Let’s Talk Salsa! (Giveaway)


May is national Salsa month! Woo-hoo! I don’t know about your family but salsa is a staple in our family, it is right up there with eggs and coffee (coffee being #1, eggs #2, and salsa #3…although, what’s the point of having eggs if there is no salsa? Right!? So, let’s make that salsa #2 and eggs #3).  

Salsa tastes amazing on everything or simply by itself. There is no shame in standing in front of the fridge with the doors open sneaking a spoonful of salsa. All I ask is that you be respectful of others & plan ahead, if you want 3 spoonsful then grab 3 spoons, don’t use the same spoon each time.  

Salsa is like a magic potion that can transform the worst dishes into something spectacular. I can’t tell you how many times I have just royally messed up dinner, undercooked, overcooked, burnt it, seasoned it with the wrong seasoning, you name it and I have probably done it, but thankfully salsa saves dinner every time! So, if for no other reason, have salsa on hand for the next time you burn dinner…just keep it right next to your fire extinguisher. Haha!

My latest salsa obsession….salsa in a baked avocado! It taste amazing! Thanks Floating Kitchen for the inspiration…and this pic, this is her delicious meal…mine burnt. No need to worry, the salsa saved the meal but it didn’t look as beautiful as hers. You seriously have to try this!! I also like my avocados with a huge heaping spoonful of Dei Fratelli seasoned diced Tomatoes…bake at 400 degrees for 8 minutes, remove, & drizzle with balsamic vinegar, so good!!!!  Just make certain you set your timer. 😉

Stuffed-Avocados-2

Here are some fun facts about salsa:

  • Salsa dates back to the ancient Aztecs, as early as 5200 B.C., where they would combine chili peppers and tomatoes into a sauce and serve with meat.
  • The hottest salsa reigns in more than one million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) compared to a Tabasco sauce, which only brings in 2,500-5,000 SHU.
  • Chili pepper-based salsas contain capsaicin, which has been shown to reduce inflammation!
  • Many salsas are tomato based, which mean they contain lycopene that has heart-protecting properties!

There are so many different types of salsas, Chili, Cherry, Corn, Mango, Black Bean, etc. it is fascinating! But sometimes the very best is the kind you make together as a family. Here is a great recipe to try with yours….the Dei Fratelli Secret Salsa. The secret is the Dei Fratelli Chopped Mexican Tomatoes & Jalapenos which add the perfect kick! (shhh)

Secret Salsa recipe

Ingredients:

2 cans Dei Fratelli Chopped Mexican Tomatoes & Jalapeños

5 – 8 Roma tomatoes

2 – 3 bunches Green onions, chopped

1 – 2 Red sweet onions, chopped

1 Lime

1 bunch Fresh cilantro, chopped

1 clove Fresh garlic, minced

1 small Jalapeño

Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients except lime, cilantro, salt, and pepper and jalapeno in a blow. Add cilantro last and salt and pepper to taste. Cut the ends of the jalapeno and leave whole in the bowl. Salsa tastes best if it has a few hours to mix flavors in the refrigerator before it is served. Serves 6-8.

Don’t have time to wait for those flavors to marinate? Don’t worry, Dei Fratelli to the rescue!! Dei Fratelli has 2 different salsa options. The Original Salsa Medium and Original Salsa Mild. Salsa Medium boasts exceptional flavors of their vine-ripened tomatoes and jalapeno peppers boost the zest level of the original salsa. The flavor is perfected with an ideal blend of only the best peppers, onions, and garlic. The Original Mild Salsa consist of sturdy diced tomatoes that add more body and a delightful flavor that transforms everyday to perfection with just the right amount of peppers, onions, and garlic. Both taste amazing! but don’t take my word for it! You can get your hands on your own bottle at your local Publix, Harris Teeter, Piggly Wiggly, and Wal-Mart stores. And be sure to enter the giveaway!!!

Dei Fratelli Giveaway!

deifratelliOh the possibilities!! Salsa, their AH-mazing pizza sauce (my kids will only eat the Dei Fratelli pizza sauce when we make pizzas…I have created monsters! Haha!), unbelievably delish spaghetti sauce, the diced can tomatoes taste so fresh I have used them in place of  tomatoes in some recipes (why waste all that time washing and dicing when Dei Fratelli did it for me, no brainer!?), and the tomato sauce, Italian sauce, and crushed tomatoes have been really helpful and accommodate our new and improved healthy eating lifestyle. ALL this could be yours!
