I cannot believe you have just discovered salsa! Where you been chile?

You can put it on virtually anythig... tortilla chips of course, nachos, eggs of all kinds, all this is "standard". In stews, pot roasts, anything savory. For fish, add some mango (unless you have some mango salsa already... and also add some fresh jalapeno and lime juice.
Make a salad- rice, lettuce, black beans, salsa, orange vinegarette, chips on the side.
There are no rules- be creative, the worst that can happen is that you don't like it- throw it out and try it another way..

Everyone else has already stated the many ways to use salsa with one exception that I haven't tried yet. Someone's teenagers liked to top cottage cheese with it for a quick snack. I guess it couldn't be that much different from the commercial "garden" flavor cottage cheese they used to sell, which had minced scallion, carrot, & bell pepper in it.

We have a lady here who uses it as her salad dressing...says it's a lot less calories. I used to think yuck, until I thought about Taco Salads. So crumble a little hamburger on some lettuce, add some cheese, beans, (anything else you want) add the salsa and enjoy!

Salsa is excellent on many many things, breakfast foods and chicken are at the top of my list. If you decide to buy a cutting board and knife fresh salsa is simple to make as well. Recently I have been making fruit salsa for chicken that I enjoy very much and have eaten it on ice cream also.

The measurements below are not exact and you can pretty much use any fresh fruits in it.

Fruit Salsa:

1 nectarine
1 plum
1/4 plus cup of blue berries
cantaloupe maybe a 1/2 cup
4 strawberries
1 or more tablespoons orange marmalade
1/2 tablespoon Tabasco or favorite hot sauce

Cut up the fruit, small dice. Place the hot sauce and marmalade in a small bowl and slightly heat to help melt the marmalade and mix together.

Pour hot sauced marmalade over fruit and gently toss, serve over chicken.

Enjoy!

Pretty much goes great with almost any protein I can think of. Mahi, Snapper, Halibut, Mussels, clams, fried calamari, Pork,chicken, Skirt steak, turkey, etc...Very versatile topper.


You should try experimenting by making your own,the possibilities are endless.
