Recipes With Salsa

Got Salsa? We’ve Got Recipes




Salsa is great as a dip, but you can cook with it, too. Whether it’s the Mexican “fudge” instead of nachos, or the soup, chicken or fish recipes, salsa is a shortcut to delicious dishes. These recipes are courtesy Mrs. Renfro’s Salsa.

Mexican “Fudge”

This is as tempting as fudge to people who prefer the savory to the sweet. It’s more “baked nachos” than fudge, but much neater to eat. After you bake it, you serve it on tortilla chips. Your family and friends will beg for more!


  • 1 pound grated Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ (4 ounces) jar salsa verde (green salsa).
  • 3 eggs, well beaten



  1. Spread half of cheese evenly on the bottom of an 11"x 9" or 11"x 7" baking dish.
  2. Combine the beaten eggs and salsa and spread over the cheese. Add the remaining cheese on top.
  3. Bake at 350°F for approximately 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Cut in 1" squares. Serve on tortilla chips.
