We eat a lot of salsa in our house. There is usually a jar in the fridge and two to three backups in the pantry. We put that ish on everything.

Tacos. Burritos. Eggs. Chips. Salad.

I am always willing to try new salsa. And this week I was lucky enough to receive a box of salsa from Sam’s Famous Salsa. We happened to be having carne asada tacos for dinner that night so the timing was perfect!

I immediately opened the hot because well that is always a favorite in our house. Everyone in this house likes things hot, probably more so than most people. Sam’s Famous Salsa is delicious but for us, the hot was more like medium. It could use a little more kick for us but most people would consider it hot. The flavor is delicious and I love the texture. It reminded me a lot of homemade salsa.

I also had it the next day with some tortilla chips and it seemed to be a little hotter than on the tacos. Maybe it just needed a day to “air out”.

This weekend I will try it on scrambled eggs.

I haven’t tried the medium and mild but will get to that soon as we’ve gone through almost all the hot in a few days!

I love the marketing material they sent along with the salsas. The colors are bold and bright and it has a modern feel to it while staying true to the companies Tarahumara Indian roots. Plus who doesn’t love a mild salsa that is described as “all of the mmmm a with non of the ow”? Brillant. And hilarious.

Sam’s Famous Salsa is gluten-free, low sodium, and contains no artificial preservatives. Find Sam’s in the deli section, not the aisle, and be sure to keep it in your fridge!

Disclosure: I received salsa in exchange for a blog post. All opinions are my own and I will tell you what I really think about any product.
