What Is Your Favorite Salsa?

March 25, 2011   137 Comments

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?)

Mrs Renfro's 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.

The peach salsa sounds delicious!!

on March 25, 2011

I've been obsessed with Mrs. Renfro's Habanero Salsa for YEARS. I buy at least five jars at a time to stock up! :)

on March 25, 2011

The peach salsa sounds tasty (plus, it is mild, which is about all the heat I can handle!) :)

on March 25, 2011

They all sound amazing, but I would love to get my hands on some of the garlic salsa!

on March 25, 2011

Black Bean salsa sounds fantastic!!

on March 25, 2011

Honestly I'd like to try them all! I love salsa. If I had to choose, I'd say the Black Bean Salsa or the Chipolte Corn Salsa. Yummy!!! I'll have to check these out at my local store.

on March 25, 2011

I would love to try the Habanero Salsa - but I also think I could handle the Ghost Pepper Salsa!

on March 25, 2011

They all sound good! And the Mrs Renfrow's I've tried have all been really good, too.

One of our favorite easy dinners is to pour a jar of salsa and a half jar of water in to a crock pot. I add a cup of uncooked brown rice. Then dump in some chopped up boneless raw chicken, a couple cut up Applegate andoulle sausage (or their turkey hot dogs depending on how "hot" the diners like their food - the andoulle is very spicy and only loses a little to the dish while the hot dogs pick up a bit of whatever bite the salsa offers) (and some raw shrimp if I can afford it.) Cook on low for at least 4 hours and you have a very easy, very yummy "gumbo".

on March 25, 2011

Good salsas are an amazing way to add flavor to many dishes (and so easy) ... chicken, fish, brown rice, quinoa, and more. So, buy them, buy them, buy them ... and then test them out with many of your dishes.

My family calls me the Salsa King because I use them on so many dishes.

I love the peach salsa and the medium!

on March 25, 2011

anything really spicy!

on March 25, 2011

I love the Chipotle Corn Salsa too!

on March 25, 2011

I think that the green salsa looks amazing, I'd love to try that out! Salsa is one of my favorite foods, and you're right, lots of flavor with little calories and a short ingredients to boot.

on March 25, 2011

Yum they all sound delicious but I am intrigued by the black bean in particular!

on March 25, 2011

I love the peach salsa

on March 25, 2011

peach salsa sounds really good!

on March 25, 2011

Being Texan, I'm shocked I haven't tried this yet. I've tried most jar salsas because few live up to the amazing fresh salsas that are in abundance here. I'm dying to try the Chipolte Corn Salsa. That would be heavenly on a salad.

on March 25, 2011

PEACH!! :P

on March 25, 2011

Oh man, Garlic Salsa! We are obsessed with garlic in my house! I'm making it my goal to ward off vampires :D

on March 25, 2011

Definitely peach. My favorite salsa is a pineapple one that Wegmans makes. I actually throw it on my salads instead of dressing. So good!

on March 25, 2011

Black bean it is for me!

on March 25, 2011

I would love to have your recipe for fresh homemade salsa.

on March 25, 2011

I would love to try the Peach Salsa - sounds yummy! Thanks!

on March 25, 2011

peach salsa is the best! it is making my mouth drool for some. what a great calorie saving ingredient full of flavor for any dish.

on March 25, 2011

Have you ever tried the Peach Salsa? Holy Party-in-your-Mouth. Only one store around here carries it and I totally stock up whenever I'm nearby. DELICIOUS!!

on March 25, 2011

These - especially peach - are so goo that you don't need any other food. . . Just a fork or spoon and the salsa will do just fine!

on March 25, 2011

I would love to try the pineapple and the medium! YUM!

on March 25, 2011

ohh, i want the mexican hot sauce! i love me some spicy goodness!

on March 25, 2011

The peach is divine. We eat it on wheat crackers with a little jalepeno relish or my aunt's favorite, with a little cream cheese. I would LOVE to try the garlic salsa. And though fearful, the Ghost salsa would be interesting (bet my husband would love it).

on March 25, 2011

I've only tried Mrs. Renfro's Green and Hot salsa, both of which I like more than most commercially available brands. Unfortunately, Mrs. Renfro's products are rarely available in my small town. I would love to try the Green Tomato Pickles and the Ghost Pepper Salsa!

on March 25, 2011

I'd like to try the raspberry chipotle. I grill a lot of chicken during the warm months and this would be a really great accompaniment!

on March 25, 2011

The mango habanero and raspberry chipotle salsas sound amazing!

on March 25, 2011

This sounds like a great addition to any meal. I would be very happy to win a sample.

on March 25, 2011

Wow, her combinations look amazing (raspberry chipotle, pomegranate? yes please!) but I'm a peach salsa girl at heart.

on March 25, 2011

I've tried Mrs. Renfro's green salsa and it was love at first bite. I had no idea the company made so many products. I'd love to try more.

on March 25, 2011

I love salsa!

