The important thing to remember with this recipe is to use unsalted peanuts. If you use salted peanuts the salsa may turn out a little too salty. Just like all recipes that use hot peppers, you can adjust the heat by using fewer peppers and not include any of the seeds in the peppers.
Now the most common way of serving salsa is with a side of tortilla chips. But this salsa is so good you can pour it over eggs, fajitas or use it as a dip for tortillas, tacos and as a topping for quesadillas or enchiladas.
