We like things HOT! HOT!HOT! at our house--we grew 23 different pepper plants this year, so yeah--a little spice is normal around here.
This delicious sweet-hot flavor combo will have you coming back for more. This salsa is great with tortilla chips, or with enchiladas, or on top of burritos. If you don't like Habanero hot, Jalapenos work too! Enjoy!
Habanero Pineapple Salsa Fresco
1 cup pineapple, chopped (fresh or canned works)
1-2 Habanero peppers (USE GLOVES WHEN CHOPPING AND SEEDING PEPPERS)
3 green onions, diced
1 green pepper
4 med. tomatoes, cored and halved
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
Not only is this salsa delish--it's easy too!
If you have a food processor throw everything in and pulse it to desired consistency--pulse only 3-5 seconds at a time so it doesn't go to liquid. I haven't tried this in a blender, but that would likely work too.
If you don't have a food processor, you can hand dice the ingredients and mix them together in a bowl.This produces a lovely chunky salsa.
If you like a slightly chunky consistency blend half the amount of each ingredient in a food processor or blender, and chop the other half, combining in a bowl.
The best part is that most of the ingredients were super fresh from my garden--which I think makes the flavor even better!
