6. Cream of Roasted Jalapeño Soup
Roasted jalapenos have a milder flavor than their fresh counterpart. Their flavor is perfect for sauces, soups, and stews. The jalapenos are roasted whole and left in their skins, which allows the skin to maintain part of the flavor.

It’s always a good idea to taste the dip or salsa before serving it to others so you can make sure the spice level is on point! The great thing about this dip is that it’s even better on the second day!
The flavors blend together and the dip becomes thicker and more flavorful. It’s great with sliced veggies, chips and crackers, or even as a topping for some buffalo chicken wings.
If you need to make it for a party, it’s a great option for an appetizer, but if you’re just eating it for dinner, it’s a delicious side dish!
8. Gouda Jalapeno Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese Sandwich
A great recipe for any gouda jalapeño fan! If you’re like me, you’ll love how this sandwich is filling and can both be a light meal and a perfect addition to lunch with a salad and apple slices.
Nobody ever said that all of the greatest recipes had to be complicated or hard to make. The ability to create a tasty meal from scratch is becoming a lost art!
9. Kale Salad with Roasted Jalapeño Dressing
Dressing kale becomes a lot more interesting when you add tahini, roasted jalapeño, lemon juice, and red bell pepper. The jalapeño adds not only a kick of spice, but also a smoky flavor, while the avocado contributes healthy fats and creaminess to the dressing.
The result is a meal that is both fun to eat and delicious. The kale can be chopped in advance and stored in the fridge, which makes this salad easy to throw together as a go-to side dish.

Jalapeños are a spicy and flavorful ingredient. They add a kick to anything you add them to and they are a fantastic addition to salads and sandwiches.

This salad is super easy to make and has all of your favorite flavors in it! The roasted jalapenos in the hot sauce give the potatoes a great flavor!
You can add in some bacon or grilled chicken, if you like, to make it more complete!
- I usually like to peel my jalapenos before cutting them in half. However, this can be dangerous because it makes the pepper hotter and harder to handle. If you must do it, be careful not to get burned! I always wear gloves when doing this.
- You can use jalapenos of any size. I use a mixture of large and small.
- For a real kick, add Tabasco.
- Do not worry about the seeds.
- If you like, you can use a paper towel to rub the jalapenos dry. This is not necessary, but helps prevent “fiery fingers.”
1. Don’t worry about the heat; be mindful of how much salt you use. There are a lot of great recipes for jalapenos on the internet, but it’s hard to find a good guide for preparing jalapenos in general. We’ll give you some guidance on how to roast jalapenos at a low temperature to avoid burning, and then we’ll show you a couple of recipes that you can make at home.
2. Always use fresh jalapenos. They don’t last as long as pre-packaged jalapenos, but fresh ones do have a different flavor than canned jalapenos. If you’re roasting jalapenos for a party, you want to make sure they’re fresh. Canned jalapenos can be a little tough to handle when you’re cutting them.
3. Don’t salt the jalapenos until you are ready to serve them. Salt will draw out moisture from the peppers, making them drier. They will then take longer to roast.
4. Make sure to buy the jalapeño peppers whole. Jalapeños are notoriously difficult to roast. For a hot pepper, they have a thick shell and the seeds inside can be hard to get out. Because of this, you may be tempted to remove the seed before roasting them. But if you do this, the hotness of the pepper will be diluted. The best way to deal with this is to purchase whole jalapeños and roast them in a hot oven.
5. To get the most out of your jalapeños, start roasting them as soon as you get them home. You can buy whole jalapeños at your local grocery store or specialty food shop. To make sure you don’t waste any of the pepper, you should roast the peppers as soon as you get them home. This gives you the time to peel away the outer skin and cut them into smaller pieces.
How Do You Reheat Roasted Jalapenos?
There are two ways to reheat jalapenos. If you want to reheat them for a snack or appetizer, then you may heat them in the microwave.
For a full meal, you can cook them in a skillet with a bit of oil and a bit of garlic. Once they are reheated, cut them into strips and add them to a dish that has been marinated in a bit of lemon juice, olive oil, and a bit of salt and pepper.
What are Roasted Jalapenos?
Jalapenos are typically known for their piquant spice, and while they have that characteristic, there are different varieties of peppers that come with unique aromas and flavors.
I love to use jalapenos (green peppers) in a variety of dishes as their flavor is so delicious and unique.
Roasted jalapenos have become a regular staple in my pantry for a wide variety of dishes, such as my Roasted Jalapeno Lime Chicken, my Roasted Garlic Chicken, and my Roasted Jalapeno Corn on the Cob.
I love to use them as a topping on my Spaghetti Aglio e Olio recipe, and they create a great combination with the garlic and oil in this pasta dish.
Roasted jalapenos are a simple, easy, and tasty way to enhance the flavors of all the other ingredients in a dish, and to make it even more delicious.
If you have never cooked with roasted jalapenos, do not be afraid to give them a try. They are incredibly versatile, can be used to add heat and depth of flavor to dishes, and are quite easy to make.
How To Make Roasted Jalapenos
1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a small bowl, mix the butter, oil, cumin, and paprika.
2. Rub the jalapenos with the mixture.
3. Place the peppers on a baking sheet, skin side up, and bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are tender.
What To Serve With Roasted Jalapenos
If you’ve ever had roasted jalapeños, you know they’re a bit like candy.
They’re sweet and spicy and sticky and they make everything better.
But if you’re looking to pair them with a meal, there are few things better than a simple and elegant salad.
This is a very basic, straightforward salad: cucumbers, avocado, onions, tomato, and feta cheese. The addition of fresh mint is key, and it works beautifully with the sweetness and heat of the roasted peppers.
