Ingredients Needed For Zippy Salsa:

6 Habanero peppers
10 Jalapeño peppers
6 Cayenne peppers
8 Salsa Mucho peppers or Poblanos
1 each large green, red and yellow bell pepper
garlic to taste
small bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped or torn into 1 inch pieces
six scallions, green tops and all, chopped into 1 inch pieces
Do not add oil, or vinegar to the recipe. You want it to remain pretty dry.

Directions For Making Zippy Salsa:
Be sure to wear rubber gloves when preparing this recipe, and no matter what you do, don't rub your eyes.
Place all the ingredients into a food processor with just the bottom blade in it. If you use the top blade the ingredients tend to puree.
Pulse the processor just until the ingredients are about the size of a kernel of corn.
Place in plastic zip-loc bags and freeze.
This is great when you are making spaghetti sauce. Just break off a frozen piece and drop it in the sauce. It is also great on hero sandwiches

Got a quick and easy salsa recipe - not especially hot but you could change the amount of Rotel and tomatoes to pick it up some -

1 can RoTel tomatoes and chili peppers (choose the “heat” you want)
1 small can Green Chilies (Chopped)
1 lg can whole tomatoes

Put above ingredients in blender. Add

1 to 2 tsp. garlic powder
½ to 1 tsp.Cilantro
1 to tsp. salt

Blend on pulse setting, just until everything mixes – too much blending ruins the texture.

Adjust garlic powder and salt to personal preference.

For those who live around here where you're lucky to get a choice of 2 colors of onions on the shelf, let alone whole peppers - Go to Chuck's. Plop a $2 bottle (Enough to cause clawmarks on the bathroom walls for 6 months!) of Mezzetta California Habanero Sauce in the cart. Return and sprinkle no more than 6 drops on that boring plate of whatever. Better yet, ask whoever's not in the can ......... :) Did you know pepper juices don't bother the birds? Probly cuz they don't wear contacts.
