I got this from the Daily News. It's a great twist on traditional latkes.

I used the general idea of this recipe but made it a bit more healthy. I decided to broil each latkes on each side after I sprayed them with cooking spray and a cookie sheet with cooking spray. They were not as crisp as they would be if I fried them, but they tasted just as good. The jalapeno really gives these a kick! Also I ended up not using as much matzo meal in his recipe.
