A superb orange and onion flavored salsa that is not only great with chips but awesome with tacos, fish and chicken.
In search of the perfect Taco topping…
I probably eat more tacos than anything else. Not sure if it’s because I live in Southern California or just because they are so good. There are so many different kinds of tacos and as many toppings to choose from. I recently made some shredded chicken that I used to make Tacos. I wanted something a little different for a topping, so I decided to make this Orange Onion Salsa with Anaheim Chili Peppers.
What does this Orange Onion Salsa with Anaheim Chili Peppers it taste like?
Looking at the list of ingredients you may be asking yourself what this salsa tastes like. Well right off the bat you taste the oranges. Not overpowering but you can tell this is the focus of this salsa. The onion, Anaheim Chili and the Ground Cumin gives the salsa a bit of a kick. Not super spicy like my other spicy salsa recipes though. This salsa turned out to be so good that next time I will use it as a topping with my Tilapia.
Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
