This Salsa Recipes are perfect for your favorite Mexican dishes.

"Salsa is the Spanish word for sauce. It refers to a condiment, a mixture of chopped vegetables, fruits and seasonings that may be cooked or raw. This is normally chopped and not pureed, and is a side to a main dish. The main ingredients in easy salsa recipes are tomatoes, garlic, onions and chiles. Salsas are thicker and chunkier than picante sauces. Salsa can be fresh, cooked or bottled.

This is a very simple salsa recipe. Simple ingredients are blended to created a flavorful spicy mixture that's great with tortilla chips and on maxican-style foods.
