Hey Everyone,When I get in a groove with tortilla chips and salsa, my arm has a mind of its own and continues to scoop and scoop and scoop. I can not get enough of this “snack.” Some Salsa HistoryAccording to thenibble.com, “Salsa, which has been America’s favorite condiment since 2000—supplanting ketchup—actually has been a favorite condiment for thousands of years. The chile has been domesticated since about 5200 B.C.E., and tomatoes by 3000 B.C.E. both in Central America. The two were combined into a condiment, which the Conquistadors named “salsa,” or sauce.”Today, there are many variations of this delightful dip, and here’s one you could whip up in 5 minutes. Add some corn to the recipe below if you wish…it’s perfect over tortilla chips sprinkled with shredded cheese! (recipe credit: Spark Recipes)
