Sweet pickle relish on a hot dog? Not for me: I want heat! Essentially a salsa, this relish works on a whole range of casual foods besides franks—nachos, burgers, tacos, you name it. Since this recipe makes a lot, you’ll be able to extend your condiment adventure into next season, slightly perspiring all through the cold months.
A note about chiles: The serranos I’ve been buying lately are fully loaded with heat. If yours aren’t spicy enough for you, use the larger amount.
