I know, it’s a mouthful. That’s what she said. And it’s been a while since you, our sexy Heatards, have heard from me. I’d apologize, but I really don’t care. (This is where I would put a smiley face if I was a 12 yr old girl)
Anyway, this Scroturday eve, treat yourself to this review of Casa De Ruiz – Church Street Cafe‘s Original Restaurant Recipe Hot Salsa. This salsa happens to be the winner of a first place 2012 Scovie award for All Natural Salsa. I can attest, this is good stuff. Having opened it only a day and a half ago, the jar is already almost gone. I’d blame nachos, but we all know I just want to blame Canada.
Tomato, Jalapeno, Yellow Hot, Onion, Cilantro, Oregano, Garlic Powder, Salt, Vinegar.
I definitely have a new favorite salsa, and I could tell when I opened the jar. With the sealed jar, the innards looked a bit soupy, wet even. I wasn’t quite impressed. After removing the lid, however, I was greeted with a sweet, savory smell while staring into the mouth of a lumpy goddess of perfect consistency. I know that doesn’t make much sense as an analogy, but deal with it. I call it sexy salsa.
In the heat category, despite it’s blatant labeling of ‘Hot’, I have to say ‘Not.’ In fact, I couldn’t give this much above a medium. I want to give it a mild, but there’s a detectable kick from the jalapenos, so I’m going with medium. As to flavor, I can’t not give my new favorite salsa a notable. And as a side note, I’m completely serious when I say this is the best salsa I’ve ever had. Buy it, and enjoy folks!
