Why would anyone make this salsa, salsa

A friend brought me a bunch of hot peppers she grew, originally I was gonna put them in chili, but it’s too hot to have the stove on that long. So I made salsa instead. Feel free to sub in your own chilis to preference. More than anything I made this to see what would happen if I put 2 Ghost, 1 Scorpion, 1 white habanero, 1 jalapeno and 1 thai with seeds all in a single dish. YMMV depending on your pepper choices.

The Story of The Spiciest Salsa in the World

The brothers, Moses and Javier, were born with a rare genetic mutation and were unable to speak or taste. Their family ran the hottest restaurant in their town, which was the only one in the whole world that served salsa. If they couldn’t make the spiciest salsa in the world then their bus would explode because of their strange genetic mutation.

You see, when the two brothers were born without tongues, their family, Mexican-Americans and immigrants running the hottest restaurant in town, had to do something. So they installed a bus that would explode if they didn’t make the spiciest salsa in the world.

Moses came up with the idea that they should find someone who has been able to make really spicy salsa before, so they could learn how to make it themselves. They thought finding such people would be hard until they met Jorge at his father’s salsa company and they found out he had been able to make really spicy salsa!

The brothers would fly the spiciest peppers from around the world and pack them. But it was always too spicy for them to eat alone – so they sold it to their customers until they ran out at night.
