Topping ideas

One of our family’s favorite add-ins to soups is sweet and spicy jalapeno Canned Cowboy Candy. Canned Cowboy Candy is the perfect way to preserve many jalapenos in an addictive sweet and spicy sauce. They are also great on burgers, Mexican foods, in dips, and pimento cheese spread.
  • pickled jalapenos (see recipe above)
  • taco chips
  • avocado
  • lime wedges
  • hot sauce
  • cilantro
  • shredded cheese
