Extra Hot Salsa Recipe

    My family loves salsa and for the men in the family, the hotter the better.  I aim to please so I whipped up a batch of salsa that even made my Marine hubby say "ouch".  I could have made it hotter but I like the salsa to be hot enough but still have a good taste.  Some hot salsas are pure fire and nothing more.    Mine is not that way.

Extra Hot Salsa

     Cut up the jalapeno peppers and the habenero peppers and put the diced pieces into a pot.  Be sure to put the seeds into the pot too.  Cut up the tomatoes and add the tomatoes and the rest of the ingredients to the pot.   Bring it to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes.  As it is simmering, prepare your jars by heating the lids and jars in hot water.  After simmering, put the salsa in the hot jars (filling within 1/2" and wiping rims) and water bath process for 20 minutes. 

     Makes 4 pints.

  1. Hopefully you will get a chance to try out the recipe and love it Julia.

  2. My husband will love this hotter version of salsa! Thank you for sharing on the Art of Home-Making Mondays this week :)

  3. Sounds good. I will have to try this. Our son-in-law makes great salsa too.

  4. I am looking forward to trying this. I like spicy, but not so hot that I can't taste the flavors. This sounds like the perfect medium.
