Forget everything you know about pickled relish! This jalapeño relish is fresh, bright and spicy, but not too spicy. It’s unsweetened, but the apple cider vinegar does tame the jalapeño heat a bit. This relish is for more than sandwiches and hot dogs—think nachos, quesadillas, tacos and burritos, too.
Jalapeño relish will liven up your Fourth of July leftovers, and it makes staples like scrambled eggs and beans and rice much more exciting. Basically, anywhere you would add pickled jalapeños, you can use this homemade relish instead.
If you’ve ever tried pickling your own jalapeños, you know that hot vinegar combined with spicy peppers makes you cough and fills the kitchen with the undesirable fragrance of vinegar.
So, this relish is the perfect homemade alternative to pickled jalapeños. This no-cook, hands-off version is irresistible, and keeps well in the refrigerator for a week or two. Are you as excited about this as I am?
