Salsa is one of those rare food that gives you LOTS of flavor for very few calories. (Why, dear butter, haven't you learned from salsa?)
AND, you get to add a serving of vegetables to your dish. How can you go wrong?
Snack Girl hadn't actually met great salsa until she visited the great state of Texas in 1991. There she tasted a combination of salsa and eggs for breakfast and realized she was missing out!
Tomatoes, onions, cilantro, chiles, and eggs for breakfast? That was a true awakening. This meal went well with my favorite breakfast drink, coffee.
So, when Mrs. Renfro's of Fort Worth, Texas asked to send me salsa - I was psyched! Of course, I prefer fresh salsa, but it isn't tomato season so I'm not making my own right now.
Mrs. Renfro's makes a bunch of different flavors and I had actually already bought their "Green Salsa" from my local Stop & Shop.
Two tablespoons include 10 calories and this is the ingredient list:
jalapeno peppers, water, onions, distilled vinegar, corn starch, salt, spices, garlic
It was really good. My favorite is the Chipotle Corn Salsa which lasted in my fridge for about 30 seconds. The Mrs. Renfro's website suggests pouring it over pasta with some grilled chicken. I think this meal would be divine.
For those of you who like danger, give the Ghost Pepper Salsa a try - "The ghost pepper takes on many forms - pepper spray, hand grenades, smoke bombs… and now salsa!" - I tried it and now I use it in VERY limited quantities to add some spice.
