Spicy Jalapeño Sesame Salsa
My hot and spicy friends, I have something good for you today.
Even if you're not so into the spicy heat, but love fresh flavor? Cut down on the amount of jalapeño here, and add some milder peppers in their place.
I really want everyone to try the deliciousness that is Spicy Jalapeño Sesame Salsa, so - options.
and this really does go on everything - from scrambles to sandwiches to pasta to tacos and burgers to savory oatmeal to hummus to pizza and quinoa bean bowls to... spoons.
We have been adding this to so many dishes, and I make a new batch every few days.
Fresh Salsa Recipe
I am thinking I need to plant one more jalapeño in the garden - we generally have two, and we have plenty of jalapeño into like, late September.
So this year, three jalapeño plants.
Because this salsa is quick and easy and so SO flavorful and I don't think I'm going to want to quit it anytime soon.
If you have five minutes, a knife, and a blender? You are a handful of peppers away from having this salsa yourself. The rest of the short and simple ingredient list is made up of the sort of pantry staples I always have on hand.
Or outside in the garden...
This is jalapeño forward, yes.
Removing the seeds takes away much of the heat of the pepper, leaving all the flavor.
The flavors of jalapeño and sesame play well together, and makes a uniquely new salsa most everyone loves!

This looks SO good! I just planted my garden with loads of peppers and chilis so I may just have the perfect thing to use them for!

This salsa tasted like something we would get from our local Taqueria! The heat starts subtly and builds. At times it was too much for me - which is why I gave it 4 stars. My husband, on the other hand, embraced my challenge to eat spoonfuls of this and gave it a 5 after downing some milk 🙂 We used 10 fresh jalapenos to 4 tomatoes with a medium sized bunch of cilantro. I initially used it to dress taco salads, but we ended up eating the majority of it with tortilla chips (and a healthy dollop of sour cream).
