    My Dh said it should be called the dogs bite! Flavorful and HOT! I made the mistake of not wearing gloves though and I am paying for it! Made for ZWT8

    My sister lived in the Yucatan. When she came back to Canada she made it with fresh orange juice and white wine vinegar instead of sweet orange lime. She also does one with sour orange and cabbage tomato that is pretty amazing. Has anyone else tried the cabbage in salsa? Better than you would think!

    I'd say that 4 Habaneros are plenty enough, 6 is a little intense. Overall though I loved this recipe and was very happy to find it after returning from Playa Del Carmen & having it all over the place there.

    I got hooked on xni-pec salsa while traveling in Mexico, and this is spot-on. I couldn't find habaneros, so I used Jamaican hot peppers. They're less spicy than habaneros, but the results were still very hot. I followed Chocolatl's advice and used 2 parts lime juice, 1 part orange juice. I also doubled the onion. I use this as a condiment rather than a dip for chips. I served it with black beans and rice. Thanks for a great recipe!
