A colorful salsa with an extra spicy kick.

Bell peppers are the multi-hued star of this simple salsa. But it’s the kick provided by jalapeño or serrano peppers that’ll have you coming back for more. It’s very easy to make, too, so if you’re tight on time before the party or big game, whipping up a spicy rainbow salsa can save the day with some colorful culinary style.
