    So for those of you who like/eat chips and salsa, what are you after more? Are the chips more what you're about, or is it the salsa? A combo of the two? Are you a heat fiend, or do you need it mild?

    Me, I see chips mainly as a delivery method for the salsa. That said, if you use something like Doritos or other seasoned tortilla chips, I may back down on the salsa load so the chip won't be overpowered. I generally like my salsa medium or hot.

    Depends on the chips, but most of the time I keep it about 50/50, cause the chips are good, and the salsa's good too.

    I like salsa that makes me have to fan myself. I like very plain chips so they don't interfere with the taste of the salsa. I like a high ratio of salsa to chip. Somtimes I break the chips up in the salsa so it makes crunchy salsa, which I eat with...

    :eek: :eek: :eek:

    a fork.

    I voted for the crispy chips, but that's because I only like fresh salsa, and it has to have cilantro in it and a decent kick. So most of my salsa opportunities end up in a chips only situation because I am the only one I know who makes it fresh, and I just don't get around to it often.

    This is making me laugh, cuz I can't seem answer even the simplest of questions in a single sentence. I bet none of you would be surprised that I hardly ever order food from a menu in the way they usually serve it. I'm always saying, 'Instead of the x, could you put a little y in it' and I don't like fries so what else else I have with it?"

    Now I don't feel so weird. I'm going to have to do that with what's left of the tortilla chips I have because they're all too small for dipping. Chips & salsa salad ftw!

    Oh yes, fresh salsa with a fair bit of cilantro is so good. Right now I'm just using generic jug salsa which is fine enough, but some fresh diced tomatoes and onions and peppers and minced cilantro with some lime and stuff is godly.

    At first I thought this was going to be a computer/technology thread.

    I love a good and spicy salsa. But I also like sour cream, refried beans, spicy guac, etc for my mixed or separate dipping pleasure.

    Now y'all are bringing up guac, and all I can say to that is yum, and I like it homemade. I sometimes even make homemade chips. I even like avacado slices just spritzed with lemon.

    Oh, you'd love the salsa I make then. 6 different peppers and hot enough to eat the paint off the wall, yet a taste you can't resist. Close to painfully hot, yet tastes so good you can't stop eating it.

    I went with 50/50 especially with some quality Tortilla chips. Also chili con queso or better yet loaded nachos! yum

    Close to painful but so good you can't stop. So, good salsa is the same as my idea of good sex. I knew it.

    Don't worry. I'll say something that you'll completely disagree with and we'll be back at square one. I PROMISE.

    Edit: Weird is my favorite topping to any entre.
