“Not having a recipe for salsa (and having peppers that needed to be used), this was my 'making it up as i go' attempt that turned out well. Using a blender makes this super quick and easy to throw together. With the habanero I used, the salsa came out with a bit of a bite! This of course can change depending on your peppers, but if you'd like it tamer, I'm sure a jalapeno could be used instead. The flavour of the garlic is pronounced, so adjust to suit your tastes. The tequila isn't needed, but I like what it adds to the salsa. Goes well with cornmeal pancakes.”
