View Full Version : Stuffing for Salsa-Leather
02-02-2007, 12:08 PM
Momma went crazy making a huge batch of a tropical salsa (sweet/spicy) and so I blended it up and made leather. Now, I'm wondering about a good stuffing to use al-la Alissa's banana leather rollups. I'm thinking in terms of a savory stuffing rather than a sweet. Ideas?

it sounds like hummus might be really good with what you made
i always used to like to have tomato wedges with hummus

Oops! You know I didn't ask if this was a tomato-ey salsa first, but if it is, try this:
Since salsa is often served with corn chips, cheese and sour cream, I would try a cheesy type of spread or pate with fresh corn kernels in it. And I would add crumbs of the cheesy pizza cracker that is going around since to me it tastes more like dry cheese slices rather than a cracker. (That one that tastes like Crazy Bread or something, otherwise known as Bell Pepper Crackers.) Maybe the odd flake of jalapeno unless the salsa wrap is already sizzling! Oh yes, and for sure some bits of black olives!
You know, that sounds very good. I think I will try it. It is a little bit like an inside-out Mexican dish. Usually we would be making a corn type of wrap with salsa and sour cream and cheese on the inside or as a topping. This is unique. Way to go!

Wow that sounds like the most interesting leather I have ever seen! :p
Why not stuff with raw cesar salad or even wrap them in a garden salad. Yum yum!!

It wasn't a tomato'y salsa though there were some...it did make for an interesting leather. What I did was use the filling from Alissa's crepes minus half the honey and added nutritional yeast (and I forgot the Braggs). For the topping, I used a concoction mom had made up for salad dressing (that in itself is unusual but delicious) added avocado and chili powder.
Anyway, the dish was rich and delicious....sweet and spicy. I wish I could give a recipe but from beginning to end it was improv....
