Thanks everybody for participating!
I recently had the opportunity to try a new-to-me product that originated right here in my home state in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. It's called Pappy's Jalapeño Pepper Spread and it's a great versatile spread to use as a mayonnaise substitute in just about anything, or as a dip straight out of the jar for corn chips, potato chips, tortilla chips, and even for raw vegetables. If you love the addition of jalapenos to your recipes like I do, you are gonna absolutely love this product!
The story behind Pappy's Jalapeño Pepper Spread is classic. A hot mayo recipe that was born out of a grandpa's kitchen and a well loved family favorite, it was soon passed down to the grandchildren, who then shared it with friends who also loved it and encouraged that it be produced for the masses. Soon the company behind Pappy's Jalapeño Pepper Spread, Mile Post 16 LLC, was born. You'll even love the story of how the company name came to be.
Pappy's Jalapeño Pepper Spread is made with jalapenos, green onion, garlic and lemon. If you need a little inspiration they have a few recipes at their site, but really just think of it any place you'd normally use mayo. I've used it as a spread to bump up the boredom of a plain turkey sandwich and added it in place of mayonnaise to a juicy grilled burger. I've tried some in my fabulous shrimp salad when I made a shrimp salad stuffed tomato recently, simply substituting some of the mayonnaise with a very generous dollop of Pappy's for an extra yummy pop!
This spread is also a great addition to any ole egg salad, including plain egg, tuna, and ham salad, and it's great even in pasta salads. Just add a spoonful to your usual dressing to give it a delicious zest, like I did with the ham and macaroni salad here recently. Add some into your favorite dip, try stirring a bit of it into rice, or even smudging some on a piece of cornbread.
Making a batch of nachos, tacos, tortilla soup, or chili where you normally like a little dollop of sour cream? Try a dollop of Pappy's Pepper Spread instead like I did with this batch of chili cheese fries. Talk about good!
Look for Pappy's to be showing up at your local grocery store in the near future, but in the meantime you can pop right on over to their website where you can order by the jar and by the case. And, get this y'all - if you want to excite your taste buds even further, check out the other spreads they carry. Coming soon is a green bell pepper spread, as well as some products coming up that will be made using extra virgin olive oil.
