  1. Won’t those jalepeno peppers set my mouth afire? They look super yummy and great to take to the office but my comrades might develop suspicions toward me.

    • Hi Kate! Because the jalapeños are seeded, this recipe isn’t overly spicy. The pepper jelly does add a kick though! I think your coworkers would love this recipe!
