Tequila. Jalapeños. Now that’s adding fuel to the fire—in the best way. These hand-batched pickled jalapeños from Frankie’s Fine Brine aren’t your grandma’s pickled peppers. A little bit of heat and a zingy tequila-spiked vinegar brine mean just the right amount of bite, enriched by earthy, slightly citrusy Mexican oregano, and a subtle smokiness. The hint of booze in the background (hat tip to tequila) makes a strong case for sipping a margarita on the side. Hot take: Tequila Jalapeños will be right at home in your prized stockpile of pickled things.
Tip of the tongue:
We’re sweating these spicy little suckers. While the hotheads among us would happily eat these on their own, their fresh, fiery boozy kick compliments all sorts of savory snacks. Tacos and nachos are natural companions, but try Tequila Jalapeños topping a bowl of chili, polenta, a pizza, or a hot dog. Use them as a garnish on your next margarita or take a shot as a tequila pickleback!
