Have I ever told you guys the story about how I craved jalapenos when I was pregnant with my son? Man, I could not get enough of them. The problem was – and still is – that I find them too spicy, too hot for my liking, yet in my opinion the flavour of jalapeno cannot be beat!
I solved that problem 14 years ago by dipping the jalapenos in sour cream to cool them down when I was craving them. I honestly can’t believe that I just typed the words “fourteen years” regarding any aspect of my children, but there it is. Fourteen years ago, I was eating jalapenos dipped in sour cream like a mad woman.
Since that time, I’ve had to learn a little bit, nay, I’ve had to learn a LOT about getting my kids to eat. Those of you that are long time readers of The Kitchen Magpie will know about my trials and tribulations getting my son to eat meat and getting my daughter to eat, well, almost anything actually. I have two selective eaters and mealtimes can be a challenge.
You might be thinking to yourself right now “ Karlynn, you’re crazy!! What kid is going to eat jalapenos in their grilled cheese?”
My son loves spicy food. That kid has been wolfing down curries since he was 18 months old and hasn’t stopped. It’s actually always been eating meat that he has a problem with.
The best part about this recipe is that if you remove the jalapenos…. you have plain grilled cheese roll-ups! Which are perfect my for daughter, the really selective eater.
Recipes that can easily be adapted to each person’s needs in the family are the WIN! [Read More…]
