Homemade Salsa

20150502_133535Continuing our awesome Cinco de Mayo party. It’s a very tasty party!  Ole! 

I actually made the salsa first. Letting it have time to mingle in the fridge.

We went shopping for habanero. One of the top hottest peppers, which is what we usually eat. Unfortunately the store was out.  BOO! So I picked up jalapeno and finger hots.  Both are very light in the capsaicin; that is the actual heat in the peppers.

If you prefer no heat, milder flavour, simply cut out the seeds and pith.  That is where the capsaicin is.

Serve immediately or store in fridge to mingle. If you prefer a saucier style of salsa simply blend with a mixer or immersion blender until it’s the consistency you like.
