  • Candied Jalapeños are sometimes referred to as cowboy candy and they are ridiculously addictive. The sweet heat of candied jalapeños also makes a great little party appetizer served with crackers and cream cheese.

Although I do some baking, I don't consider myself a baker as I can't stand having to measure. When it comes to cooking my philosophy is add a bit of this, a dash of that, a splash of something doesn't hurt, never forget some type of pepper and always add at least one clove of garlic. Thanks for stopping by my Spicy Texas Kitchen and I hope to see you again!!! Melody
