Hey Chileheads, you might be tempted to do a whole Jalapeno, but don’t.
You want a cooling, citrus-y accompaniment, not heat. I made the mistake of adding a whole Jalapeno, and it was too hot. Especially along with the heat of the Jerk seasonings on the meat.
Also, go easy on the white onion, as that particular onion packs it’s own heat.
