Renée's Thermonuclear Salsa

4 roasted jalanepenos gutted & chopped OR 7-8 crumbled pequin or tepin chilis
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
2 - 28 oz cans diced tomatoes
3 7oz cans chopped green chilis
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1 can chipolte peppers
cilantro to taste
garlic salt to taste
liquid smoke to taste
3 tablespoons vinegar
tomato sauce to taste if needed to cut the heat

If using pequin or tepin chilis - crumble them in blender and put in bowl. If using the jalepenos, smoke, peel, gut, and chop.

Put all tomato products into large bowl. Add jalepenos or pequin/tepin crumbles. Add the rest of the ingredients to taste. Let sit to blend. It will get hotter as the day goes on. If your nose runs, you are on the right track. Not bad for a Québecois from Wisconsin.

Fried Zucchinni

I really like this. If you need to use Zucchini and your kids will eat anything dipped in Ranch dressing you can try it.
Slice the zucchini in thin slices. Sometimes I peel it but you don't have to.
Beat two eggs with a fork.
Mix 1/2 cup flour-some salt and pepper.

Put the zucchini in the egg, then the flour mixture then in hot oil. Turn in over to cook on each side and drain on paper towel.

It's yummy and has some food value inside the fried outside.

Enjoy. Mom
