Spice Up Your Life with Our Tips

At Harmony Springs Farm, we believe that using the right peppers can take your salsa to the next level. Here's our tips for making salsa that will impress your friends and intimidate your enemies.


1. When using our superhot peppers in salsa, keep in mind that the level of heat can range from mild to extremely hot. For those who love the heat, we recommend adding more superhots to our recipes, while those who prefer a milder taste should add fewer.  We've done 2 to 8 superhots per quart. 2 is hot enough for most, 8 is too hot for most, We've split batches in half and added extra peppers to the second half for hot and extreme hot. (don't forget to label them differently.)

2. Substitute Red Savina Habanero for regular Habanero to kick up the heat while keeping the Habanero flavor.  This pepper was the original Guinness world's hottest (legit heat).

3. We suggest the Butch T Scorpion for superhot maximum heat in salsa if you want the extreme heat.  The flavor blends well with the other ingredients and the burn is long clean heat that doesn't over power the salsa flavors.


4. If you enjoy the smoky flavor of chipotle, try cold smoking some of our peppers. Just be sure not to exceed smoking 50% of the peppers, unless you enjoy the taste of Lucky Strikes in your salsa!

5. For a truly unique and flavorful twist to your favorite salsa, try substituting mild peppers with Sugar Rush Stripy. You won't be disappointed!


At Harmony Springs Farm, we want our customers to enjoy our delicious hot pepper products safely. It is important to always use caution when handling superhots. To ensure your safety, we recommend using disposable gloves when handling hot peppers, and keeping your hands away from your eyes. Before using the restroom, be sure to wash your hands well, as the heat from our peppers can cause discomfort. Although the heat is great in your dishes, it's not good in your drawers!
