Crunchy Salsa Sandwich

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

A very bachelor-y and on-the-go sandwich, that's simply a filler, more than anything else. I made it once when I was really hungry, with next to nothing in the fridge. It's not health food, but yummy enough to make up for it :-)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 12 tablespoons salsa (Use your favourite kind; I used a moderately-spicy, vegetarian one)
  • potato chips (for the "crunchy" part... again, use your favourite, or whatever'sa available at home)


  1. Toast both slices of bread in a toaster till they are as crisp as you want it.
  2. Spread the salsa evenly over one slice.
  3. If it appears too dry, feel free to double the amount of salsa that you use.
  4. This is a completely"taste-while-you-make" recipe.
  5. Now add a layer of potato chips to this salsa-covered slice, and cover it with the other slice of toasted bread.
  6. Your crunchy salsa sandwich is done and ready-to-munch into!

I *love* salsa on bread. Use very hot salsa on regular white bread (the stuff that comes in a bag!), forget the top slice of bread and eat. It's great when you have a cold and need something hot and spicy to unclog your nose but you dont want to be stuck on soup all the time!

I can't believe I actually tried this out!! I decided to give it a trial run, with a few alterations: (this is the smooth salsa sandwich version, I didn't have any chips) I laid out 2 pieces of fresh italian bread. On both sides I put the salsa, and added a combo of grated american/pepperjack cheese. On one side I placed thinly sliced red onions and cherry tomatoes, and on the other side a sizzling row of Trappey's jalapeno slices (the best in the world). I stuck it all together and toasted it in the oven. 10 minutes later, I had a rather interesting looking sandwich sitting in front of me. The flavor was, well, good. But it was very, very messy: each bite sent salsa squirting every which way. While it filled my gnawing hunger, it didn't last too long. I was *starving* 2 hours later! This would probably be really good with a tortilla shell. The bread just doesn't make a great holder for salsa. Cute idea, though!

Nothing about that recipe sounds good at all. None of it even goes together.
