This recipe is delicious, but only make this if you’ve added peppers back into your diet and you did not have a problem with them. So many articles tell those with arthritis to shy away from night shade vegetables. When it comes down to it, it really depends on YOUR BODY! That’s why elimination diets are so important – it lets you know how certain foods affect you.
My stomach used to have a hard time with spicy foods. No me gusta. BUT! Since I did the elimination diet, my stomach not only wants spicy foods, but is craving it! I believe this is due to my stomach being cold (which I’ll get into in a later post), but it’s a big change of pace. When I would go to a thai restaurant I would always order my food at a 0 or 1 spice level (on a 1-10 scale). Now, I’m like at a 5 . . . I’m not going overboard ok?! haha
I was at the grocery store the other day and there were local farm’s banana peppers. They looked soooooo good. I started immediately placing some in a bag. As I was picking them up I was thinking to myself ‘I have no idea what I’m going to do with these, but man, they look good!’ Two-seconds later a woman came up to me and asked me what I was going to do with the peppers! Haha!!! I told her I was literally just asking myself the same question!
Any-who, this is the recipe I ended up concocting with the delicious banana peppers and I very much enjoyed them. That week I was luck enough to get tomatillos and green tomatoes in my CSA box. I’ve bought tomatillo salsa or canned tomatillo sauce before, but I’ve never in my life bought a tomatillo.(I know, I must live a sheltered life) I looked online and saw various ways to make tomatillo salsa. I took a look at what I had in the fridge and this is what I came up with! It is an extremely mild salsa since I did not put any spice in it, but the banana peppers were especially spicy so the mild verde sauce was much appreciate!
