    PanNan's Note:

    I bought a jar of these little dandies at a craft fair last year, and have been looking for some in stores without success. So instead I decided to find a recipe and make some. These are very hot with the seeds, or less so if seeded first. A cowboy candy slice is delicious served with cream cheese on a cracker. For a nice appetizer presentation, place 3 oz block of cream cheese on a plate. Top with 2 tbsp of cowboy candy, and place crackers around the edges of the plate. Note of warning: when slicing the jalapeno, I suggest wearing disposable latex gloves. Also, the fumes, while slicing and cooking, are strong (but fabulous)! This recipe represents the state of Texas.

      I'm not rating this particular recipe because I haven't tried it. I also bought a jar at a craft show and loved it with cream cheese and crackers. When I try this recipe, I will review it. Thanks PanNan for your recipe.

      Our peppers are really hot so next time we will remove the seeds to mild it, but the recipe is great!
