Orange & Tomato Salsa & Cinnamon Chips

What a fresh idea. A little tart, a little sweet, a little heat and everyone's favorite cilantro. How could you go wrong. Use as a compliment to chicken or fish or pork, or a dip for tortilla chips.... yummmy!

Handmade by Hoffy is a collection of recipes and craft ideas that I love. One of my favorite things is "salsa", all types. When summer comes and you have all the fresh veggies and fruits, there's nothing better than having some salsa around. I love salsa with chips, but, salsa is also a great compliment to fish, pork and chicken. Again the fresh taste of fruits and veggies added to meats or fish brings the taste of your entre' to the next level. I hope you enjoy this very easy recipe. I have also included a recipe for cinnamon chips...another great addition for fruit and veggie salsa.

    One Final Thought...
    I think most people love salsas. I don't think it just has to be smashed tomatoes in a jar. This recipe is a great one for summer cookouts. Whether you use cinnamon tortillas or just plain tortilla chips, you can't go wrong. I love the tastes of summer...and fresh tomatoes and big juicy oranges together are a great couple. 

    I do hope you enjoyed this post on "salsas". So yummy and so good for everyone. Spicy, sweet, hot, or mild, salsa is a great appetizer or a great compliment to main dishes. I do hope you try this recipe or any of the other recipes on this post. They all say SUMMER with a capital "S"!😀
