Salsa Face Off
Like hummus, salsa should be something you make at home frequently and buy at the store only when time is at a premium. There are so many different ways to throw together a salsa, you can probably make one right now with just a few things from your fridge and cabinets. Now, I use the term “salsa” loosely, as there have been many different versions I have tried over the years. Some are smooth and and liquidy, some have little bits of veggies still floating around in a lovely spicy sauce, and other are just straight up veggies mixed together for a delicious combination of flavors. Any way you put it, salsa is super easy to make, a great way to use up veggies that might be taking a dive, and can be used as a starter to a meal or as a meal enhancer.
Susan’s salsa is a throw back to her childhood. Remember the snacks and goodies her mom use to make on their annual visit to see family friends in Wisconsin, she is sharing her Mom’s Corn & Bean salsa. I, on the other hand, decided to go a somewhat more traditional route, and roasted some tomatillos, garlic, onions and jalapenos to make a spicy salsa that has a bit of a twist (only because I forgot something at the store). So get your bag of tortilla chips, it’s time to dig in.
