Salsa (Spanish for "sauce") is a mixture of diced vegetables prepared either as a dip or a topping. There are numerous salsa recipies and varieties. Typical ingredients for salsa include tomatoes, peppers, onions, and cilantro.
Supermarket varieties of salsa come in various degrees of spiciness, which include "mild", "medium", and "hot". However, there is no precise metric for salsa spiciness, as even supermarket salsas labeled as "hot" are less spicy than most variety of hot sauce. Salsa is not to be confused with hot sauce, as hot sauce is a puree of spicy peppers usually mixed with (among other possible ingredients) vinegar and salt.
Salsa made with avocadoes is called, "guacamole". Salsa made with cheese is called, "salsa con queso".
