Crazy HOT Salsa

I love spicy-hot salsas, green, red, orange, brown, yellow…I don’t care what color they are, as long as they are HOT.

Since today is Cinco de Mayo and it’s all about eating spicy food. Ok, maybe it’s not.
It’s actually about the Mexican army’s victory over the French forces at the Battle of Puebla, back in 1862. It’s about celebrating with your friends and family.
Cinco de MayoIt’s the perfect excuse to make salsa.

Just to clarify it has never been the celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day as many people believe.

If you are looking to spice up your food try this salsa version. It’s very simple, easy, and absolutely HOT. You could use it with many of the Mexican snacks and dishes made to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Just be aware that it’s crazy HOT.

Here are the ingredients:
You also need 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Boil the chiles, I used six red jalapeños, four cloves of garlic and one bell pepper to intensify the color of the salsa. Just a note, I didn’t remove the seeds. If you want to control the heat, then remove the seeds.

Once the jalapeños are soft, throw everything in the blender.
My preference is to have chunks of chiles, lots of texture. If you like yours smooth then make sure to blend some more.

Next, in a sauce pan, heat the two tablespoons of olive oil. Add the salsa and let if boil for a few minutes.

Then sprinkle the juice of one lime. We are done.

Serve on top of your favorite breakfast.

On your favorite tacos.

Buen provecho!

    After reading this post this morning, my mouth was watering. I love spicy salsas, thanks for the recipe!!!

  10. I never thought to boil the chilis. Great idea, as I love heat, as well. I am going to make today and throw in a yellow scotch bonnet – either dried or frozen and instead of garlic use ramp bulbs!

  11. Oh yum! I love hot salsa, and this one looks delish!

  12. Spicy food is addictive! I need some jalapeños. ;-)

  13. That is beautiful red salsa. Can’t wait to try it.

  14. I don’t think I have ever tried a red jalapeno before. I’ll have to try them out in one of my salsa challenges. Btw, this may be silly to ask but I have been wondering….how do you get the ~ sign on top of your n’s? It’s driving me crazy that I haven’t figured it out. I’m sure it’s something so simple a caveman can do it too :P hehe. What did you have in your eggs? Nopales was my first guess.
