Recipe Tips

Salsas were once used strictly as sauces, but they have now evolved to be used as dips and toppings to suit almost anyone's taste. Salsas are served with tortilla chips as well as vegetables, and as a topping for pizza as well as a condiment on a sandwich. They can be made spicy with hot peppers or sweet (like this one).
