It's salsa time again

I'm going to be trying another kind of salsa today. It's called "Salsa Diablo" from Desert Pepper.
I got it at my local grocery store for $4.19.

The ingredients are as follows:
Tomato Puree, Tomatoes, New Mexican Hot Red Chile Puree, Green Chile Peppers, Jalapeno peppers, Fresh Onions, Vinegar, Salt, Lemon juice, Garlic, Spices, and Cilantro.

I know, I know, it has onions in it, and I hate onions, but I'm hoping they're not too noticeable. I'm also hoping it actually qualifies as "Hot."

Here goes.

Blah. It's not hot, and it doesn't have much flavor. I taste no garlic, no cilantro, and no spices. Just tomatoes and vinegar and maybe a tiny bit of jalapeno.
Very disappointing.

Interesting. Your review is just about exactly what people say about my blog after trying it for the first time....

Whall: At least you never falsely advertised that your blog tasted like garlic and cilantro.

But hey - the label says "fat free"!!!

Morgen: Indeed it does. So I guess I didn't gain any weight while eating it. Of course, there were the tortilla chips....

I look at this as a positive and re-affirming experience for you. See, if you had enjoyed the salsa then you would have been forced to continue eating something that is made with onions.

Travis: Good point. Thanks for pointing out the bright side. :)
