DIRECTIONS

  • Combine warm water, yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar. Allow to stand 3-5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the flour and red chili pepper flakes; stir in the chopped jalapenos. Add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until it forms into a ball.
  • Knead for 10 to 12 minutes, adding more flour if necessary, until dough is stiff. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide into 8 equal pieces and form into balls. Punch a hole in middle with floured finger and gently pull to enlarge hole to 2 inches.
  • Place bagels on greased baking sheet; cover with tea towel and allow to rise for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare water bath and put it on to boil.
  • Once water bath is boiling, reduce heat to a simmer. Place bagels, 2-3 at a time, in water for 1 1/2 minutes, turning after 45 seconds.
  • Remove and drain, placing on greased baking sheet. Brush with egg wash. The egg wash enhances browning of the bagels.
  • Bake at 400°F for 18 to 20 minutes.
