Mrs. Renfro's Hot Sauce Review and Giveaway...

ABCD Diaries
2010 Holiday Gift Guide:
Entertaining
We recently had the opportunity to review several flavors of Mrs. Renfro's salsas.


About the salsas we reviewed:
-Black Bean Salsa
This thick salsa goes great on baked potatoes – also makes a great base for homemade southwestern pizza.


-Garlic Salsa
Made with fresh garlic and fire-roasted garlic puree – a garlic-lovers’s delight.


-Mexican Hot Sauce
Similar to our classic salsa with a south-of-the-border kick - add to just about anything!
-Ghost Pepper Salsa
The ghost pepper takes on many forms - pepper spray, hand grenades, smoke bombs… and now salsa! Made from the hottest pepper in the world, our Ghost Pepper Salsa will frighten your taste buds and leave you screaming for more. We dare you to give it a try… this Ghost Pepper Salsa is scary hot!


What we thought: We love, Love, LOVE Mrs. Renfro's Salsas!! The black bean was very mild, but flavorful and especially kid-friendly. The kiddos devoured it:) The Mexican hot sauce was a pretty tasty salsa with a super smooth texture. The garlic salsa was delicious as a dip and on our favorite dishes. However, the big deal here was the Ghost Pepper salsa. It was definitely spicy, a little too much for me straight, but B absolutely LOVED it!! He is a connoisseur of spicy sauces and his complaint is that you usually have to sacrifice flavor for spiciness. This is definitely not the case with Mrs. Renfro's Ghost Pepper Salsa...it had a wonderful flavor AND the spiciness B loves:) It is hands down his new favorite salsa and I'm sure he will be a Mrs. Renfro's customer for life:) If you are looking for quality salsas for your holiday menu, we definitely recommend Mrs. Renfro's, whether you like it mild or super spicy...there is something for every salsa lover:) ABCD Diaries gives Mrs. Renfro's salsas an A+!!

Buy It: Find these delicious salsas at your local grocery store or mass merchandiser!!

  1. I am really curious about the ghost pepper salsa. I love hot foods. Have you tried to put some of their salsa in chili? It is really good.

  4. Simply LOVE the Garlic - nice big chunks of garlic surrounded by the love and care of the tomatoes and other tasty ingredients that make up a jarful of fun and delight over our taste-buds :). Love putting it on our scrambled eggs on a Saturday morning, or on a veggie burger - we replace ketchup with Mrs. Renfro's salsa every opportunity we get. The only salsa good enough for the east coast and the rest of the world!

  5. We are on a adventure to try the ghost pepper salsa - would love to give it a go in my wife's cooking. She makes some fantastic dinners with exotic spices and I would love to let her replace those spices with Mrs. Renfro's ghost pepper salsa. Yummyyyyyyyy :)
