I have been searching for these for months after my local Asda (Stafford) stopped selling them. Finally found them in Home Bargains. Nacho night is back on! Great for adding to pizzas too.

The ones you get in the Mexican food area (like Discovery etc) are only 200g and about twice the price. Much smaller chunks too.

I am aware that these are cheaper but did you not think to substitute with the Discovery sliced Jalapeno's? Or is there something special about these Bevelini ones? I use these things in/on many things... Bootiful!

Hi Sean. The Discovery ones are silly money and I am tight as a duck's... LOL

Fair Do's - I just can't stand seeing a fellow spice lover going without

We get through a lot of jalapeno's in our house, any ideas for buying in bulk? Do these ones taste as good as discovery/old el paso ones?

I've never had the Discovery ones to be honest. I can only say these are good, and they come in nice size bits. You can always chop them if you like smaller pieces. And cos the jar is more than twice the size, they last longer.

These aren't great quality and you get a lot of ends etc. but have to say they're pretty good for the price. Roughly £1.50~ I think at Tescos. Cheaper than discovery and twice the size!

Sorry to hijack but do any subway visiters know if these are similar to their sliced jalapenos? I've tried everything in Tesco and they are always very mushy and not nearly as tangy/acidic as subway. I really want a flippin great big bag of subway jalapenos!

In subway they're much drier and I've tried drying the pickled ones from Tesco (el paso et al) but still not right!

Must be my weirdest post ever!

They are OK, but nothing like Subway's, sorry. I use tons of them (3 jars a month) and have them in sandwiches most days and on pizzas and salads. Well worth the money, but you can get much better if you are prepared to pay (I'm not!).

I always dry them on kitchen roll before using them as they can make your nachos a little wet.

wonder if you could dry off the seeds and grow your own? That would be awesome.

they are not bad. a bit crunchy/tough compared to some but perfectly acceptable and good value at this price.

Thanks, voted hot

On a seperate note where do you buy good cheap nacho ingredients? The kits are craaaazy prices..

Having tried several types, I have to say that it comes down to preference. The Discovery / Old El Paso ones are far superior in terms of heat and texture, but these guys offer better value for money (even when they are not on offer) if you tend to get through a a fair amount. As previous poster has commented, they can be a bit tough and do have the ends on, but this never bothered me.

Hot as cheap as chips

These are a hot deal, but quality varies. I did once get a deliciously spicy jar, and scoffed the lot in one sitting - I was preggers at the time!

I have been eating jalapenos for 15 years, started on the El Paso. They changed the recipe about 12 years ago and now they're no way near as good. Discovery are miles better and much like the subway ones the other poster was after.

I am tight, but jalapenos are an exception.

Not voting on the posting, if they aint great it depends on what you want to pay for

asda had these a few weeks ago, at £1..

These are pretty good.

You can buy packets of Asda value tortilla chips for about 55p (I think). I make my own refried beans and buy a jar of salsa, of which I use about half and freeze half for next time. Also use red onion, some red pepper and some cheese and just layer it all up and whack it in the oven. When my husband makes it he also puts in pieces of raw red chilli and that makes it really evil. Sometimes put some mozarella in it too if we have some to use up.

Hot from me.

Personaly I'll allways choose these if I can get them over other brands. The last few jars of Discovery etc ones I've bought were soft, the Bevelini ones were crunchy so much nicer when in a sandwich

use a few jars a month here, agree, ol' el paso don't taste that nice anymore, discovery are the best on the shelves.


I've had a few jars of these now, find them very bitter more than offering heat. alright cooked on a pizza though. have discovery in for eating out the jar or adding in to salad/main meals etc.

heat added as a good (but usual) price for a large jar and they are thick cut unlike the flakes you get with discovery.

Jalapenos are HOT, and should be crunchy. They usually soften up when they are a little old, so for those who like em soft and not so spicy break the jar seal a few weeks in advance and leave in storage, they'll soften up and lose some heat.

Great find, I used to get these at Asda for £1 a jar but they seem to have stopped doing Bevelini and replaced with another brand which I can't remember. This new brand isn't as nice as Bevelini, they are just too hot for my liking.

Love Bevelini green and red jalapenos, perfect level of heat!

Have to agree the discovery ones are best --but way overpriced --so heat for this .
Anyone tried making their own ? Peppers are pretty cheap at the local store --do you just need vinegar and salt?

I bought 12 plastic jars of discovery jalapenos from JJ's fast food (bulk suppliers) for about £18 when they are empty I keep the jars and the pickling juice inside. JJ's also sell A big tin of them for about £3 they are nice and crunch but no heat or taste. put them in the juice from the discovery ones for a week or so and they are delicious and work out about 40p a jar

Ah good plan, you clearly know your nachos! I have never found a salsa as nice as the "nachos topping sauce" you get in the old el paso kits though.. the old el paso jars of salsa are totally different...

I get the Asda brand hot salsa in the jar, about 90ish pence. It's in the same aisle as the nacho kits etc.

Never been able to find anywhere to buy Jalapenos but am considering growing my own now. NOM NOM. There are a couple of recipes online for pickling them.
