Herdez for the Win (salsa business)
I have tried a lot of different salsa’s over the years and I recently came across this brand and I LOVE it. It’s simple and delicious. My two favorite things about this salsa is 1. it is DELICIOUS, if you are not eating fresh salsa this is my next favorite and 2. it only has 5 ingredients tomatoes, onions, serrano peppers, iodized salt and cilantro (this is for the red salsa the green salsa has 6 ingredients, the green salsa does have xanthan gum in it which I don’t love but the red salsa does not). I love that they are clean (meaning not full of processed cruddy added ingredients) and I love that they taste delicious. My local grocery store sells this salsa and so does Wal-Mart and it is the cheapest there. My Target sells the salsa verde but not the red salsa.
Here’s a couple suggestions on how to use the salsa:
Try the red salsa in place of dressing on your next salad, you won’t need any other dressing and this is super healthy and delicious, I love it on my salads.
Cook a spaghetti squash and top the squash with this salsa. (I will do a post on spaghetti squash soon)
Throw 4-5 chicken breasts in your crock pot. Lightly salt and pepper this chicken and then put 1.5-2 cups of the salsa verde on top of the chicken. Cook on low for 6-7 hours until chicken is fully cooked and shreds easily. When the chicken is done shred it up and use it on top of taco salad, in tacos, in burritos etc. It’s delicious and easy. It’s one of my favorite meals lately.
