Salsa

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
What are some other ways to eat salsa w/o chips? I make homemade salsa and I freaking love it so much I can eat ALOT at once (which is good, right - its tomatoes! LOL) but I could go through a half a bag of chips.

Are there any other ways you can think to eat salsa w/o chips?

On tacos, burritos, etc (the obvious... but yeah, otherwise, we too go through a lot of (homemade) salsa... and chips

Could you guys share your recipes for salsa prep? Mine seems to always be missing something......

How about as a salad dressing? Lettuce, avocado and a dollop each of salsa and sour cream sounds really good right now!

Ok I dont use any recipe so I'll try.

2 disclaimers: You HAVE to have perfect wonderful yummy tomatos or your salsa is gonna taste like ick. And the other disclaimer is that my dh doesnt eat onions or I would probably use them. But this salsa tastes pretty good on its own!

2 tomatos (Or about 1 cup chopped)
1/4-1/2 c. diced green pepper (Or mix up different kinds of bell pepers - I LOVE cubanelles.)
1/2 tsp garlic minced
1/2-1T minced up cilantro
about 1 tsp minced jalapeno

You just have to adjust your ingredients for what you like. I LOVE peppers (The bell ones) and so I have more in my salsa. Same goes for cilantro. Somepeople love it, some people hate it.

Yum. :

Salsa is great on eggs, either straight on scrambled eggs or in a breakfast-taco type thing. When I make it, it's specifically for breakfast.

Sure my recipe makes about 1 quart of salsa:

1 can tomatoes (I like diced cause' it makes it slightly thicker, but whatever)
1-2 TBSP red chili flakes (I order chili pequin from Los Chileros online... but normal work too)
1tsp oregano
1tsp garlic
onion (I probably use 1/2 cupish, but I love onions, so you might like less...)
cilantro (optional. Its scarce around here this time of year so we go without, but much better with it, probably 2 TBSP chopped up real fine?)

Blend the tomaotes & chili together, then stir in the rest. Delicious! Its good right away, but gets WAY better after sitting in the fridge for a few hours

Quesadillas are a great salsa snack, you can even make up a bunch of flour tortillas from scratch for them if you want. Grate cheese on one and top with another and cook in a big dry skillet over low heat.

How about a dish like this? Looks like a breakfast-type thing but we've had it for dinner too.

I just eat it with a spoon. I make it more of a dish by adding a little corn, lots of diced radishes, black beans and cilantro to your typical salsa stuff

I like salsa in a flour tortilla with eggs and cheese.

I like to use salsa as a seasoning for turkey taco meat.

Fry the ground turkey w/ onions, garlic, salt, & pepper. When it's cooked through add 1-2 cups of salsa. Put the lid on it and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes. Then take the lid off and let the liquid evaporate until it's to your liking.

I also love to top my Chicken Enchilada Soup w/ salsa and avocado. :

I use salsa on top of chicken, especially to dress up leftovers. :

What do you not eat with salsa?

We like it on eggs, on salads, on tacos, you name it. Good stuff.

Mine is tomatoes (I'm on a kick with 1 can Ro-tel, 1 can fire roasted diced), onions, cilantro, jalapenos, lime juice, and salt. In the summer, of course, it's better, cause it's fresh tomatoes. But, I take what I can get. LOL

You can also use it to make a version of Arroz con Pollo.

I don't remeber the amounts and stuff but you saute chicken parts (legs, thighs) in a little olive oil just to brown them. Take out of pan, set aside. Add some rice (about a cup) to the pan w/ chopped onion, garlic, salt, & pepper. Sautee until rice starts to get a little brown. Put chicken back in pan. Add enough salsa and chicken broth to make 2 cups liquid. Put lid on and cook for 25 minutes, maybe.

: I'm a salsa nut - LOVE it. Can make a meal of chips and salsa. I try to change it up with blue corn chips and salsa - all different kinds. Just takin' notes to see what other mamas do with their salsa.

I craved salsa so much with my first pregnancy, I literally ate it on everything. And if we were out of chips, pretzels worked too.

Fried potatoes with onions, topped with cheese and salsa is amazing. Any mexican food, eggs.
