We're not sure where we'd be without salsa, but we suspect our game days would be much less exciting, our pre-Mexican food stomachs much emptier, and our appetizer selection much less fun. Thankfully, there are a seemingly endless number of salsa varieties for every occasion and for every type of tastes -- from spicy, to sweet, and everything in between.

We've rounded up some of our favorite salsas, with recipes perfect for everything from football Sundays to dinner parties. These salsas are good enough to eat without chips, but if you insist on going with the traditional method, we suggest you go the homemade route.
