Pickled Chillies

Postby WWordsworth » June 28th, 2018, 12:56 pm

I bought a jar of pickled chillies to make Hairy Dieters' doner kebabs.

They were fantastic but I don't know what to do with the rest of the jar - apart from more kebabs I suppose.

Any suggestions?

I like them as part of a Greek salad. We had visitors at the weekend and they brought a smoked eel and some smoked cod roe from a local smokehouse. The eel has just been finished, I think maybe some taramasalata , hummus and Greek salad at the weekend :hungry:

are they the small, boquino type? - cos they go rather nicely on pizza otherwise anywhere that a little flavour bomb is needed - as said, salad, pasta sauce, chilli, paella - many things.
if the jalapeño type then all of the above but finely sliced (chopped if pre-sliced) in the salad. they last well in the fridge until you need chillies again. or like my son, eat them from the jar!

Use them as a topping for gazpacho
In burgers or hotdogs
to top nachos with soured cream and guacamole
In fajitas
Added to cheese toasties
Use in a salsa
Mexican eggs

Like scullion's my 10 and 13 yr old nephews eat straight from the jar

Once you start using them you will think of so many more ways. They are pretty versatile

Took the words right out of my mouth. I am an out of the jar fiend myself, but I guess they could be added to anything you'd add fresh to. I'm trying to add to Catherine's suggestions, but I can't!

it does depend which type.
if the little biquinho type ones they are small (fingernail sized) and sweet with not much heat. jalapeños are (usually) green, come sliced in a jar, and have a bit of a kick.

Thanks folks.
I'm pretty au fait with fresh chillies but this recipe specifies pickled so J bought some.
I would have just got the regular ones out of the freezer.

My chilli plant (from last year) is in full bloom ATM and as I still have dried ones from last year, may well pickle some of this years. They are yellow and HOT!
