Pepper Dog Salsa Verde
Salsa verde (Spanish for "green salsa") is usually hard to find outside of a Mexican restaurant - until now. Thanks to the folks who brought us Pepper Dog Salsas (southwestern style red salsas in Mild, Medium and Hot), you can now enjoy authentic, all-natural salsa verde at home without going through the trouble of making it yourself. Made with fresh tomatillos, peppers, cilantro, garlic and spices (and no onions or vinegar), Pepper Dog Salsa Verde is brimming with flavor and medium-hot fire. If you enjoy Mexican or Tex-Mex food, a jar of this stuff is essential to top off your chicken enchiladas and other favorites. Less sweet than tomato-based red salsas, salsa verde has a mouthwatering tang that works particularly well with cheese-rich dishes. Of course, you can also use it for dipping chips, either "straight" or blended with cream cheese to tone down the heat. Salsa verde also complements grilled meats, chicken and fish, and even scrambled eggs and hamburgers. In fact, it adds a nice touch to all sorts of dishes - for lunch today, I heated up some of last night's leftover fish with peppers, onions and garlic, and served that over rice with a big dollop of Pepper Dog Salsa Verde. YUM! If you've never tried salsa verde, or if you've been looking for one to enjoy at home, then you need to get yourself a jar of Pepper Dog Salsa Verde.
