Sinig (Ethiopian Stuffed Jalapeños) Recipe 

Ethiopians’ fondness for spicy cuisine is well-known, and Sinig stands as a testament to this preference. Despite Ethiopian dishes being inherently spice-rich, Sinig takes it up a notch, adding an extra kick to any meal. Its versatility extends beyond Ethiopian cuisine, seamlessly complementing non-Ethiopian dishes as well.

Ingredients Required to Make Sinig

  • 1 medium yellow (or red) onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 large tomatoes (beefsteak work well), seeds discarded, diced
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • Salt, to taste
  • 6 large jalapeño peppers

How to Make Sinig (Step-by-Step Tutorial)

  1. Place the diced onions, diced garlic, and diced tomatoes in a medium bowl. Mix the ingredients well.
  2. Add the vegetable oil, white vinegar, and salt to taste to the bowl. Mix the ingredients again until well combined.
  3. Cut the jalapeños vertically without cutting all the way through, leaving them attached at the stem so that they can open like a book. Discard all the seeds.
  4. Stuff the jalapeños with the vegetable mixture, ensuring that they are well-filled.
  5. Serve the Ethiopian Stuffed Jalapeños with your favorite Ethiopian wot (stew) or as a flavorful side dish to spice up any meal.
