Pulled Brisket Cheeseburger Slider with Candied Jalapenos

I’ve found brisket cheeseburger Heaven, and it’s sprinkled with candied jalapeños.


She is one hot freakin’ mess on a pretty platter.

See, this is what happens. And, yes, I’m about to rant; just stay with me here. When I get all stressed out I have to just go cook something.

And say bad words  .

I’m discovering that the more stressed out I am, the better my food is.

And the more foul my mouth is.


Not sure if that’s a good thing – I mean, it probably is. 

But, this morning as I was stressing the hell out I had a vision of this slider. It’s moments like this that I silently high five myself for freezing leftovers. If it were up to Mark he would throw everything out; but not my frugal ass.

No. I paid good money for that brisket. I’m freezing that shit.

Remember these?


I made another batch a couple of days ago and let me just go ahead and tell you…


They are as hot as 17 different forms of hell.

I don’t remember my cute little jalapeños setting my ass on fire quite like these do. I love heat, but I gotta say, these take it to a whole new level. It’s like, I’m-panicking-and-I-don’t-know-if-I-can-handle-this-heat level.

Seriously – shoving bread down your throat type of heat level.

So, just a little tip here if you make them anytime soon – take the seeds out if you don’t want to burn the F out of your mouth. Ya’ll know I can handle heat – so you know they’re pretty severe. Maybe it’s this latest season of jalapeños. I don’t know.

I really hope my Nanny isn’t reading this.

    Nice read & looks like an awesome recipe. Snack seasonings really do contribute to yummy dishes like this one. Poor ingredients equal a poor recipe and product. Thanks for the recipe though!! Looks awesome!
