Some of you have commented on the salsa. Please note that Herdez makes four kinds of salsa. Casera (translated homemade), verde (green), ranchera & taquera. I’ve never tried the ranchera version but in my opinion the verde and taquera are inedible. *shudder* I got the taquera by mistake once and said never again. It is made with tomatillos and was just not pleasing to my palate. Ok, it was downright repulsive, but obviously people like it or they wouldn’t make it.

The recipe above is my favorite way of eating it. The fresh cilantro definitely is a good add-on, if you like cilantro.

Let me know if you try that brand and if you like it. I think it is closer to the homemade than any other brand I’ve had, but it is a bit different than salsas made by the other companies.

  1. Mmmhmm! I’m not a salsa connoisseur but Weston would eat whatever you gave him made out of salsa, and the hotter, the better! I love fresh cilantro…was introduced to it on our first trip to Russia. I have a question for you….I can’t see the photos on Vicki’s blog…do you have any idea why not? I’m eager to see them!

I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to leave a comment.
