The hottest salsa you ever dared to try

If you cannot remember, it wasn't that hot.


Commenters on the S-R's Facebook page have suggested that my request for recommendations about salsa brands reflects poorly on my lifestyle choices.

Apparently it would be better to make my own salsa. Much better.

Perhaps. But as I mull this, I am put in mind of a line uttered by the long-suffering Mr. Bennet in Jane Austen's “Pride and Prejudice.”

“And yet, I am unmoved.”

Salsa recommendations sought

The company that makes the salsa we've been using at my house for years must be under bold new leadership.

Because, in short order, they apparently tampered with the recipe in a disastrous way. There was a recall. And then the stuff simply stopped showing up on grocery shelves.

My guess? Layoffs claimed the people who actually knew how to make it.

So anyway, we are looking for a new salsa brand. We're holding tryouts as we speak.

So far, there has been a lot of “Thank you…NEXT!”

You know. Too watery. Too mushy. Too something.

Got a recommendation?

It doesn't have to be so hot it could be used as a solvent in a foundry. But I would prefer that it be made locally. I'm willing to be flexible about just how we define that.
