Cowboy Candy

Main Recipe


i bought a jar of these little dandies at a craft fair last year, and have been looking for some in stores without success. so instead i decided to find a recipe and make some. these are very hot with the seeds, or less so if seeded first. a cowboy candy slice is delicious served with cream cheese on a cracker. for a nice appetizer presentation, place 3 oz block of cream cheese on a plate. top with 2 tbsp of cowboy candy, and place crackers around the edges of the plate. note of warning: when slicing the jalapeno, i suggest wearing disposable latex gloves. also, the fumes, while slicing and cooking, are strong (but fabulous)! this recipe represents the state of texas.
