Zesty Mixed Vegetables

Russ Myers


Jalapenos are a small, dark green chili, normally 2 to 3 inches long and about 3/4 inches wide with a blunt tapered end. Jalapeno flavor varies from hot to very hot. Use 1 to 2 in this dish depending on your preference. Chilies can sting and irritate the skin; wear rubber gloves when handling chilies and do not touch eyes. Wash hands after handling.
