This is truly a tasty recipe, but I found it lacked the heat that authentic jerk chicken has. Mind you, really authentic jerk chicken can be intolerably hot for the uninitiated. I find that the quality of jalapeno peppers has really declined over the last ten to fifteen years, such that they don't pack much of a punch anymore (you shouldn't be able to eat a raw one, but often you can). Instead try a SMALL amount of scotch bonnet peppers instead. Cut them open, seed them and remove the ribs. Do NOT touch your eyes, face or loved ones after handling! You'll find these pack a much bigger punch for your dollar. Try just one pepper for this recipe at first, then add more the next time if you like it spicier.
