With their fiery kick, jalapenos will add a spicy flavor to your favorite recipes. If you can stand the heat, the small peppers also taste good on their own. Cooking jalapenos deepens and enhances their flavor all for just a few calories and a negligible amount of fat, as well as a boost of vitamin C and potassium.

Broiled Jalapenos

Step 1

Turn the oven on to the broiler setting.

Step 2

Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 3

Cut the tops off of each jalapeno and discard them. Run the tip of a sharp knife around the top opening of each pepper to cut away the seeds. Discard the seeds as well.

Step 4

Place the peppers on the sprayed baking sheet and place them in the oven.

Step 5

Broil the jalapenos until the skin starts to bubble and turn black.

Step 6

Flip the jalapeno peppers and continue broiling them until the second side starts to bubble and turn black.
