red and green salsa

My favorite salsa recipe comes from my roommate senior year college. It's addicting. The green salsa one, we got stuck with a bunch of tomatillos via our CSA so had to make it. It's good though. Both of these are my College or NFL Football watching snacks.

Chips, I like Native Chips. These guys are local, based out of San Leandro and they give people (like my CSA) their used oil so they can make biodiesel. I have this weird local food circle where it seems everyone's connected with Eatwell Farm e.g. Joseph Schmidt, Hanger One, Blue Bottle, Native Chips, etc.
