Ok, so I've never really cooked or worked with jalapeno peppers, or any hot peppers for that matter! :) I've just stayed away, been too afraid that they would be to hot. But when a guacamole recipe calls for jalapenos, I thought why not try it? Just put in a couple thin slices...
So I am getting more comfy working with them and putting them in recipes. The stacked beef enchiliada calls for a sauce, but I wasn't going to make this kind of sauce, b/c I knew those peppers were SUPER hot and wasn't gonna use those. So I made up my own kind and used jalapenos. It calls to roast them and then put them in a container/cup and pour hot water over them.
I was thinking, ok, I can do this, no biggie, piece of cake! I can roast them suckers and then do the rest of what needs to be done! EASY!!! Right?
Roasted them and as I was roasting them I was noticing that my throat was starting to hurt, well, not hurt, but, I don't really know how to describe it. It's like after a sore throat, it's the raw feeling, but it didn't really hurt too bad.
Then I got them in the cup and poured hot water over them, they had to sit for 20 minutes. Again, no biggie, piece of cake, right? As I was pouring the hot water over them, my eyes started to hurt. Didn't think anything of it.
Then I looked over at them and my throat was all raw and hurt, and my eyes stung! I went to go talk to Curt and was like, I think I'm having a reaction to those jalapenos! So he was like go drink a cup of milk to see if that helps! I was like it's not hot, it doesn't hurt, but I was coughing... So I go get a cup of milk and it worked a little!
So if you do this recipe, be careful! For the next 24 hours, I was hurting! I mean it! I NEVER thought I would have a reaction to it, never crossed my mind, but I was wrong!
I never drank THAT much milk in so little time! I am not a big milk fan, only if I have oreos to dunk them with! It worked for a bit.... Just be careful, that's all I'm gonna say! :D
