Note about accompanying munchies for service... While the mixed chips at Jaguar are a perfect match, this salsa's creaminess would even work well with a veggie crudite. I'd try blanched haricot vert, asparagus and cauliflower. If you're feeling healthful, it would hands down beat a cream-based dip!
