The Associated Press: Salsa Surpasses Ketchup

"Salsa overtaking ketchup as America's No. 1 condiment was just the start.

These days, tortillas outsell burger and hot dog buns; sales of tortilla chips trump potato chips...Welcome to the taste of American food in 2013.

As immigrant and minority populations rewrite American demographics, the nation's collective menu is reflecting this flux, as it always has."
---Suzette Laboy and J.M. Hirsch, The Associated Press
