There are major health concerns when re-using that juice, adding more peppers or anything else to that juice will mess up the acid and salt level that keeps the food safe in the first place. You basically will be diluting the vinegar and salt content. One thing you can do is put a few hard-boiled eggs that have been peeled, only let them set in there for a couple of days before eating though or else you risk those eggs going bad, keep refrigerated!!!!.
