This Warm Salsa Recipe would make an excellent sauce for pasta. Or serve with tortilla chips as usual. Or better yet, heat up some tortillas and dip those in it! Oh, yum! Any way you do it, this salsa will make your mouth water for more after just one bite.

The chili peppers I used are from a friend’s garden. But they are simply chili peppers that can be bought at any grocery store.
