I LOVE salsa – mild, hot, spicy, fruit or veggies – I love it all! And the good news is, my family does, too! In my opinion, there really is not a more perfect snack than chips and salsa. You get your salty craving sated at the same time as loading up on what is usually a low calorie salsa packed with fruits and veggies! So you can only imagine my excitement when I was able to choose four gourmet salsas from Mrs. Renfro’s robust salsa line of products in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think of the Gourmet Salsas?
I have purchased Mrs. Renfro’s gourmet salsas before at my local grocery store, but until I checked out their website, I never realized just how extensive their line of gourmet salsas really was! From black bean to nacho cheese, garlic salsa to ghost pepper, they really have something for everyone! With ingredients that you can read (and pronounce!) it is nice to know that they are really thinking about what their customers are eating!
We received four amazing gourmet salsas and found a few new favorites, here is what we received:
Tequila Salsa: This salsa is so versatile! It has clean, simple flavors with just the right hint of tequila that sends it over the end. This medium spicy salsa is the perfect complement to fish tacos and pairs nicely with a margarita! I recommend this salsa as a way to introduce those that are nervous about “medium” salsas to the next level of heat!
Green Salsa: Now this salsa – it has some kick! Comprised primarily of jalapeño peppers, you should be prepared to have your nasal passages cleared and a glass of milk handy as a ‘just in case’ measure! Hubby really loved this flavor and didn’t find it as hot as me – but he has a far better tolerance to heat than I do! This is a wonderful breakfast salsa completing homemade breakfast burritos in a way I never knew possible!
Pomegranate Salsa: This gourmet salsa was my absolute favorite! With sweet notes of pomegranate followed by the deep smokiness of the chipotles – all balanced with cilantro, this was a feast to be reckoned with! I had fully intended on marinating chicken with this salsa before grilling it, but the jar emptied much more quickly than I had anticipated. Either way- super delicious!
Ghost Pepper Salsa: Let me just say: HEED THE WARNING – seriously, this jar said “Caution: Scary Hot” and both hubby and I chuckled. When we say we like hot and spicy foods, we typically mean it, but WOW, this salsa meant it! Once we learned (and drank nearly a gallon of milk) not to scoop the Ghost Pepper salsa, we were fine! In small doses, this is a wonderfully hot salsa! For me, that meant lightly dipping my chip in and dragging it along the lip of the bowl to pull off the excess. For hubby, that meant pouring a little less on top of his eggs in the morning! We did find that this was a wonderful addition to soups – just add a small spoonful and suddenly you have a soup with an extra kick of flavor and heat!
The gourmet salsas from Mrs. Renfro’s are delicious, all natural and gluten-free (yay!). I was excited to expand my gourmet salsa tastings and will be on the outlook for other flavors at my grocery store this week!
