Step 1: What Is My Salsa Bowl Theory?
A bowl of private or community salsa becomes LESS hot and spicy as more SALT is added, thus, the last few bites of salsa are the mildest and the first few bites of salsa are the spiciest.
This salt is generally deposited from salty tortilla chips being dipped into the salsa. Salt is also sometimes added when the occasional individual who pours salt on their salsa dipped chips over the bowl or when needed for flavor.
Step 2: How Can the Salsa Bowl Theory Help Me?
1. To benefit yourself, use Salsa Bowl Theory to eat salsa at your exact favorite level of spiciness. Is the salsa too spicy? Just hang out for a few minutes and wait for others to turn down the heat. Salsa seem mild or "medium", eat it now before others can tone it down with their chip-salt.
2. To gain social standing, either tell people Salsa Bowl Theory and either say you read it on the Internet or, better yet, claim you made it up! People will be amazed at your cleverness and powers of observation.
Also, if everyone is eating the salsa and saying "Wow, this is sooo spicy"; excuse yourself to use the restroom and come back in five to ten minutes. By this time the salsa is toned down... but everyone will already have fiery mouths... you can just start snacking and say something cool like, "This isn't spicy at all!" or "In (insert cool and distant location here), this is mild salsa! You guys are all lightweights!"
