Frequently Asked Questions
There are a couple of ways to roast the jalapeños. If you have a gas range, you can roast them directly over the flame, turning them frequently so they do not burn. They are done when they are charred and slightly blistered. Alternatively, you can lay them on a baking sheet and put them under the oven broiler for 3 to 4 minutes.
If you are not a fan of mayo, or cannot have eggs, Greek yogurt makes a great substitution in this recipe. If you substitute with yogurt, I recommend omitting the vinegar.
