Low-Sodium Habanero Salsa

Submitted by: EGGY78

Introduction

This is a fairly hot salsa. For people who like things hot but aren't out to prove anything. Makes my nose run a bit, but it's just right to enjoy with tortilla chips, tacos, or burritos.

Has a decent amount of flavor, although it's mostly from the garlic and lime.

Goes great with a low-sodium tortilla chip such as the No-Salt variety of Xochitl Totopos de Maiz. Chips and salsa for 12.3 mg sodium per 1/4 c. serving isn't bad!

Yields about 3 cups.

Ingredients

    2 cans Hunt's No Salt Added Diced Tomatoes
    2 Tbsp Lime Juice
    2/3 c Chopped Onion
    2 Serrano Peppers
    2 Habanero Peppers
    3 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro
    1 tsp Mrs. Dash Original Blend
    4 cloves Garlic
    .5 tsp Ground Black Pepper
    .25 tsp Cayenne Pepper
    .25 tsp Crushed Red Pepper

Directions

Place 1 habanero and 1 serrano pepper (including seeds) in a blender. To that, add 4 cloves garlic, half of the 3 Tbsp Cilantro, dried spices, lime juice, and 1 cup of the diced tomatoes. Blend into as fine a paste as possible.

Chop the remaining parsley and peppers (leaving out the seeds) and add (into a nonreactive bowl) all of the remaining ingredients. Add the pureed mixture from the blender, and stir until well-mixed. Cover and chill for several hours to allow flavors to blend (can be skipped if you're in a hurry)

If it's not hot enough, you can add the seeds from the chopped peppers.

Honestly, I don't know if Mrs. Dash helps at all, so feel free to skip it if you don't have any on-hand :)

If you're not on a low-sodium diet, you could cut a clove or two of garlic and add salt to taste.
