Plumango Falling Brick Salsa

Big ups to Ryan O’Toole for this great salsa recipe! This salsa turned out to be quite amazing and it is painfully hot. It starts off with a very sweet, almost tangy flavor and then hits you like a falling brick with a blast of fiery heat.

Plumango Falling Brick Salsa

5 Plums (2 peeled)
1 Mango (peeled)
1 Cucumber
1 Red Onion
8 Jalapeno Peppers
1 Hot Hatch Pepper
1 Green Bell Pepper
1 Orange Bell Pepper
2 Habanero Peppers (1 red and 1 yellow)
1/8 Cup Chives
1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Cilantro
4 TBSP Sontava! Habanero XXX Hot Sauce
4 TBSP Coyote Cocina Tequila Habanero Grill Sauce
2 TBSP Sugar
2 TSP Salt
1 TSP Minced Ginger Root
2 Minced Garlic cloves

Just throw the sliced cucumber, peppers, onion, chives, garlic, ginger root, and cilantro into a large food processor and blast it into a chunky goop, then pour into a large container. Cut the pits out of the plum and mango and remove skins. Place the meat of the fruit into the food processor with the rest of the ingredients and lightly chop until chunky. Pour into the large container and mix well. Refrigerate for 1-2 days, occasionally stirring to let the ingredients marinate, and serve.

If you’re afraid that it will be too hot, remove the Hatch pepper and one of the Habanero peppers. The recipe could probably also do without the two hot sauces and still taste great. If you have a mild chipotle or favorite barbeque sauce, you could use it instead of the Coyote Cocina Tequila Habanero Grill Sauce.
