How do you feel about habaneros? Really, spicy food in general? If you’re reading this blog, I’m assuming you have a bit of a tolerance and might even possibly enjoy a little belly warming heat every so often. Fiery habanero salsa is the way to go.
On a scale of 1 to burn your face off this salsa is around a nose hair singe—it be spicy. Suffice it to say, if you are sensitive, this may not be a recipe for you but I do think no human should go thorough life and most especially a bitterly cold winter without something POW!! Knock your socks off, I mean let’s live a little.
I’ve been hearing rumors that there is a sporting event coming up. Something about a Souper Bowl or is it Super Bowl? Either way it sounds like a speed eating contest for the infirm. I’m not going to try to pretend I know anything about it, but if you plan on watching and gathering with friends, this Fiery Habanero Salsa might be just the way to spice up the partaaay!Print
