Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! My fiancee thought I should have ordered a ghost chili pepper online and use that instead of using a serrano pepper to make this salsa. We were watching you tube videos last night of people eating those things and saw one where a guy had put a ghost chili pepper on his girlfriend’s pizza and she got so pissed. I would have too,  if my boyfriend did that to me. What an evil prank to play on someone, and I really don’t want to be putting people’s mouths on fire at work. :)

There was a base recipe I used for this, that I found at Everyday food and thought at first that it was kind of bland. Then, I started throwing things in there like more peppers and more cilantro. It actually helped to cook it too, because the original recipe was a no cook salsa.

One thing, that I like about salsa is that there’s hardly any fat and you can put it on top of almost anything. :)
