Why I Love This Recipe

Okay so my dad is a pepper garden fanatic and this year he bought more plants than his garden could fit. He had a few left over and gave them to me to start my own pepper garden.

I've never planted a thing in my life, at least not that I could remember anyway and was nervous that I would kill the plants as I dont have a green thumb. Surprisingly the plants came out great and I saw some banana peppers. I felt like making salsa but had recently ran out of tomatoes so decided I'd play around with the banana peppers and see what would come out of it. To my surprise, something I will definately be preparing once I see more peppers in my garden :o)

Ingredients You'll Need

About 10 banana peppers
1 lime
1/2 medium onion finely chopped
about 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
about 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or to taste
about 2-3 oregano leaves



-slightly grill the banana peppers until you can see the skin is starting to separate from the pepper.

-put the peppers in a food processor (or blender) and mix until it is chopped up into smaller pieces.

-Add the chopped onion.

-Squeeze the lime juice into the peppers.

-Add the salt, garlic, and crushed oregano leaves to peppers.

-mix again until peppers are chopped into tinier pieces but not into a liquid blend.


I especially like this with steak tacos!
