Feelin' hot hot ...really hot!

I’ve always loved making home made salsa. Sometimes I make it chunky with large pieces of tomatoes and other times I make it like a puree. The salsa of choice lately has been a non-traditional type with tomatoes, cucumber, chopped garlic, vinegar and cilantro. It is refreshing (thanks to the cucumber) and makes the whole kitchen smell great. I’ve also made it with tomatoes, tobasco sauce and corn. Today in search to make spicy salsa vs. refreshing salsa I sought out the habanero pepper. There was definitely confusion at the supermarket between the chili pepper, jalapeño and habanero pepper.   I bought a small vile of just the habanero seeds which claim to be 50 times hotter than the jalapeño pepper. That’s hot. Really hot. The salsa I made was indeed hot, one tiny drop on the corn chip brought out beads of sweat on my forehead.