on March 25, 2011

GREEN SALSA! for the longest time i would ALWAYS eat my burrito from this local burrito shop with their green salsa and it was freakin LOVE LOVE LOVE, though my taste buds usually complain at the end XD but then I moved and i never found green salsa that's as spicy and flavorful as that place's D:

So yeah, i would totally get the Green Salsa, since this one's made with jalapeno. I noticed the other green salsa i've had at other mexican restuarnts aren't even spicy!

on March 25, 2011

I think the chipotle corn sounds perfect!

on March 25, 2011

wow they all sound AMAZING!

i do love black bean salsa..

but i would love to try the raspberry chipotle

on March 25, 2011

Green! I love green way more than red when it comes to Mexican flavors. I'll always choose that. The Roasted salsa and the Black Bean salsa sounds like they'd be tied for second, though.

on March 25, 2011

It's gotta be peach!

on March 25, 2011

Peach Salsa is the best!!

on March 25, 2011

My favorite is Mrs. Renfro's Green Salsa!

on March 25, 2011

I tweeted your giveaway!

on March 25, 2011

Hands down the Raspberry Chipotle Salsa! Great with chicken!

on March 25, 2011

I don't like hot food but, I would enjoy the mild salsa. Their website says that the sweet salsas (peach, pineapple, etc.) will cut some of the heat and let you enjoy the flavor. I think those would be great on chicken! :)

on March 25, 2011

They are sound super yummy!! but it would be a toss up between the peach and the chipolte corn

on March 25, 2011

It would be hard to choose a favorite but the Peach and Chipotle Corn both sound great!

on March 25, 2011

I will try the pepper salsa!

on March 25, 2011

Yumm--the Pomegrante Salsa sounds delish!

on March 25, 2011

I love garlic, so I'd have to say the garlic salsa!

on March 25, 2011

Love the black bean salsa and would love to try the roasted salsa. I love every Mrs. Renfro's salsa I've ever had and I love that there are minimal ingredients and they taste so fresh!

on March 25, 2011

I live in Mexico part of the year. Now that I've tried it, I'll have to bring my own salsa with me! Mrs Renfro's is better than what I buy in Mex.

on March 25, 2011

I can't believe I just found the Chipotle Corn Salsa at my local store. I went out and got it after reading your blog. It tastes very good and the ingredients listed are healthy for you. Thank you Lisa for your recommendation.

on March 25, 2011

I had never heard of this... but the corn salsa and the green salsa sound so good. The gumbo recipe sounds great!

on March 25, 2011

Black bean (if I'm looking for spicy) or peach (if I want a little sweet). Yum!

on March 25, 2011

We eat alot of salsa in our house and I have to say the Black Bean is my favorite! A great quick dinner is a baked potato with salsa (any kind) low fat sour cream and a little cheddar cheese. Delicious and filling!

on March 25, 2011

the peach salsa sound delish to me!

on March 25, 2011

I've hot for the Black Bean!!!! I tend to like my salsa like my liquor: save the fruit for the cereal!! You Go, Snack Girl!!

on March 25, 2011

I love to add peach salsa to haddock fish and broil the fish. Also, I dump a jar of the green salsa in my crockpot with pork roast and a couple cloves of garlic for a wonderful entree to serve over yellow rice.

on March 25, 2011

Tequila Salsa

Sounds like a winning combo. I like salsa and I like tequila. Now if we could add tortilla chips that went get soggy in the salsa jar it would be even better.

on March 25, 2011

I love the peach salsa and the garlic salsa@

on March 25, 2011

I ♥ Mrs. Renfro's Peach & Pomegranate Salsas They are both my favorite!

on March 25, 2011

I love Mrs Renfro's Chipotle Corn Salsa, but my all time fav has to be the Green Salsa.

on March 25, 2011

I don't think I could pick just one! They all sound great!

on March 25, 2011

Love the black bean salsa!

on March 25, 2011

The tequilla and green salsa look delicious to me!

on March 25, 2011

Love the green hot salsa. Can't wait to try the Ghost salsa.

on March 25, 2011

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE salsa!!!!!! I think that it would be the medium salsa for me on a regular basis!!!

on March 25, 2011

I would love to try any of these salsa, but the chipotle corn salsa sounds good, also the habenero

on March 25, 2011

Chipotle Corn is by far the best salsa

on March 25, 2011

Black Bean Salsa!!

on March 25, 2011

The chipotle corn salsa sounds very good. I love corn in my mexican dishes.

on March 25, 2011

Roasted Salsa

on March 25, 2011

I am always a green salsa type of girl but the chipotle corn also sounds really good!

on March 25, 2011

There are so many things I miss about Texas after moving from there to New York, and, next to family, food tops the list. I'm not sure there's such thing as good salsa in NY, and I would be shocked to find something as amazing as Mrs. Renfro's peach salsa here.

on March 25, 2011

Oh golly gosh - even if I won I would not know which 4 to cheese. I would start with the peach though!!

