This Spicy Apple Salsa is both Tart & Spicy at the same time! Especially good on Fish Tacos but just as good with Tortilla Chips.
This Spicy Apple Salsa is great on chicken, fish, tacos or served with tortilla chips. I’m calling it a salsa but it’s actually more of a Pico de Gallo since it’s chunky. Maybe next time I will put it in a blender and puree it more like a salsa. I wonder how that would turn out?
Anyways, don’t let the fact that this salsa has apples in it fool you. It is hot. As in spicy hot. And I mean hot. Just like most recipes that use Chilies, you can control the heat buy modifying the number of chilies you use. The recipe as written below on the recipe card is hot…. You’ve been warned!
Am I the only one that likes to look up the origins of some of these recipes? Check out this interesting article about the history of Salsa.
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.
