Our local Wild Harvest shop sells a pineapple-pepper salsa that we bought
on a whim.  We've eaten it with tortilla chips, and it's pretty good that
way, but the best thing we've found to eat with it are vegetarian
"Chicken" fingers (I don't remember who makes 'em -- I call 'em
'chicky-boos', just to be weird... :)  The salsa is basically a pineapple
sauce with a wicked kick!  My husband thought I was pretty strange, buying
it, but he's come to like it, too...
