Whether it's an impromptu get-together with friends or a formal cocktail party, these 20-minute recipes will whet the appetite.
Everybody's used to bottled salsa, which is why telling your guests you made this one yourself will impress them far more than you'd ever expect. It's an easy-as-pie recipe whose secret is using one can of tomatoes drained and the other undrained for the perfect scoopable texture. It's easy to adjust to your taste―add more or less garlic, cilantro, jalapeño, and lime as you see fit, and try stirring in diced avocado, radish, or jicama for extra interest. This is a good salsa to have on hand for more than just parties, too: You can put it on tacos, quesadillas, or anything else that needs flavor.
