It is pronounced: hah lah pain yo. Most people think of the jalapeño as being very hot, but it actually varies from mild to hot depending on how it was grown and how it was prepared. The heat is concentrated in the seeds and the veins, so if you want it on the milder end of its scale, remove those parts.
Jalapeños are sold canned, sliced, and pickled. Canned jalapeños may be milder than fresh because they are usually peeled and the seeds removed. Pickled jalapeños are always hot.
A chipotle (pronounced: chi poat lay) is a jalapeño that has been smoked. The jalapeño rates between 2,500 and 8,000 Scoville units on the heat index.
Vejam só esse drink... Parece ter cara de Nachada!
E ainda rima: Michelada
¿Le gustaria una Michelada, Caballero?
Micheladas have been around for decades in Mexico and have been especially popular in the Northern areas of Mexico. The Michelada stemmed from the usual practice of adding a squeeze of lime and a dash of salt to a beer. Now there are as many recipes as there are bartenders. Here is a simple recipe for this beer cocktail including the more popular ingredients and suggestions for other variations.
- 1 ice cold Mexican beer (dark is better)
- coarse salt (for the rim)
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1-2 dashes of hot chile sauce (such as Tabasco, Tapatio or Cholula)
- 1 dashes of soy sauce
- 1 dashes worchestshire sauce
- beer mug or large glass (chilled if possible)
- lime wedge for garnish
PREPARATION:Salt the rim of the glass by wetting the edge with some of the lime juice then dipping it into a plate with salt on it. Now fill the glass about half way with ice and pour in the lime juice, chile sauce, soy sauce and worchestshire sauce.
Mix with a spoon then slowly pour in the beer to the top of the glass. Push the lime wedge onto the edge and serve immediatley. When you have a few drinks, pour the remaining beer into the cocktail.
- A dash of Maggi Sauce
- A pinch of black pepper.
- 1-2 pinches of all-purpose meat seasoning.
- A pinch of celery salt
- Do not salt the rim, instead add 1-2 pinches of salt to the cocktail.

Mesmo sendo aqui em casa e eu sabendo todos os detalhes, acho que para mim será uma festa surpresa.
É que vários dos ilustres e tradicionais convidados estão dando um upgrade em suas vidas em lugares distantes. Somado a isto tem o fato de que estou em uma fase um tanto estranha da vida, assim a festa não terá tanto uma cara de comemoração, mas sim como aquele bom momento que você esquece o resto e aproveita.
E sei que vai ser legal. Temos até blog agora!
