Habanero Chile-Hot, Hot, Hot Salsa

This recipe is from my Aunt Francis, she is a true Mexican. This recipe will certainly cure what ails you! And it's delicious too ;)

1 lb. habanero chiles-remove top stem
3 cloves of garlic
Cilantro- about 1/4 of standard bunch or more if you like(remove stems)
Salt to taste

IMPORTANT: open windows and ventilate kitchen when boiling chilies. Don't touch eyes or face with your hands if you have touched the chile. Wash hands well.

Place chiles in a pan, cover with water and boil until chiles and skin are soft. Maybe 1 hr on medium heat. When chiles are done allow to cool.

Place chiles, garlic and cilantro in blender and run until just about liquified. Add water from chiles to help blend. Place in glass jar and refrigerate.

Use on anything you want to spice up. Eggs, enchiladas, chile verde etc.

If the chile is too hot add diced tomatoes to blender to help cut down and reduce the heat.

Chile lasts longer without the tomato.

Good luck.
