Picante Verde

Tempted by the devil? Willing to try something that'll hurt & get the endorphins rushing? Fondue Voodoo supports your need for self inflicted pain, we'll even give you a recipe to help you along. Remember kids, we're not responsible for your injuries - but feel free to send us the pics.

What you need:
  • Peppers, about 8 in total. A combo of jalapeƱo, serrano & habaneros, go with the level of heat you might like.
  • Garlic, 2 cloves
  • Vinegar, 2 cups. Try 50-50 mixture of rice and white
  • Cilantro, a good handful
  • Salt, about 2 - 4 tsp
The addition of cilantro adds a herb-y freshness that bumps up the flavour. It could be substituted with parsely, chives or any combo of herbs of your choice.

Hot and herb-y.
Take all of the above ingredients and place in a blender and blend on high until you get a good smooth consistency. The cilantro will not completely blend in but should be fairly broken down. Depending on the heat level you may need to thin with more vinegar. Once satisfied with the result strain into bottles. Rather than discarding the pulp I like to reserve and use for marinades etc.

This will keep in the fridge for 2-3 months - ours never last that long.
