You’ve probably heard of stuffed peppers, but what about “stuffing” a few jalapeños with tequila? Since most jalapeños are usually between 2 – 3 inches, they’re the ideal size for a spicy shot. Add in a little lime and Tajin seasoning, and you’ll wonder why you’ve never tried this fun recipe before.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget to top your jalapeño shot with a touch of Tribe CBD oil. Even in a hot pepper like jalapeño, CBD has the power to “cool you down.”

CBD Jalapeño Shot Recipe 

A Sinus-Clearing CBD Shooter — Tribe’s Jalapeño CBD Shots

Jalapeños have a “hot” reputation, but they’re far from the spiciest pepper in existence. In fact, some jalapeño cultivars are surprisingly tame. For instance, Texas A&M University developed a unique jalapeño variety called “TAM Mild” with a lower-than-average heat index.

However, even if you buy an average jalapeño at your local store, it should have a score of about 3,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHUs) on the Scoville scale. For reference, a red bell pepper has 0 SHUs, but cayenne pepper could have between 30,000 to 50,000 SHUs. Currently, the Carolina reaper is the spiciest pepper known to man with a score of over 1.4 million SHUs.

As an aside: There is a jalapeño variety known as the “señorita” that’s got an extra kick. If you could find this crazy cultivar in your grocery, get ready for a heat index of around 5,000 SHUs.
