  1. I loved the idea of the fresh cilantro and lime. I also think the house seasoning was a nice touch. Unfortunately I couldn't get much of the taste, as it was so hot my mouth was on fire (and I like things HOT). What flavor I could taste was great. I will pay more attention to the cook's note next time, and cut the amount of pepper and/or leave out the seeds.
  2. This was such a refreshing wonderful, spicy, savory salsa. I followed this exactly except for adding 1 fresh habenaro, and also adding the suggested 1 jalapeno. The banana pepper, lime, and cilantro was absolutely perfect here. I did also however; leave in seeds, because we like spicy salsa. I can't say enough about this salsa, and can hardly wait until I pick my own peppers next summer, because I will be using this recipe. The house seasoning also was perfect as the salt really brought all the tastes right to the top. Thank you so much, Kara, will make quite often!
