I like doing recipes that are a bit different. I also like simple recipes too. Sometimes a simple salsa is all I need to satisfy a craving I might have.
I mentioned a few times on Seduction in the Kitchen about how I really embrace change. As I say change is good. Do you know why I always say that?
The change is good saying came because I realized I needed changes in my life or I would be miserable. So I made tiny changes like opening myself up to try different cuisines like Mexican. That was the first change I embraced, by doing that I realized I like Mexican Recipes.

Why I like a chunky salsa is because it does help fill you up. Salsa is pretty simple to make in all honesty. There is really not much to it. A fresh salsa is a few basic ingredients.
