This salsa made its debut about 5 months ago at a family dinner party to celebrate my son’s Taekwondo Promotion.  It was thrown together at last minute because I was missing ingredients to make my mom’s 7-layer dip.  Now, it’s a staple at every family function. The best part… there’s no right or wrong way to make it.

I served this on Friday at Eli Lilly’s corporate headquarters, where I was asked to cater lunch & give a presentation about The Produce Mom & Indianapolis Fruit Company’s successful campaign to better connect with our consumer & promote wellness.  I did a great job, but this salsa was the true shining star!

Southwest Salsa Recipe

The best part about this Southwest Salsa is its versatility. Use whatever fresh, canned, or frozen produce items you have available.  Just make sure you keep the Red Gold Chipotle Tomatoes, the Chipotle Tabasco Sauce & the Truvia – these provide the unique “sweet heat” flavor profile that is praised every time I serve this salsa.  I will often serve this salsa over a bed of romaine for an easy & delicious Southwest Salad.

From my party to yours… Cheers & ENJOY.
