This recipe comes from cooks.com. It was submitted by Jo. My husband loves the jalapeno picked eggs we can buy at a local store. They are expensive though so I wanted to see if I could make some up. I couldn't find a recipe like we were looking for here but I did find this one online. He said they are really good. I cut the original recipe in half and added more garlic. We didn't add the hot sauce and he said they didn't need it, they were plenty hot enough without so it is up to how hot you like stuff. Time does not including egg cooking or the marinating for 1 week.
