Oh my GOSH, the house smells so good nobody can even sleep! I mixed up a big batch of Spicy Pineapple Salsa a few hours ago, and the aroma is lingering. . . .

This spicy, fruity salsa is so versatile! It can be used as a salsa dip, with veggies, chips, whatever you and your family like to eat with salsa. It can also be used with various grilled meats, which makes it the perfect accompaniment for your grilled steaks, pork, chicken, etc. Spoon some of this pineapple salsa over your grilled meats and you’ve got a feast.

Fresh pineapples are at a good price right now, too. Our local Kroger’s had really nice ones for 99 cents each!

Texas Pepper Jelliy’s Spicy Pineapple Salsa is also nutritious – it’s full of good fresh fruit and vegetables. Don’t tell the kids, though.

My husband likes the pineapple to be chunky. I prefer it to be diced finer, since it’s salsa we’re discussing. Cater to your own family here.

Ingredients:

2 cups diced pineapple (fresh is best)
1/2 cup Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly
1/2 cup diced onion (I use red for the color)
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 lime or lemon, juiced (I’ve used both; my family prefers lime; I prefer lemon. Your call!)
Dash Kosher salt

What to do:

Throw everything into a big mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. It will be juicy; this is good.

Cover and refrigerate overnight. Hire a guard for your refrigerator; people have been known to sneak out of bed in the middle of the night to sample Spicy Pineapple Salsa – you know, just to make sure it’s okay.

This salsa is like candy. Or maybe crack. It’s that good.
