Salsa sol del rio

This is a product review of Salsa Sol Del Rio

We were at whole foods the other day. I guess it was around lunch time and the store was full of little stations of sample heaven. Wonderful selection of cheeses were what I was really enjoying :) In the vegetable section, there was a rather large sample station of this salsa, Salsa Sol de rio. There was a man assisting the tasting, and we spoke briefly about his salsa. He starts his salsa with fire roasted green chille, resulting in his salsa to be less red than others. But Holy Mary... This stuff is Gooood. I am having a very difficult time trying to describe HOW good it is. It's not like the salsa taste "green"... it's just all around delicious. I don't know why anyone would want the other kind. Yes, it is locally made in GA, so you will find it in the very bottom row of the salsa section. The guy said they had JUST started to sell it at Whole Foods. My jar was $5.99, at bit pricier than others-but I don't eat chips and salsa that often, so when I feel like having some salsa, I will reach for this one.

I bought the medium, but the other flavor I tried -mango salsa- was also scrumptious. If you've never tried a green chille based salsa before, I highly recommend that you do. I will not go back to the red stuff.
