Unfortunately I don't like Salsa at all.

I want my salsa very hot, hot! I love it on hot dogs, in beans and in chili beans.

In place of the green chilies I added 1 jalapeno, 1 habanero and 2 fresh serrano peppers. The heat level was great and the different flavors from the peppers really kicked up this recipe!

We like really hot salsa at our house. I add at least three or four jalapeno peppers to each batch. Sometimes this is still not spicy enough for my husband, and he adds more hot sauce. There is nothing like fresh salsa. Adding extra cilantro just before serving is a must.

Medium Hot Salsa for me
