Living in El Paso for two and a half years conditioned me regarding many different things and one of those is food. One of the favorite items, I brought into my life was Jalapeno Ketchup.
While we lived in El Paso, we became very familiar with Whataburger. Whataburger is a wonderful restaurant chain limited to the Texas region. One of the offerings of ketchup is the spicy variation of Heinz Ketchup. When we left El Paso to come to Kanas, we thought we had to say good-bye to our beloved “hot” ketchup. The world became a better place when I walked through the commissary and found a bottle of Jalapeno Ketchup. I immediately placed the bottle in my cart and used it that very night. We found that the spicy ketchup was a great match for what we had enjoyed in Texas.
Jalapeno Ketchup tastes best with French fries. This is particularly true with fast food French fries. I think it has something to do with the oil mixture, but it may be that fast food fries are just better. The ketchup tastes good with baked fires and tater tots, as well as on top of a hamburger. However, another El Paso thing I learned was to put green chilis on the burger. If this is the case, the, the Jalapeno Ketchup adds too much heat.
So, if you are tired of your run of the mill ketchup, give the Jalapeno variety a try!
