Bowl of Simply Salsa

What is the most popular condiment in the U.S.? Based on the title of this post, you’ve probably already figured out it’s salsa – the tomato-and-chilies-based sauce that dates all the way back to the Aztec, Inca and Mayan empires. According to, 218 million American bought salsa last year. But why go to the grocery store when you can make your own fresh salsa at home in just minutes with Simply Salsa Mix? BONUS: It’s a delicious way to use the bountiful tomato harvest from this year’s garden!

Bursting with the flavors of bell peppers, onion, jalapenos, garlic and cilantro, Simply Salsa Mix has been a favorite since 1999. It’s not surprising: just add a couple of tablespoons to fresh or canned tomatoes and serve up with chips, or use in your favorite dishes. Need ideas? Check out these five fantastic recipes:

Crazy Simple Pineapple Salsa.

This recipe simply swaps canned pineapple for the tomatoes to create a delightfully different take on traditional salsa.

Zucchini Chicken Enchiladas.

While you’re using up the home-grown tomatoes, why not put those garden zucchini to tasty use? This low-carb version of the Mexican favorite skips the tortilla, but none of the flavor. 

Simply Salsa Egg Cups.

Huevos rancheros is a popular way to pair eggs and salsa. This recipe, packed with wholesome veggies, is baked in a muffin tin. So easy! 

Avocado & Corn Salad.

Here’s a side salad as pleasing to the eye as it is to the taste buds. The bright combo of golden corn, green avocado, lush tomatoes and beans is the definition of fresh. 

Southwest Beefy Mac & Cheese.

Could mac & cheese get any better? Yes. Yes, it could. Give this comfort food favorite a Mexican twist with the addition of Simply Salsa Mix seasoning and taco cheese in place of Cheddar. 

Next time you’re in the mood for salsa, why not make your own? I think you’ll find it a nice change of pace! (See what I did there?)
