Our Perfect Home Made Chilli Poppers
January 30, 2013 in Uncategorized
When the lovely man’s birthday came around, we played around with ideas of eating out and restaurants to choose from, but all he wanted was a home made Mexican feast. We had all the standards – chilli con carne, tortillas, sour cream, guacamole, cheddar – and decided to make chilli poppers to start the feast.
I hunted for pickled Jalapeno chillies (what we normally use) but could not find them anywhere. I found large, fresh chillies at my local supermarket, and decided to try and pickle them myself. Feeling like the perfect little wife-to-be I was rather chuffed with myself – until we started eating them. Somehow in between me pickling them and Luke slitting and stuffing them, we had forgotten to remove the seeds. They were scorchingly, mind-blowingly hot – so much so, that they gave me hiccups. I tried to soak my lips and tongue in milk, but it didn’t help. We were devastated. We were so looking forward to eating the fruits of our labour, but just couldn’t. We’ll never forget for next time though…
