This salsa is fantastic! Rich and spicy. It has a very High-Moderate heat level. A touch of Cinnamon helps to tone down the heat and gives the salsa a festive spirit. Cinnamon? Yeah, I know, weird. It really is not overpowering, it is just a touch, and that touch will add a tremendous depth of character to the overall flavor. It is one of our most popular salsas!
Habaneros have this wonderfully fruity, peppery flavor that makes a fantastic salsa. Not just hot, but a glorious blazing heat that lingers on your tongue and mingles there with all the heavenly traditional spices of this exceptional salsa. A very rich flavored heat without being overpowering. El Diablo has a lingering residual endorphin rush. A great hot salsa! Try mixing a half cup with a cup of sour cream and pour over an omelets for a fiery breakfast. Order some today and you’ll soon be tasting the finest habanero salsa available. Not so hot that it kills your taste buds for an hour. We just don’t make that kind of stuff.
American Prickly Pear Cactus has been a part of the cuisine of every culture that has inhabited the Southwest Sonoran Desert. Rich and nutritious; packed with health giving vitamins and minerals, cactus pads have sustained the indigenous people for centuries. We have made this salsa with a wonderful tart-base of tomatillos, jalapenos, garlic and spices.
We then added a generous helping of prickly pear cactus. No cactus stickers! Just the tender flesh. It adds a wonderful smoothness and makes this salsa a fantastic accompaniment to chips, chicken, chowder or pork chops. A great all around eating salsa.
