10 Things to Make with Jarred Salsa

Salsa and chips? Sure, they're a great pair. But think beyond snack time and use jarred salsa to quickly add a zesty kick to everything from eggs and casseroles to chicken and pork chops.

Zucchini & Ground Beef Casserole

"I really wasn't expecting as much flavor as this dish delivered! I used chunky, medium-spicy salsa and served it with flour tortillas."

-Susie D

Spicy & Sweet Pork Chop Steaks

"My husband could not stop eating the sauce and said the pork was cooked just right. This could go into a slow cooker very easily, and I think the sauce would be great with chicken."


Black Bean Soup

"This soup was very easy to make. There were no leftovers, as all of my children asked for more — even my 2-year-old. The lime added a very fresh, unique flavor. We'll make this again!"


Easy Baked Whitefish Ole'

"I got this recipe off of a package of frozen whitefish; it was a lifesaver when I was drawing a mental block on what to cook one night."

-Vino Girl

Salsa Meatloaf

"This was really good! I used extra-lean ground beef since my grocery store didn't have any ground turkey."


Mexican Stuffed Shells

"These were a hit at my Mexican fiesta party this weekend. They were simple to put together and really good. I doubled the recipe and added crushed chips as a topping — they were devoured!"


Baked Eggs With Salsa

"I found this little gem while looking for easy ways to punch up eggs. I used medium salsa, which was just right for us, and I served it with warm corn tortillas."

-Ginny Sue

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

"This is one of those dishes that's a cooking lifesaver! It's simple, with just four ingredients, and it can be put together in no time. The whole family really enjoyed it."

San Jose Quiche

"A cross between a quiche, a strata and a tamale pie, this dish is fairly mild but distinctly Mexican. It's colorful and festive and a pleasure to eat!"

-Lavender Lynn

Salsa Chicken

"This is such a simple dish to make. There's no measuring needed — just add the ingredients to your liking. I have served this with Spanish rice, but plain rice works, too. Refried beans complete the menu."
