This is definitely one of the heartiest salsas I've ever encountered. Add a bit of beef to this, and it's practically a meal all by itself. I'd recommend letting it sit for a while so the flavors can blend, rather than serving it immediately. I didn't have any cherry tomatoes on hand when I made this, so I just used a can of the diced tomatoes with jalapenos and it worked well. I do suggest using a strong tortilla chip for this salsa.

I've always wondered what cowboy salsa was and now I understand where it gets it's name from. There's no doubt in my mind that it's hearty enough to be used for many different snacks or meals. Maybe something like, diced or sliced grilled chicken mixed to combine and served over rice...yum!

This does seem quite a substantial salsa. I would imagine it could keep the hunger pangs at bay whilst you are preparing a main meal. The idea I had for this then is to serve on Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday family gathering meal is always a tall order and, let's face it, dinner is never on time. There is too much to co-ordinate. So this is a good plan to keep everyone from complaining!
