14 Satisfying Salsa Recipes

salsa recipes

There is one thing our family loves and that's salsa!  One of our favorite things to do is sample different types of salsa and make different salsa recipes, too.  Salsa is a healthy way to spice up or add flavor to just about anything.  You can make it as spicy or mild as you like, and even make salsa that isn't spicy at all, like the recipe below for fruit salsa with cinnamon chips.  I've collected a few varieties of salsa recipes for Cinco de Mayo, or any other day.  Salsa can be enjoyed as an appetitzer with chips or veggies, in a sandwich or burger, used for marinating meat for burritos or tacos, the any other way you can imagine.  Enjoy!

Wholly Guacamole & Salsa


We absolutely LOVE salsa in our house.  Daddy loves the hot stuff, I like the mild-medium salsas, and the Captain likes the extremely mild (aka not spicy at all) salsa!  So we were so excited to try out the delicious Wholly Salsas, Guacamole, and Avocado.  

We love pineapple, so I decided to open the pineapple salsa first.  It wasn't hot to me, at all, which I was suprised about.  I think my preference would be a spoonful of pineapple salsa plus a spoonful of the medium salsa!    Yum!

I decided that my favorite salsa was the Avocado Verde Salsa.  It is a mix of tomatillo salsa and guacamole and it is soooooo good.  I bet I ate half of the container in one sitting.  YUP!  It was that good!

In a close second was the Guacamole & Spicy Pico.  It has a layer of guacamole on the bottom and a layer of spicy pico de gallo on the top.  I slathered some on my chicken fajitas and it was again, soooooo good:


Then I decided I should break out of the mold of traditional Mexican food.  We've been loving eating pan grilled squash, okra, and zucchini this summer, so I added some Roasted Tomato Salsa to the top of this summery dish and it was delicious!  It made it have a whole different, delicious flavor that I loved!

Okra, Squash, Zucchini
