Jalapeno Mango Salsa with Vanilla and Lime Recipe
Salsa is the Spanish word meaning "sauce".
In English, especially in the United States, when the word "salsa" is used in an unqualified manner, it refers to the spicy tomato-and-chili-based preparation known as salsa roja, salsa picante or salsa cruda, as adopted from Mexican cuisine.
It is commonly used as a dip alongside tortilla chips, or as a condiment served along with dishes such as huevos rancheros or burritos.
In the Hispanophone world, there are hundreds of different kinds of salsas used in a variety of culinary applications.
