The perfect salsa

Just in time for summer, here's my perfect salsa "recipe". Recipe is in quotes because you don't have to cook anything for this. You simply open up the jars and eat. That's my kind of cooking!!


1 Jar Pace Mild or Medium Picante Sauce
1 Jar Mrs. Renfro's Green Salsa

Pour a serving of Pace Picante Sauce into a serving bowl. Pour about 1/3 of that amount of Mrs. Renfro's green salsa into the middle of the bowl. DO NOT MIX. You will have a huge green spot in the middle of the red salsa. Serve with crispy, light tortilla chips, such as Santitas White Corn Tortilla Chips or, better yet, your locally made fresh tortilla chips.

With this arrangement, each consumer is able to scoop a little or a lot of the green salsa with the picante sauce according to taste. Perfect everytime!!

I know that it isn't "fashionable" to like a large brand salsa like Pace, but it's really very good. Great tomato, onion and pepper flavor with a hint of garlic and spice. The Mrs. Renfro's green salsa adds the heat with a strong jalapeno bite and a lot of complementary vegtable flavors.

I like the traditional picante sauces, you can go with the chunky stuff if you like.

I can eat a whole bag of chips at one sitting with this stuff. It is so freakin' good.

PS: If you are pouring over a dish, still keep the sauces separate until serving for customized heat for each person.

Speaking of jalapeno flavored food, Doritos recently started selling Jalapeno flavored cheese and cracker packs at Speedway gas stations for $.30 each. They are rather good and don't have too much of a bite to them -- just enough.
