Peppers Jalapenos Nacho Slices
Chili peppers are spicy because they contain a compound called Capsaicin, which is entirely unique to the chile pepper. Capsaicin is produced by some glands in a Chili pepper's placenta, which is located in the top portion of the pepper, just below the stem. The placenta is approximately sixteen times hotter than the rest of the pepper, and it is usually removed with the seeds. nachos are simply tortillas and cheese, but most cooks serve nachos with an assortment of toppings, and a nacho platter can, in fact, grow quite elaborate. Nachos are a common offering on the appetizer menus of restaurants in the American Southwest, especially establishments with a Mexican bent, and they are extremely abundant in Southwestern ballparks and sports arenas; they can also be made at home.
