I eat salsa just about every day with my eggs, and often for dinner as well in taco bowls and burritos. But salsas that you can buy at the store can’t come close to the deliciousness of homemade salsa.
When I started growing puma peppers at home, I knew I needed to develop a salsa using these hot peppers. Clocking in at 300,000 – 400,000 SHU, they are even spicier than habaneros, so I was a bit scared to try them at first. But they have a delicious flavor profile, and this salsa can be adjusted in quantity so that it is just as spicy as you like.
This salsa goes great with scrambled eggs, chips, and burritos. It can also be used to marinate chicken or pork.
