yeah, i think Habaneros are rated a 14/15 on the spiciness scale of hot peppers. They are the hottest pepper so I don't know what would be a 15...
I read that off of a poster with a bunch of peppers so don't hold me to that.

THE WORLD'S HOTTEST PEPPER PODS, the dried Wild Desert Tepín.
The Tepín, AKA, the "Gringo-killer!"
This is several times hotter than the Orange or Red Habaneros of Scotch Bonnets.
Dremann's Hotness Scale for the tiny Wild Desert Tepín=20,000-64,000 with seeds removed, which means one ounce of dried pepper pods will produce a detectable hotness in
20,000-64,000 ounces of salsa!
Heh, I'll pass... 8-o

Very interesting..I was trying to find a pepper scale...I thought habanero might be the hottest I could easily find..but didn't know where serrano fit into the fold. Even one makes it pretty spicy. 3-4 in there gives it a helluva kick. And I typically have a pretty high pain tolerance when it comes to that stuff. But I may have to try it just to see..

That said, anyone make green salsa? Anything different but the tomatoes?

Habenero hotness is ok, maybe just a bit too hot but still pretty solid. I can't stand the "sweet then hot" flavor of them though.

First off, I like to use a couple different hot peppers because they each have different flavors. Definitely de-seed them though. Not only is the seed the hottest part, but it sucks to get them in your teeth. You can avoid "pocket hotness" by this method. Simply use hotter peppers, or more of them. Also, I use lime juice instead of lemon. I think it just sets off the other flavors, especially the cilantro, better. I don't like the idea of the canned diced tomatoes either. If everything else is fresh, why stick in something mushy and tinny tasting? White onions are the best, stay away from the yellow ones. Too sweet. But I do like to throw a little bit of red and yellow bell peppers in for a different flavor and the presentation is nicer.

Sorry Sixx...but the seeds have very little to do with the hotness.

The spice/hotness is embedded in the membrane of the pepper.

For example...have you ever bitten the edge of a pepper? Then bitten the end of it? Which end is hotter? Neither. Its all the same.

SNS. I break salsa down into two cats. The pouring kind and the scooping type. Your recipe looks fine and i think its falls into the scooping cat.

Ill drop a recipe on you guys later.

LOL. Sweet. I look forward to seeing it Undie.

Yeah mine isn't too bad, the initial kick isn't too bad, but it comes back and gets a bit. As for the serrano vs the habenero, I just tend to like the flavor of serrano a bit better...But yeah, I won't pretend it's the asskickingest salsa out there, no way. :-b

Just good and flavorful, with a bit of a kick. Just as it was advertised. :-)

Yours sounds good Sixx...I like the fresh tomato idea a lot, just have never done it that way. From a friends' recipe and I never really tweaked the tomato part... ;-D
