How do I dice jalapenos without transferring the heat?

Dicing jalapenos can quickly add a spicy flavor to your meal. Still, it’s essential to be careful as the heat of a jalapeno can easily transfer onto other food items nearby.

To ensure that you don’t suffer from an overly spicy dish, it is recommended that you start by washing and drying the pepper thoroughly before cutting it up.

Once prepped, put on protective gear such as gloves or use a plastic cutting board to reduce the cross-contamination of jalapeno heat.

Then cut off both ends of the pepper, remove the inner core, scoop out all seeds, and discard them.

Lastly, dice the slices into small cubes and enjoy!

How do I reheat leftover soft pretzel bites?

Reheating soft pretzel bites can be accomplished in a variety of ways.

One method involves using the oven to generate heat. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and combine pretzel bites with melted butter in an oven-safe container.

Then, place the container in the oven for five to eight minutes. Remove when complete, and enjoy warm, delicious pretzel bites!

Another option for quickly reheating is microwaving; place one layer of cold pretzels on a microwave-safe plate and cook for 10 seconds until the desired temperature is reached.

Finally, a stovetop method is also appropriate, utilizing an ungreased skillet over medium heat; arrange the number of desired pretzel bites on the skillet and let them reheat for approximately two to three minutes, flipping halfway through if necessary.

Reheating soft pretzel bites does not have to be complicated—a few simple methods will have you enjoying them in no time!
