As you may recall, my husband hails from Texas.
Did you know that salsa has its own food group there?
We met and married in the Lonestar State, and the first few times Mr. Native Texan traveled north with me, he was quite sad to discover that not all restaurants bring out complimentary chips and salsa while you wait for your food.
Fast forward to our Strange, New Dietary Journey. Imagine me breaking the news to Mr. Native Texan that not only were his favorite brands of salsa NOT gluten-free, I was having trouble finding ANY salsa that met our new gluten-free, sugar-free requirements. I did manage to locate two different salsas that fit the bill, but they tasted terrible. 🙁
That was not a happy time at the Yankee Homestead.
So when we discovered Amy’s Salsa, there was much jubliant rejoicing. Here was a salsa with clean ingredients, readily available at our local grocery store as well as on Amazon and Vitacost! And the best part was that it TASTED GOOD!
Since Mr. Native Texan is the only one at the Yankee Homestead who prefers his salsa más caliente, we buy the mild version.
This is the best price I’ve found, on Amazon with free shipping from Vitacost (if you order $49 worth of eligible Vitacost items, which amounts to 9 jars of salsa).
What’s your salsa story?
