Question Salsa! How to eat?

Hello everyone
(I hope i posted this is the correct thread)

I'm beginning to discover salsa and i love it! :) I must admit tho, not salsa as in home made, but store bought jarred salsa.
Nonetheless, i was wondering if i could have any serving suggestions?

I usually have it on toast/Lebanese wrap with sour-cream, ham, and basil/rocket. Yes i know, I'm not much of a cook, but i am after all a poor student with a tiny kitchen

So before i get sick of this wonderful stuff can anyone offer me some new ways to enjoy it?

As in mexican-style tomato, onion, pepper salsa? Well goodness, BabyG, you can stir it into milk if it turns you on!

Meaning: try it anywhere and everywhere that it appeals to you! The traditional uses of topping a quesadilla or inside a burrito aren't a law. Try it with eggs, shove it in a sandwich (maybe not peanut butter and grape jelly though), put it on pasta ...

One does not get sick of salsa.

You can use it as a topping for grilled chicken or one of my favorites grilled tuna. You can also mix in some black beans with it and even some corn. Mix with some cheese and melt and dip nacho chips in it or corn chips.

I'm sure I'll think of more things to do with it and when I do I will post again!

I have put salsa in a skillet and poached an egg in it before. You can also top a cheese omelet with it.

I love Salsa chicken and salsa fish! Just top chicken breasts or fish fillets (cod) with salsa, cheese and crumbled nachos, than bake in the oven until meat is done and cheese is brown and bubbly. Yummy!

Love salsa on an omelette.

But it works as a topping on a hotdog or hamburger.

Or on a grilled cheese sandwich.

Could incorporate it into a simple vinagrette as a salad dressing and it would go very well, I think, with pork.

Look upon it as a tomato based sauce and go from there.

Run, don't walk to your nearest store and buy a packet of flour tortillas. Take one out and fill it with cheese, or what ever takes your fancy. Warm iy up then add salsa on top.
I was served a smoky, hot salsa with my breakfast eggs in Mexico. It's great with chorizos. Use it to make a Mexican-style Gazpacho: 1 tin tomato juice, 1 tbsp salsa, add a little grated onion, bell pepper and celery. Yum.

Next time you make a pot of chicken vegetable soup, dump in a jar of salsa. You will love it!

To Mex up tomato soup, add some salsa to it. Then serve the soup topped with broken tortilla chips.

I also add salsa to my basic meatloaf mixture and, then, top with more salsa while it cooks. Yummy.
