|salsa ingredients | photo: webaware|
One of the great things about salsa is the way the flavors can be combined to make a condiment to accompany just about any dish. Fruit flavors, such as peach, pineapple, mango, and many more. The heat can be adjusted depending on how many chilis you do (or don't) use.
Don't just serve it with chips, depending on the flavor profile you can pair salsa with many different foods:
- on top of baked potatoes
- mixed with brown rice and beans
- as a salad dressing
- on top of meatloaf
- with scrambled eggs in a taquito
- with baked chicken
- in a TexMex lettuce wrap
- poured over cream cheese for a dip
- with baked fish
- use your imagination.....the possibilities are endless
