The Chief's 30 Minute Salsa (Hot)Chief Longwind Of The NorthThis salsa came together in 30 minutes and it's a clear winner. But before you venture into my realm of hot, be forewarned. If you're not used to extremes, this stuff can make you cry. To me, and those who have braved it from last Sunday's taco dinner, it's just plain tasty stuff. In fact 3 out of the 5 who ate it stated that it's the best they've eaten, ever, and it's so easy to make. Here's how you do it.
4 dried buk jalokia peppers (Ghost Peppers)
4 dried guajillo peppers
6 dried cayenne peppers
1/4 cup diced green peppers (very rough, chunky cut)
1 medium sized yellow onion, roughly diced
3 tbs. freshly minced cilantro
19 oz, can whole tomatoes, roughly cubed.
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Everything needs to be chunky. Place the dried peppers into your blender and turn into powder. Place all ingredients into a pot and cook over medium heat until the onion and green peppers are half cooked, but with a bit of crunch left.
The amazing flavor comes from the ghost peppers and cilantro. There is no vinegar to hide the other great flavors. If you can stand the heat, you will enjoy this salsa.
Hint: It clears the sinuses when you've got a cold. Don't sneeze with this in your gullet or mouth. It really shouldn't go up your nose. It would be painful. And don't let it go down the wrong hole. This also would lead to distress.
