How To Make Salsa

Salsa, the Spanish word for “sauce,” actually predates the Spanish culture. Aztecs were making salsas with beans, chiles and tomatoes for a very long time. Salsas are typically tomato-based, and can vary from sweet to spicy or even smoky. Sweet variations can be made with a mango or pineapple base and can still include jalapenos for those who don’t want to sacrifice the heat. Try making a fresh, chunky salsa, known as pico de gallo, as well as a blended version. Salsa is a fun dish to make and requires no cooking time. Salsas can be used in a plethora of other recipes, as a topping or just enjoyed with tortilla chips as an appetizer. In this video, Chef Mark provides an online cooking lesson that will show you to make a basic salsa. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
