Taco Tuesday is a huge trend, but hot sauce is good every day! Why not add some weed heat for Taco Tuesday with jalapeños? While they don’t bring as much heat as other peppers, they certainly add a rich flavor. They are a staple of the taco bar and pickled jalapeño’s show up in Bloody Mary’s, with eggs and so much more. So why not make a marijuana sauce to give an extra kick?
74% of people like to put hot sauce on their food, but not everyone is down with high or medium heat. Most salsas sold are either mild or medium. In their green form, jalapeño peppers have a fresh, bright, green bell pepper flavor with a gentle kick, almost a nudge. If you leave them to ripen longer, red jalapeño peppers carry a slightly sweeter flavor and increase in spice.
Taco Tuesday is an invention of the US, but is celebrated in a few other countries, such as in Canada, the UK and Australia. In Norway, the terms Fredagstaco and Tacofredag are used to refer to eating tacos on Friday night. In Sweden, serving tacos on Fridays is common for Fredagsmys.
Taco John’s started the “Taco Tuesday” trend in the 80s in Wyoming (which seems a bit strange).
