Salsa screams party. It’s bright and colorful with so much flavor, and filled with loads of healthy goodness! You can eat as much as you want without ever having to worry about eating “too much”. And it’s good on just about everything, from scrambled eggs to steak! Have you tried mixing some into cottage cheese? It’s heaven!!
And there are so many different kinds of salsa! Red or green? Spicy or mild? Chunky or blended? The variations are endless!
This salsa is a spicy chipotle, with tomatoes that have been roasted until they’re good and black then blended almost to a puree…perfection!
