Salsa de Eppinette: A Three-Pepper Inferno Recipe

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 habanero pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 serrano pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 small carrot
  • 2/3 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 large tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Place the stewed tomatoes, garlic, minced habanero pepper, minced jalapeno pepper, minced serrano pepper, and half of the diced onion into a food processor. Process until the mixture has been pureed.
  2. Peel the carrot, then use the vegetable peeler to cut the carrot into thin shavings. Roughly chop the shaved carrot along with the cilantro leaves. Place the carrot, cilantro, diced canned tomatoes, chopped fresh tomato, green onions, lime juice, vinegar, salt, and black pepper into the food processor. Pulse until the salsa reaches your desired consistency.
  3. For best results, pour into jars and let sit in refrigerator for 2 to 3 days, but feel free to indulge immediately.
