Seriously Hot Salsa

By Brian @WineInMyGlass

Mrs. Renfro's Ghost Pepper SalsaI was at Cub Foods today, and I just had to buy this salsa when I saw it. It is Mrs. Renfro’s Ghost Pepper Salsa. If you’re not familiar with the Ghost Pepper, aka Ghost Chile, Bhut Jolokia, or Naja Jolokia, this is one of the hottest peppers in the world, and it is over 100 times hotter than a Jalapeño pepper.

The salsa smells really good, but it’s really spicy. This probably isn’t something you’ll want to use for dipping chips unless you can really handle the heat. However, the flavor is very good, and it is a great addition to beef tacos. Just be careful with how much you use. (This is coming from someone who thinks Tabasco sauce is fairly mild.)

This is probably the hottest salsa you’ll find in most grocery stores, so if you crave the heat, you should definitely try this one! If habanero salsas aren’t hot enough for you, maybe this will be.
