Favorite Easy Salsa Recipe

salsa

This is my all time favorite salsa recipe. Chipotle comes from the Nahuatl/Aztec word chilpoctli, which means smoked chili. The chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce add a nice depth of flavor. Using a blender reduces some of the chopping and makes this salsa fast and easy to prepare. You can vary the ingredients according to your own taste. I love this salsa with tortilla chips but find myself sneaking it on eggs, potatoes, rice, pasta, or in salads for extra flavor.

Your Favorite Quinoa Salad Recipe to the Rescue!

Quinoa salad

Quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah) is a healthy, high-protein, gluten-free alternative to grains. It is actually a seed and is considered a complete protein and a superfood. Quinoa has a light nutty flavor and is extremely versatile. I often use it in place of rice and toss it on salads and into soups. This quinoa salad is perfect as a side dish or you can throw some grilled fish or chicken on top for a main course. Give it a try!
