Made ABT's over the weekend. Along with a couple ribeyes. Not a lot of pics. But, these were the hottest jalapenos I've had. Standard filling with cream cheese and Mexican blend cheese. With some sweet heat rub.

I know that the heat level can vary in peppers from various reasons. But, lordy, these were hot! But, delicious too!

That looks fantastic Steve. I could go for a couple of those to start my day
And I know what you mean about the heat.

I remember last year I was chopping some and the heat actually went into my fingers while I was chopping.
That was a first for me, they where the hottest Jalapeno's I have ever had.

My garden produces great jalapenos and serranos. One year they will be medium and the next year they are 'come on ice cream' hot.

Look yummy from here. Had some at a friends last weekend. People where saying to hot but I found them just right to go with a beer. I know what your talking about though. Sometimes they off the scale.

Nice looking ABTs Steve. My BIL has a tray similar to yours and that's my favorite way to have them.
I think it's that little bit of liquid that collects at the bottom of the Jap that I like.

Point for sure

I have heard if they are grown near other hotter peppers that cross pollination can spike their scoville units?

Looks fantastic Steve, I'd need a couple of Rolling Rocks to wash that down and cut the heat! RAY

Awesome looking, and I like 'em hot. As to the cross pollination, that only applies to the next generation of peppers. If you harvest the seeds and grow them from seed, odds are high you'll have a different level of heat / flavor.

Those look great Steve, and it is a crap shoot when you get jalapeños.
Judy & I really don’t care if they are too hot, but if you have company & serve them the hot ones, in most cases they are too hot for just about everyone.

Thanks David!
Is that a pepper tray holder, or something else you repurposed

David
It is a pepper tray. I got it on Amazon I believe. Came with a pepper corer too. Handy to have.

Lol!
Looks god Steve
Thanks Jim! Haven't heard from you in a bit.

Thanks Brian! I have a decent tolerance to heat. But these were pushing it.
look tasty!!
Thank you!

Thanks John! I've they can be hot. But these were a surprise!

Interesting. That could be.

Thanks Ray! I had a couple beers to wash em down!

Thank you! I didn't know that. These were locally grown from an organic gardener. Perhaps that is what they did.

Look tasty Steve! You are sure right, the heat on jalapeños varies greatly. I like it when they have a good kick.

Looking good Steve. We have the exact opposite problem here. The jalapenos over the last several years have zero tingle to them. Been kind of a bummer. Hopefully I'll get my greenhouse built this Spring and grow my own.
