What are you thinking here salsa the dance or salsa the food? I personally love both but here I would be talking about Salsa the food or the condiment. Basically, salsa is the Spanish word for sauce and it comprises of chilies, tomatoes, and even spices. You can go back in history and know about the Aztecs, Mayans, and the Incas. The Spaniards were the ones who found tomatoes after they conquered Mexico and which earmarked the start of Salsa. The Aztec Lords have used this spicy combination of tomatoes, chilies, ground squash seeds and several other spices so as to make the sauce condiment and compliment their non-veg dishes like turkey, venison, lobster, and even fish.
Since that time this condiment has gained popularity and it is known as a delightful and a spicy salsa sauce that beautifully brings out the flavor of the food and most often it is used with the tortilla chips. You can easily fall in love with this sauce as it is being widely used as ketchup and Americans really love it.
