Chicken Salsa Recipe

Ever wonder what the most popular meat is in the world?

Yeah, I know, that’s a random thought. And, there’s debate on that and different opinions, so research on and dig deeper if you want to know.

Here in the United States my white meat of choice is chicken. And, my red meat of choice is beef. Some think that goat meat is the most popular meat in the world.

But, the Huffington Post is challenging that belief. I really haven’t eaten a lot of goat meat in my life, but I admit, I do have some goat meat stew chunks in my freezer.

They came from a local rancher here in Colorado, and I can’t wait to use it!

Regardless of the debate or thoughts, for me, as I said, I’m a chicken lover.
