This salsa is great - not super hot and a delicious blend of flavours! It really goes well with the melted cheddar and chicken. I couldn't find the small vol-au-vent shells, so I tried it with a package of 6 large ones and it made lunch for three. Went over really well with my husband and son. Should I find the small size vol-au-vents, I'll buy them to give this a whirl as an appetizer, especially since I know in advance we'll love them! Thanks for posting, it's a keeper and I'll probably try the salsa with other things.

<p>I live close Hobart in Tasmania, a wonderful part of Australia but a little chilly in winter so be sure to book your holiday for summer! I'm self-employed in the embedded electronics area and being at home most of the day gives me plenty of time to prepare those recipes with long preparation and cooking times. As most of my clients are either interstate or overseas I get to occasionally catch up with them and enjoy their local restaurants, always nice to have someone else paying the bills! <br /> <br />As well as food I'm partial to the odd beer & wine, so often like to go to a local pub and catch some local bands. No need for an alarm clock in the morning, my cat Molly likes her breakfast at 8:00AM sharp and makes an effective alarm! Lately I've been starting to get into some digital photography so you might be seeing a few additional recipe shots on Zaar... <br /> <br /><a href=http://www.satsleuth.com/VisitorMap/stats.php?id=vUa1ya8Z> <br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/VisitorMap/globes/Globe_vUa1ya8Z.gif alt= /></a></p>
