      What’s better than fresh salsa made with ripe tomatoes? We think a bowl of cool, spicy Mexican dip on a hot summer day really hits the spot. But if, after enjoying your snack, you simply can’t eat a bite more, we have a few great ideas for how to use your leftovers.

      Our Center Stage bloggers and in-house test kitchen experts are always developing delicious and creative recipe ideas with fresh salsa. Here are some of our favorites in case you end up with leftovers, too.
