Rosarita Salsa: A Most Delicious Review!


Oh my goodness, do I love salsa! LOVE IT. Can Never get enough of it!! One of my most favorite ways to enjoy salsa is mixed in with my scrambled eggs in the morning (yes, I am Irish....but do not mess with my salsa, ok??)

So when I was asked to review the new line of Rosarita Salsas...well, try to imagine how fast I was clicking away on my keyboard as I replied back "Yes!!" LOL.

The delicious Rosarita salsas come in three ranges of mild to hot- Mild Salsa Mexicana, Medium Salsa Verde and Hot Salsa Taquera. When eating salsa straight with chips, I go for the mild usually, or a mix of mild and medium. But when using salsa in cooking, I go straight for the hot stuff! So I was delighted that we received all three salsas to try out!

A super easy yet delicious recipe is boneless chicken breast combined with Salsa Verde in the crock-pot. You can pretty much combine ingredients as you like, but here is a recipe as well that I happily recommend:

  • 2 cups of canned Rosarita refried beans
  • Rosarita Salsa
  • 2 packages tostadas (6-inch diameter)
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 4 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup Queso Fresco (fresh Mexican cheese)
  • 1 large, firm ripe avocado, pared, pitted, sliced
  • ½ cup sour cream
Directions
  • Heat refried beans
  • Spread onto tostadas
  • Apply thin layer of shredded chicken
  • Top with thin layer of lettuce
  • Top with salsa
  • Sprinkle cheese/garnish with cream and avocados if desired. We skip the avocado here, and substitute vegetarian-style chicken for the real chicken as well. But it is fantastic and oh so easy!
Rosarita has a great well-known line of products, especially their number one selling refried beans, and I am delighted with their new salsas now. But take note--Their new salsa is only available in four cities — LA, Dallas, Phoenix, and Denver — at select Walmart and grocery stores currently. If you do not live in those cities, I am so sorry but I cannot send you any of mine (remember, hands off my salsa!!) LOL.
