I love salsas of all kinds because of the different veggies, herbs/spices and fruits you can use. A tomato based salsa is best when fresh tomatoes are available.

When you want a good, hot Tex Mex appetizer this recipe is a good choice. There is very little preparation and only 10 minutes to heat. Serve with tortilla chips, fresh vegetables or some good bread cut up in chunks for dipping. Makes about 3 cups
This is a spicy cheese sauce that is good on a turkey burger or any fresh vegetable.

I like just about any type of salsa and this one is loaded with fresh tomatoes (even a few canned). Salsa can be made mild (use poblanos instead of jalapenos), use parsley instead of cilantro, add more onions and so on. A fun dish to make.
