Can you believe these crunchy, tangy, and sweet pickled jalapenos are ready in under 10 minutes?! After trying this quick pickled jalapeno recipe, I promise you will never go back to jarred jalapenos again. This recipe seriously could not be easier and is well worth the time.
These jalapenos are so much better than canned and do not contain preservatives or artificial colors. The mixture of vinegar and salt act as a natural preservative (no canning needed) and help keep the jalapenos good in the fridge for up to two months. Although, I doubt they will last that long! a jar never lasts longer than a week around here.
This method also works well with any other type of chilis or even sliced pickles. I sometimes toss in some baby carrots or slices or bell peppers and they tastes so good too! You can also control the heat level but adding more or less sugar. I used 2 tablespoons and the jalapenos are still spicy but not too spicy and have a nice tangy/sweet flavor.
