Ghost Pepper Salsa Recipe

Our pepper lovers and chili heads are going to love this one.  There have been many requests for a spicy hot Ghost Pepper Salsa recipe that you can make easily at home. At Insane Chicken we carry a large range of hot sauces made with the Bhut Jolokia Pepper that you can use in a salsa if you do not have access to the pepper itself.

For those of you that dare to eat a salsa made with the Hottest pepper in the world, let’s give it a try!  * This salsa packs a LOT of heat so if you don’t like hot & spicy salsas, this recipe isn’t for you.* Also you MUST wear gloves and eye protection when working with this pepper for protection of your skin.  This pepper juice will burn.

Ghost Pepper Salsa Recipe

6 large tomatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 large ghost pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons tomato sauce (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water

Place all ingredients into a large saucepan and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes stirring often so that it doesn’t stick to the pan. If needed…you can add more water if sticking becomes an issue. Turn off burner and let sit for 5  minutes. Pour mixture into a blender and process on medium speed for 1-2 minutes for chunky-style salsa and 3-4 minutes for a smoother salsa. If you like salsa with a lot of “heat” use 2 large ghost peppers instead of one.

* This salsa is great as a condiment to go along with any Mexican dish or if you dare…try it with your favorite brand of Tortilla chips.
