Ghost Pepper Inferno Salsa

Ghost pepper inferno salsa

This recipe is inspired by the availability of ghost peppers at my local grocer. Be CAREFUL when handling these little pods of fire! Their spiciness and intensity vary, so does their size. I used 4 peppers the size of blueberries, but the ones you get can be the size of jalapenos! Go by weight, as this recipe specifies only 4 grams of ghost pepper. When in doubt, take all precautions - wear gloves, use tweezers, add a little bit at a time, etc. With the right balance of spiciness, this salsa turned out to be super delicious!


All Ingredients

5 cloves (17g) garlic

  1. Preheat the oven for high broil. 1 minute
