I love eating this with cream cheese and crackers or toasted english muffin with cream cheese. Makes a great appetizer with cream cheese and crackers and a glaze for chicken wings! You can omit the jalapeno peppers if you do not want any heat or to reduce heat, remove seeds and veins of jalapenos. You can also use a food processor to chop peppers, chop in food processor with vinegar.