on March 25, 2011

Anything with Black Beans makes it to the top of my list!!! I'd also love to try the peach! Sounds so yummy!! Can't wait to try some!

on March 25, 2011

I would love to try Chipotle Corn Salsa that is Hubby's favorite type of salsa.

on March 25, 2011

Corn salsa is amazing but I haven't seen the pomegranate one before--that's the next one I'm buying for sure!

on March 25, 2011

The Green salsa looks so yummy, and perfect to pour over a poached egg and black beans for a healthy huevo ranchero breakfast. Officially craving this for dinner!

on March 25, 2011

I love the peach, but I believe my son would adore the ghost chili salsa.

on March 25, 2011

Corn and black bean salsa is my favorite too. I love the stuff and have been known to eat it with eegs, chicken and pasta too!!

on March 25, 2011

I'm following you on twitter and just tweeted about this :)

on March 25, 2011

The garlic salsa sounds great!

on March 25, 2011

The Raspberry Chipotle Salsa is delicious and addicting! Open a jar of that and it is gone before you know it.

It would be so unfair to make me choose which Mrs. Renfro's are my fav's. I can not live without them!

on March 25, 2011

I would love to try the Peach Salsa! Yummy, love salsa.

on March 25, 2011

Gotta have the peach...they remind me of summer and that just makes me happy!!

on March 25, 2011

on March 25, 2011

Black Bean Salsa yum, yum in my tummy

on March 25, 2011

Garlic or black bean... maybe the chipotle corn...yum!

on March 25, 2011

on March 25, 2011

Mrs. Renfro's Medium Salsa is my style!

Thanks, Cindi

on March 26, 2011

I'd have to go with Pomegranate Salsa because I love pomegranates and I'll try anything once. Plus this brand has never led me astray!

on March 26, 2011

Ooooooo ... Tequila Salsa, definitely!!!!

on March 26, 2011

I love the black bean, but now I'm going to search for the green tomato pickles! YUMMY!

on March 26, 2011

I love the Green Salsa!!!!

on March 26, 2011

Mmmm. Salsa. Us Texas gals just love us some good salsa. I had tex-mex for lunch today at one of the ten-zillion mexican food restaurants in my area. I live near Ft. Worth so I'll have to go hunt this company down. I've never heard of them! For me it'd be the roasted salsa, black bean, peach, chipotle corn... or any of them would work for me. I'm not a huge super-hot-salsa fan. More of a medium heat and lots of flavor, are my faves. I like a few chips with my big bowl of salsa, instead of a little bowl of salsa with my chips, if you know what i mean! ;-)

on March 26, 2011

Roasted Salsa!

on March 26, 2011

Anything Garlic sign me up!!! I think I may have seen these at my local market recently but have stayed away from them because they just dont taste as fresh, but some of those flavors are far too intriguing not to try them!

on March 26, 2011

I would love to try the peach salsa. Sounds nice and summer-y!

on March 27, 2011

We really like the Peach salsa. We probably buy that flavor than any other of Mrs. Renfro's flavors.

on March 27, 2011

Black Bean Salsa is my favorite!

on March 27, 2011

The pineapple salsa sounds like something I could have with my scrambled tofu for breakfast. I already "liked" on facebook!

on March 27, 2011

I love green salsa and black bean salsa but I'd also pick out something unusual for me just to try.

on March 27, 2011

pineapple, definitely!

on March 27, 2011

We use an insane amount of salsa in our house. Between crockpot recipes and snacks for the kids and hubby, salsa is always in demand around here. I am always looking for a new and better salsa. I would love to try many of these flavors!

on March 28, 2011

I Am a mild salsa girl. YOur falvors all look scrumptious though. I think my fam would love to take that ghost pepper challenge. :)

on March 28, 2011

I am drooling all over the keyboard. Black Bean Salsa is a favorite. I'd love to try the Mango Habanero and Ghost Pepper Salsa.

on March 28, 2011

They all sound great, and I would be willing to try any and all.

on March 28, 2011

Raspberry Chipotle

on March 28, 2011

Peach salsa!

on March 28, 2011

I've always been a green salsa fan! The Chipotle Corn looks amazing too! Ok, they ALL look amazing :)

on March 29, 2011

I've been buying Mrs Renfro's salsa for years. I've tried the peach, mango, and pineapple, and the pineapple is BY FAR my favorite. I love eating with carrots, celery, or if I am feeling especially sinful, tortilla chips. Thank you Mrs. Renfro!

on March 29, 2011

Garlic Salsa all the way!!!

on March 29, 2011

Black bean sounds great....

on March 30, 2011

We've been loving the Raspberry Chipotle at our house for a long time.

on March 31, 2011

Habenero with lots of cilantro! Also, mango salsa goes great with cheese & crackers and fish.

on March 31, 2011

The chipotle Corn sounds amazing! I'd also really like to try the pomegranate. Yum!
