Eärgon salsa is an easy-to-make, low sodium hot sauce that nicely complements fresh vegetables like broccoli, carrots, and celery. Easy variations using hotter peppers such as seranos and habaneros are given below.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Slice peppers crosswise to form small rings, and put in a small container.
  2. Add garlic, vinegar, and tomato paste.
  3. Stir and serve.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • 4 seranno peppers can be substituted for the 4 jalapeños for a spicier sauce.
  • To try the habanero version, use 2 finely-chopped habanero peppers and increase tomato paste from 12 oz to 18 oz. Be careful.
  • This recipe is easy to customize. Some options include adding spinach, cilantro, black pepper, and chopped onions.
  • The peppers, vinegar, and garlic can be combined beforehand and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.
  • Can be easily stored in a closed container in refrigerator for a week or ten days.

This salsa is a good source of vitamins and minerals. One serving provides 42% of a day's recommended Vitamin C, 28% of Vitamin A, 18% of Vitamin E, 14% of pyridoxine, 13% of niacin and vitamin K. In terms of minerals, it provides 25% of a day's potassium, 17% of manganese, 16% of copper, and 14% of iron. Additionally, one serving also has 4 grams of both dietary fiber and protein.

Warnings[edit | edit source]

  • Be very careful not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth after chopping or handling the chili peppers—the pain can be intense. Wash your hands thoroughly after handling.
