If you like spicy, I would recommend using the whole jalapeño, although the spice level may vary from pepper to pepper. It's best to start with part of the jalapeño and add more until desired spiciness is reached. If you don't like too much spice, slice the jalapeño lengthwise and deseed the pepper using a spoon. If you don't own a Vitamix, blend all ingredients together using a powerful food processor until smooth.
