This salsa is really easy to make and looks really impressive!
I actually have my uncle to thank for this recipe where he served it at a family Christmas party, I’ve been recreating it ever since!
It goes great with tacos, fajitas or even just plain old tortilla crisps. The pictures don’t contain cucumber as my boyfriend is allergic but it adds a lovely cooling effect. Sweetcorn is also a great addition which I put in after these pictures.
This keeps in the fridge for a couple of days and is also great sprinkled over salads.
Easy hot pepper salsa
1 pepper – any colour
1/4 medium red onion
8-10 cherry tomatoes or 4 regular tomatoes
3 inch section of cucumber (optional)
2 tablespoons of sweetcorn (optional)
1/3 fresh red or green chilli
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
Chop all the ingredients very finely – as small as you can. Add the seeds of the chilli to taste – the more you add the spicier it will be.
Combine everything in a bowl with the olive oil and salt and pepper. Keep covered in the fridge until needed!
