This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). I'm categorizing this salsa as a snack but incorporating it into a meal is more likely to be supportive of a weight loss goal. The first time I made this, I served it over chicken with a side salad and sorghum (a type of grain). If you don't like chicken, try serving this salsa over fish or pork instead.
I don't find corn chips and salsa to be very satisfying, so that is not a snack I choose often. Putting this salsa over a source of protein in my meal is a far more satiating way to enjoy similar flavors. If I added a glass of milk to the meal shown above, I'd have all of the food groups covered.
Don't forget that you can turn up the heat by leaving the seeds in the jalapeno or adding another jalapeno to the recipe. Spicy!
