Classic Salsa Recipes

Summer Vegetable Salsa

Fresh Chunky Tex-Mex Salsa Most of us know that jalapeño peppers taste hot. But did you know that if you don't handle them carefully, the oils in the peppers could irritate your skin? Be sure to handle them with care, because their heat and special flavor add so much to our favorite foods that they're worth the extra effort.

Salsa Verde In Spanish, Salsa Verde means "Green Sauce", but to me, it means even more variety for my Mexican feasts.

Roasted Pepper Salsa You'll love the yummy, fire-roasted flavor that jarred, roasted red peppers add to salsa! It's an easy way to change things up if you're bored with your typical homemade salsa routine.
