    I thought I had an easy vote, then I thought about it, and I am left to further thought about what I will do here. Do I really like the Fried Chicken because of that crunchy, seasoned skin or for the whole ball of wax. Salsa & chips is an appy-teaser, but there is such an addictability to it when it comes to a great salsa. Plus the chips are always a factor too. Step into a good Mexican cantina and you will much on those things all the way up until your meal arrives. This sure is not an easy vote. Someone convince me what to do. 😕

    I had to go with chips and salsa. I love fried chicken but I once bit into a raw piece in a restaurant and had a mouth full of raw chicken and juice. Now, every time I bite into a piece, my throat closes just a little. I dont think I will ever get over it. With breasts and thighs I tear the meat off but with legs and wings, thats wrong.

    With all the great types of salsa a big bowl of it can become a meal for me. Your not a chilehead if you take fried meat over a fiery salsa!

    I love both, but I went with fried chicken. There are so many ways to make it spicy: wing sauces, seasonings in the breading…you can take whole pieces, chicken strips, nuggets, and dip them in any type of fiery condiment like hot sauces, BBQ sauces, a spicy honey mustard…fried chicken goes with so many sides and is a staple of American cuisine.

    I’m going with chips & salsa on this one. Not because I have anything against fried chicken, or that fried chicken is not a great excuse to eat hot sauce, but simply that I try to keep my cooking healthy so I don’t eat it too often.
