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

Procedure edit

  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

  • 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.
