Pssst...Rosarita isn't just refried beans anymore

You really can't beat a good salsa. It's good for the munchies, good for drop-in company, and good in recipes. And considering it's made of mostly vegetables, you can consider salsa a healthy snack (just watch the sodium).

There's a new salsa in town. Well, only four towns, for now. LA, Dallas, Phoenix and Denver are rolling out three variations of Rosarita salsa, available at select Walmart and grocery stores. My household received 3 jars to test out: Mild, Medium and Hot, all made in Mexico.

(Sorry. Before I could get the camera out, Husband cracked open two of the varieties.)

I tried the Salsa Verde (Medium) on my recipe for Chicken-Sour Cream Enchiladas.

(Again, the Eaters got to it before the Picture-Taker did.)

So here's what my crack team of holiday testers had to say:

Mild: "Mom! It's spicy!" (from my children who have fairly adventurous palates.)

Medium: "Oooh! This is hot. Can I have some ice cream?"

Hot: "Love it. Has a slow heat that sneaks up on you."

The capsaicin dial has been turned up, making Rosarita an excellent choice for the adventurous tongue. If you're looking for a kick and you live in one of the lucky cities, pick up some Rosarita the next time you're in the Hispanic foods aisle.

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Rosarita and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate."
