My husband has always been a chip and dip fan. I remember buying Costco size salsas and chips when we were first married and going through them at record speed. He will dip a chip in anything. He even went through a phase where he would bring plain tuna to work for lunch and dip chips into it. Yeah, okay. That’s a little strange, but I love him anyway. Ha! When I make a fresh salsa, he always gets super excited…and then eats it all before anyone else can ;). This is one of his favorites!
