Tips, Variations + STORING
How to thicken. One way to keep your salsa from getting runny is to strain the salsa, removing excess liquid, before blending it with the cream cheese. If the salsa is still too runny for your liking, blend in more cream cheese.
Spice. Easily adjust the spice level according to the salsa you choose to use. Use Homemade Salsa, or a store bought salsa, like Pace Picante Sauce (you can even use our Sweet Salsa Verde recipe too!)
Salsa can be bought in mild, medium and hot varieties. Have hot sauce or red chili flakes on the side for individual guests to add heat to their own portions.
- Mix in shredded cheddar cheese or Mexican blend cheese
- Garnish with green onions
- Add in Shredded Chicken
- Sprinkle in Homemade Taco Seasoning
- Use Salsa Verde or Tomatillo Salsa
