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."

Ready?
Here goes.

Sigh.
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. :)
