Yummy Cilantro-Jalapeno Hummus
If you love cilantro, you will love this hummus! I usually adjust the cilantro and lemon juice for flavor after mixing. Be sure to wear gloves while preparing the jalapeno; the oil will stay on your skin for a long time and will burn your eyes if you wear contacts. (I found out the hard way!) The hummus can be made up to 3 days ahead and refrigerated. Return to room temperature before serving with crackers or pita bread.

Jalapeño Strawberry Jam
This jalapeño-strawberry jam is a favorite in our family at Christmas. It's not spicy, but it can be if you add more jalapeño peppers or even a few habanero peppers. The flavor of the sweet strawberries combined with the flavor of the jalapeños gives this jam a wonderful dimension.
