Habanero Salsa

If you’re a fan of spicy, then you’ll love this habanero salsa! It’s made with fresh ingredients, so it’s got that refreshing salsa flavor with a big kick.

TIP: If you like the flavor, but the heat, remove the seeds from the habaneros. You can also decrease the number of habaneros and increase the carrots.


5-6 habanero peppers, stemmed

2-3 garlic cloves, halved

1/4 cup yellow onion, diced

1/2 cup sliced carrots

1 Tbsp fresh cilantro

3 oz fresh lime juice (1 medium/large lime)

1/2 tsp kosher salt

2-4 oz water (depends on desired consistency)


-In a small skillet (I used cast iron), roast the habanero peppers, onion, carrots, and garlic on medium heat until lightly charred (about 10 mins.)

-After roasting, let cool for 5 mins.

-In a food processor, add roasted ingredients, cilantro, lime juice, and salt.

-Process until incorporated.

-Add 2 oz of water, and process again until consistency is smooth.

-Continue adding water 1 oz at a time until desired consistency/thickness.

-Taste test, and add more of any ingredient desired.

-You can serve immediately, but I highly recommend letting it refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours first.
