My Texan husband loves this! It's so simple to make. If you don't like it so spicy, delete the seeds and membrane of the jalapenos, but we think it's better with a little hear! I love adding this to my taco meat or scrambled eggs. It adds just the right amount of zest!

My husband is a long-haul truck driver, and he brought some Cowboy Candy back on his last run from Texas, and we fell in love with it.
