Refrigerator spicy dilly beans recipe

If you want to add a little spice to your dilly beans, all you have to do is add some hot peppers. 

You can use jalapenos, habaneros, or whatever kind of peppers you have on hand or enjoy eating. Just take your knife and poke a hole through the whole washed pepper. Stab it all the way through so the juice can permeate it from both sides. And push it down into the jar with the other ingredients.

It will spice the liquid and everything in it. If you want a lot of spice, add several peppers and if you want a little, just add one.
