Love chips and salsa? Why not try banana pepper salsa? Here's how to make it. (Or simply add some chopped banana peppers to your favorite salsa recipe.) Omit the jalapeño to adapt the recipe for children or others who don't like spicy heat.
2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
4 banana peppers, chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1 jalapeño or Serrano pepper, very thinly sliced (optional)
1 garlic clove, minced or grated on a rasp grater
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of two limes
Salt to taste
Combine the ingredients together; taste and adjust for salt. Serve immediately or within a day.
