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.
It’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.

6 Jalapeños peppers
1 Bell pepper
4 garlic cloves

Boil all the ingredients except the oil.
Once the jalapeños are soft, throw everything in the blender and blend.
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.
