Pot filled with water, habanero peppers, and tomatoes

After eating some great homemade habanero salsa in Father’s Day weekend I made a goal of the incoming week to learn how to make this. My mom indulged me on the complicated recipe and I fell in love with it after putting it on wraps, eating it with tortilla chips, etc.

This should be a great base to work off of if you want to add some variation due to it’s simplicity. Habanero salsa in blender with wrap. And dog on bottom left.
