Just have to share this recipe for Cowboy Candy...

I was told about Cowboy Candy by my nephew who is in the Air Force in Del Rio, TX. They buy it there and love it. It is candied jalapenos and they chop it up into a relish and use it on everything! Over cream cheese for an app, on tacos, eggs, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, quesadillas, ect...I couldn't wait to get some (they are going to send me a jar) so looked it up on the web, found a recipe and made it today. It is the best! Sweet, with a nice spicy back burn. We just made carne asada and put it on that.

I used 3 cups of sliced jalapeno, 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 3/4 cup of sugar. Put everything into a sauce pan, brought to a boil, reduced heat to low and simmered 20 minutes. I did not use the food coloring and it still looked good.

This is definitely going to be a staple in our home from now on! Hope some of you try it!
