Salsa, Served Hot

On Sunday, 5 and I visited Grandma Dee. In her garden, 2 volunteer chili pepper plants have popped up. Since she didn't plant them, we have no idea exactly what they are. I did a little research but I don't know for sure.

They're not very big but hotter than a Serrano. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Look at these gorgeous tomatoes from Grandma Dee's garden. There's really nothing like them. Even at the Farmer's Market.

Neighbor Wife came over with her food processor and we decided to make Roasted Salsa.
Tomatoes, Onion, Garlic, Mystery Chili Peppers drizzled with olive oil, salt and pepper in a 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Lovely little hotties.

Fresh out of the oven, I popped all of the veggies into the Food Processor with some fresh lime juice. I only put in 3 little peppers and it was plenty spicy. Grandma Dee also gave me some clippings from her cilantro plant. Tammy explained that the little seeds are a spice called Coriander. I used all of it, including the flowers from the plant. From my little herb garden, I used parsley, oregano and chives.

This is absolutely the best salsa I've ever had. We ate it while it was still hot.
In fact Neighbor Wife just called and asked if we can make more. Now. She's craving it.



  1. Is it possible to crave something you've never eaten before? Because now I am.

  2. All the beautiful red in the photos! Wow.

    I love salsa, but I spent a bunch of money and tried to make it once, and it was TERRIBLE. I had to throw the damn stuff away.



  3. They look like Thai Bird chiles maybe?
