Manzano Salsa

kept byrollinsm

I was first introduced to the manzano pepper by a nice gentleman in Prescott, Arizona during a day trip. I can never pass up a farmer’s stall. When I saw these, he explained they were peppers. He gave me his family recipe in a mix of English and Spanish. That was almost 15 years ago, so when Jason found these for me in a Hispanic market I was thrilled! They can be similar in heat profile to a habanero, so use some caution when you are eating these. This is a simple salsa preparation. If you can’t find manzano peppers, try habaneros or jalapeños.


6 manzano peppers
1 c cilantro
1 ½ tbsp lemon zest
1/3 c lemon juice
1 tsp salt
