(Family Features) Salsa may seem like a relatively new culinary development, but it's actually been around since at least the time of the Aztecs. They discovered long ago that the zesty flavors of fresh tomatoes, onions and peppers made a great addition to their everyday foods.
If you're a fan of salsa, but haven't ventured beyond the chip and dip stage, you're missing out on some true dining pleasures. In this recipe for Chicken with Salsa Over Asparagus, for example, Sabra Southwestern Style Salsa provides a delicious kick to a sauce for juicy chicken served over roasted asparagus. The combination of chunky vegetables and hand-picked tomatoes in Sabra Salsas delivers fresh flavor that turns an ordinary dinner into a culinary adventure.
So what are some other ways you can liven up meals with salsa? Try some of these ideas from Sabra:
- Start the day off with a bang by making Breakfast Nachos. It's a fun twist on a classic frittata that uses chorizo, Homestyle Salsa or Chunky Pico de Gallo and tortilla chips to wake up your taste buds.
- Enjoy a hearty, meatless lunch with Black Bean and Goat Cheese Tacos. Wrapped in soft tortillas and topped with Classic Style Salsa, it's a lunch that will truly satisfy.
- Turn plain brown rice into something party-worthy by cooking it up with some onion and garlic, then mixing in some Southwestern Style Salsa.
