A fragrant sauté of jalapeños and onion is delicious in the taquitos, but it would also take a cheeseburger in a whole new direction.
large white onion
large fresh jalapeños (at least 3 inches long)
extra-virgin olive oil
Cut onion into 1/2-inch-thick rounds, then separate into rings.
Make 6 long cuts in each chile from tip to 1/4 inch from stem.
Cook onion in oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add chiles and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion and chiles are tender, 15 to 17 minutes. Season with salt.
Jalapeño and onion sauté can be made 1 day ahead and chilled. Reheat before serving.
