Salsa has many meanings in and out of the kitchen, but “salsa” simply translated means “sauce” in Spanish. Some believe that Salsa is a term that has more relation to the kitchen than to music or dance. But for many fans of Salsa, outside of the kitchen it means listening to the hot, funky beats of ...

…Hot sauce that is. Hot sauce has evolved from an ever-present, but always boring, token tabletop condiment to a niche industry ranging from mild run-of-the-mill to pleasantly fruit infused to so hot it comes with a warning to keep away from children (and thatt's not a joke).
