Yo, listen up! Taco Tuesday is all the rage, but let’s talk about something even hotter – hot sauce! And not just any hot sauce, we’re talkin’ about adding some weed heat to your Taco Tuesday with jalapeños. These bad boys may not bring the same heat as other peppers, but they sure do bring a rich flavor to the table. They’re like a staple at every taco bar and you can find those pickled jalapeños kickin’ it in Bloody Mary’s, eggs, and so much more. So why not take it up a notch and make a marijuana sauce to give your tacos that extra kick?
According to Instacart-Harris, a whopping 74% of people love to slather their food with hot sauce. But let’s be real, not everyone can handle that high or medium heat. Most salsas out there are either mild or medium. But here’s the deal with jalapeño peppers – in their green form, they have this fresh, bright, green bell pepper flavor with just a gentle kick. It’s like a little nudge to wake up your taste buds. If you let them ripen longer, those red jalapeño peppers bring a slightly sweeter flavor and crank up the spice level.
Now, let’s discuss Taco Tuesday for a minute. It may have been invented in the US, but believe it or not, it’s celebrated in some other countries too. Yeah, you heard me right! Our neighbors up north in Canada, as well as peeps in the UK and Australia, know how to get down on Taco Tuesday. And check this out – in Norway, they have their own terms for chowin’ down on tacos. They call it Fredagstaco and Tacofredag on Friday nights. Oh, and in Sweden, it’s common to serve tacos on Fridays for what they call Fredagsmys. Tacos, man, they know no boundaries!
Now, here’s a little history lesson for y’all. Taco John’s, yeah that fast food joint, actually started the whole “Taco Tuesday” trend back in the 80s. And get this, they did it in Wyoming of all places. I mean, who would’ve thought, right?
Alright, enough talk about tacos and trends. Let’s get to the good stuff – jalapeño hot sauce with a little Mary Jane twist. Here’s what you’ll need:
– 3 jalapeño peppers
– 1 green bell pepper, chopped
– 3 teaspoons of cannabis-infused olive oil
– ¾ cup of white vinegar
– 2 tablespoons of fish sauce
– Juice of 1 lime
– 6-8 cloves of garlic
– ¼ cup of chopped onions
– 1 cup of tomatillos
– Salt to taste
Here’s how you make this fire sauce:
1. Heat up a saucepan over medium heat and add that cannabis-infused olive oil.
2. Once the pan is nice and hot, throw in the onions, garlic, and tomatillos. Sauté them up and then let ’em steam by covering the saucepan for about 5-10 minutes.
3. Take off the cover and season it up with some salt, vinegar, and fish sauce. Let everything simmer for another 10-15 minutes.
4. Pour everything into a blender. Add a little regular olive oil to the mix and blend it all up until it’s smooth and creamy.
5. Time to add that lime juice! Blend it some more until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
6. Let the sauce cool down and then transfer it to your favorite bottle.
Boom! You just made yourself some homemade jalapeño hot sauce with a little green twist. Now go ahead and drizzle it on your tacos, burritos, or whatever else you want. This sauce will put a kick in your Taco Tuesday and have your taste buds dancing all night long.
