Because I didn't want huge chunks of garlic or jalapeno, I put them in the Vitamix to mince first. Then I added the rest of the ingredients. I used the tamper to push down the ingredients. I kept the variable on 2 because I wanted bigger chunks.
This is a winner. Particularly if you like spice. I used a whole jalapeno with the seeds. I'm pretty loosey goosey with my measurements. So if you want to try the recipe, feel free to adjust the spice or the ingredients.
