Salsa is a easy, cheap, and versatile hostel recipe. We use it on sandwiches, or alone on bread, with crackers, or tortillas. Its an easy way to spice up any sandwich. Or add a couple spoonfuls to an avocado for some quick guacamole. Because salsa is fast, easy and cheap we find ourselves making it frequently and keeping a tupperware container full of it in the hostel refrigerator. Take it backpacking on hiking trips or for a quick snack while you walk around the town.
