Pumpkin Salsa is one of those items that’s so specialized it’s challenging to come up with new things to make with it. It goes with pork, though, and since I’m turning some smoked pulled swine into taquitos, making this as a fall holiday appetizer (or even a main dish) was an easy leap for my lazy self. And, as it turned out, an enjoyable one.
