Ever heard of the country Georgia? No, no, not the state. There is a little country next to Turkey, where my family grew up and one of the staple sauces is called Adjika. There are Mediterranean spices you can by with the same name but the real stuff is a fresh spread like a salsa.

It consists of mostly peppers, these were actually from my garden that I picked right before the frost! My dad's recipe calls for 6 sweet and 6 spicy peppers but this can vary depending on what he has. I used 6 baby sweet peppers and 6 jalapenos but I know sometimes he switches up the jalapenos for other spicy peppers and you can also substitute with 3 bell peppers.

Cut and core all the peppers of your choosing and put them into a food processor on the grate setting.

You will also need a head of garlic and a lot of parsley (other herbs like cilantro can be used as substitute as well).

Mix it all together with a teaspoon of salt and a table spoon of red wine vinegar.

The spicy level will vary each time you make it depending on how spicy the peppers are, this time around it was mild. If you prefer less spice you can always use less jalapenos as well!

It goes especially well on meat like this Chicken, mozzarella sandwich I made on challah bread!
