Salsa That Satisfies
Now comes the big question: Sweet or hot peppers? Mild salsa calls for sweet peppers, such as 'Sweet Banana.' For a little smoky flavor, grill the peppers before adding them to salsa. Spicier versions typically include jalapeño, serrano, or habanero (shown here), but you can also play around with Thai peppers and other sizzling types. Though traditionalists may shudder, adding a bit of brown sugar lets gringo tastebuds have their hot salsa and eat it too.
