Make Salsa 4 Ways With These Spicy Recipes

April 16, 2014 4:03 pm

Whether you eat it with tortilla chips or use it as a topping on your favorite Southwestern dish, salsa is a healthy and flavorful dip with a variety of different uses. These simple salsa recipes are welcome alternatives to your usual store-bought jar, and they come in a number of unique flavors that you may not have ever experienced.

Restaurant Style Salsa [Pioneer Woman]
No matter which brands you buy at the grocery store, salsa just never tastes as good at home as it does at a restaurant. This expert recipe will show you just how your favorite Mexican restaurant creates their crave-worthy salsa.

Crunchy Tomatillo-Avocado Salsa [Rick Bayless]
Combining the cool taste of avocado with flavorful tomatillos, this authentic salsa recipe is one for the books. It’s ideal for those who love spicy foods because it is simply full of hot green chilies, but this recipe can also be toned down to become more family-friendly.

Mango-Tomato Salsa [Food and Wine]
Perfect for pairing with crunchy fish tacos or other summer dishes, this sweet salsa incorporates mangos for a unique flavor. It’s truly simple to make, and it even looks just as good as it tastes.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde [Simply Recipes]
Give the traditional red salsa a rest in favor of something greener and uniquely flavorful. The tomatillo gives this sauce its green color, and a dash of lime juice adds a juicy flavor that’s truly refreshing.
