Very easy recipe to have such a wonderfull flavor. It was a great way to use up all the peppers in my garden.My family has used it on everything. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Definitely a prize winner! I couldn't find red chili peppers - instead I chopped up a combination of red bell peppers & Hot Portuguese Red Peppers from our garden - and equalled the volume of green chili peppers. For an easy appetizer, I spread a little light cream cheese on a cracker & topped with some relish. Thanx Sharon!

Great relish, and easy to make. My peppers this year (Hot Banana, Cow Horn, Jalapeño) were not as hot as previous years and I wanted the relish to be hot, so I did not remove the seeds. Success! It's a great relish and it's got the kick I wanted it to have. Also the recipe tells you to use X number peppers and 6 - 8 pounds of onions. Since I was not sure of the size of the peppers used in the recipe and how they might compare to mine, I pretty much used a equal amount of onions and peppers which worked very well. Thanks for sharing!
