Chips and salsa are starting to wane as the weather cools off. I still love finding ways to incorporate salsa into meals becuase I love giving food an extra kick. Our friends at Treasure Valley Salsa sent over this recipe for Healthy Fall Chili with Treasure Valley Salsa. I can't wait to try it out and see if it is as good as it looks and sounds. Treasure Valley Salsa can be found in the natural food section in Fred Meyer stores across the state.
