  • 1 to 2 ghost peppers 1 insane heat, 2 "the devil's side", diced
  • 6 tomatoes peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large pan, combine all ingredients and simmer over low heat for approximately 5 minutes. Stir often and add more water if needed to keep ingredients from sticking.
  • Turn the heat off and leave the pan over the burner for approximately 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally to keep sticking from occurring.
  • Transfer the mix to a food processor or blender and process until you reach the salsa consistency you prefer (less processing for chunky, more processing for smooth).
  • Serve with fair warning to all.



Ghost peppers are super-hot chilies that can cause significant chili burn when handled improperly. Gloves, a kitchen mask, and goggles are recommended for handling.
