habanero salsa

This is one of my favorite salsas.

I learned how to make it from some old friends of my husbands.

It’s very easy to make and goes perfectly with many of your favorite Mexican dishes.

My husband’s old friends used to make it during the summer time to go with carne asada.

And oh my gosh was it amazing. Those were really fun times!

I can’t wait till it gets warm again, I’m really craving me some carne asada!

The good thing about this salsa is that you can alter the spice level depending on how many habanero peppers you add.

Habanero peppers are orange colored and are extremely hot. Even hotter than jalapenos!

Sometimes I’m able to find the habanero peppers at my local grocery.

If you can’t find them you can always go to a Mexican grocery if you have one close by. I can always find them there.
