Salsa is great as a dip, but you can cook with it, too. Whether it’s the Mexican “fudge” instead of nachos, or the soup, chicken or fish recipes, salsa is a shortcut to delicious dishes. These recipes are courtesy Mrs. Renfro’s Salsa.
This is as tempting as fudge to people who prefer the savory to the sweet. It’s more “baked nachos” than fudge, but much neater to eat. After you bake it, you serve it on tortilla chips. Your family and friends will beg for more!
