Lucky Habanero Salsa

A week or so ago Linda Saenz, The Salsa Lady, dropped some of her salsas off at my work to taste test. Made with fire-roasted chilies and fresh-cut veggies these salsas are fresh and flavorful. Lucky Habanero Salsa comes in 2 varieties, "Original Hot" which has a good amount of heat, and "Medium" to provide a salsa with a medium level of spiciness for those who need to tone down the heat a little. They also have a salsa verde called "San Blas" and an extra hot variety coming soon to store shelves called "Dragon Lips."

In the interest of full-disclosure this product was provided free to me. I had about 5-7 chips myself and was able to sample and enjoy each salsa before my co-workers gobbled the remainder of it up. One of them practically guzzled the Dragon Lips salsa.

Any idea how "soon" the Dragon Lips will be out?

Linda says, "For now the San Blas and the Dragon Lips and the Guacamole can only be purchased at the OC Marketplace on the weekends. The OC Marketplace is held at the fairgrounds every weekend from 7-4 on Sat. and Sun.!"

Thanks

p.s. great salsa, like the dragon lips myself.

Looks like they're called "Gracias A Dio." The Salsa Lady said the chips are also made locally.

Border Town Salsa is my favorite I've found so far. It is in some grocery stores, but can be bought online. They say its restaraunt quality and it is. http://bordertownfoods.com is where to buy it. Try this if you like great taste at all heats and it is great to cook with as well. Love it.
