Notes

  • Do not touch the jalapeno seeds.  They will make your hands burn for hours.  Use a  jalapeno tool to remove the seeds.  
  • If you do not have a tool, you a knife or spoon to remove the seeds.
  • I found an organic, jasmine cooked rice in the freezer section at Trader Joe's.  It was perfect for this dish!
