The jalapeno challenge — recipe No. 2

I learned three things yesterday.

1. Soaking fingers in milk really does ease a jalapeno pepper burn.

2. My kids don’t react when they walk in the kitchen and see me soaking my hands in a bowl of milk.

3. Hulling strawberries is a lot easier than I thought.


  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 24 strawberries, hulled
  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
  • ½ teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro

Wash strawberries and pat dry. Hollow out strawberries with a spoon.

In a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, jalapeno, lime juice and chili powder.

Stuff strawberries with the cheese mixture. Dip cheese end of strawberry into cilantro.

Refrigerate one hour and serve.
