My youngest and I are totally obsessed with Pickled Jalapeños. In fact, we go through so many jars because we love them on our tacos that much. She and I are often fighting for the last one at the bottom of the jar.

I’m so pumped to have this pickled jalapeño recipe for you (and her and I!) so that we can all have pickled jalapeños whenever our hearts desire.

While my heart desires pickled jalapeños, it does not desire heartburn. Jalapeños have a kick to them, and sometimes their heat flares up my occasional heartburn. If you also struggle with frequent heartburn, I recommend you try Omeprazole Orally Disintegrating Tablets (ODT).

Omeprazole ODT, used to treat the symptoms of frequent heartburn, is super convenient. The disintegrating tablets are easy to keep on hand and dissolve on your tongue with a great strawberry flavor, which means you can take them without water. Using Omeprazole ODT is a great way to relieve heartburn and continue to enjoy all your favorite spicy foods. Learn more here.

Use as directed for 14 days to treat frequent heartburn (occurring 2 or more days a week). May take 1-4 days for full effect. Not intended for immediate relief.

Pickled Jalapeño Ingredients

One of the best things about this recipe, besides how quickly it comes together, is how few ingredients you need. In addition to water, you need five ingredients.

  • Jalapeños
  • Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Garlic

That’s it! So easy to make this family favorite.

How to Make Pickled Jalapeños

These quick pickled jalapeños are perfect because how fast they are to make.

  1. Start by slicing your jalapeños thin.
  2. In a medium stock pot combine water, vinegar, sugar, salt, and the garlic cloves.
  3. Bring it to a roaring boil. Add the jalapeños, making sure they are covered by the water.
  4. Turn off the heat and cover for 15 minutes.

How Long Do Pickled Jalapeños Last

To be on the safe side, I would only keep these in the refrigerator for a month. While many resources suggest they will last longer, there are many factors that can shorten the time that they last – such as the purity of the vinegar.

When it comes to any homemade ingredients, always play it safe, and rely on your sense of taste and smell. If they smell off sooner than a month, discard them.

Spiciness

These are fairly spicy when eaten right after making them. If you would like to reduce the spice, use 2 tablespoons of sugar instead of one. Additionally, the longer they sit in the refrigerator the less spicy they become.

Great Ways to Use Pickled Jalapeños

I often use Pickled Jalapeños as an ingredient in recipes, not just as a condiment. Here are some of my favorites:

    Would I be able to use banana peppers in this same recipe? Thank you!

  2. Stefanee Townsend says

    I am so excited about my first batch of these wonderful Pickled Jalapenos! These are a perfect addition to the standard menus I rotate in my WW cycle. After #105 pounds down since 12/2018, adding something spicy and flavorful to my scrambled eggs with veggies breakfast this morning was a real thrill. The work was simple, easy to follow, and quick. Thanks for all of the work and ideas you share!

  3. Patricia Morris says

    To reduce the spiciness remove all of the seeds and pith.

  4. Tara North says

    Can these be canned?

  5. Angela Adams says

    Is there a way of jarring these and putting these up longer? If so, how?
