Sponsor Spotlight: Mrs. Renfro's Salsas

 What I love most about Mrs. Renfro's Salsas is that you can read the ingredients. The salsas are made with natural ingredients like tomatoes, water, onion, tomato puree, distilled vinegar, brown sugar, corn starch, sweet green peppers, cilantro, jalapeno peppers, salt, garlic and spices. They always tell you if you can't pronounce it then you shouldn't eat it. If you can pronounce it then dig in. I was sent four flavors of Mrs Renfro's salsas to try out including their newest flavor Ghost Pepper Salsa. 

Pineapple salsa
This salsa has actual pineapple chunks in it as well as crushed pineapple and pineapple juice. I honestly didn't think I would like this salsa, I'm the type that likes just normal tomato salsa. It has a bit of a tangy taste and even though it is marked as medium heat it really isn't that hot at all. My 1 year old loved the pizza I made with this salsa. 

Pomegranate salsa
 This salsa has a bit of a sweet flavor with a hint of chipotle. I used this in a wrap with chicken and black beans and it added a little something extra.

Black Bean salsa
This one is like your everyday salsa but with black beans. I really enjoy eating this salsa. The flavor is just right and the black beans make it more filling.

Ghost Pepper salsa
The Ghost Pepper salsa is made from the hottest pepper in the world, with a rating of 1,001,304 Scoville Heat Units which is 300 times hotter than a jalapeno. To give you an idea of how hot this pepper is it has been used for pepper spray, hand grenades, and smoke bombs. The jar comes with its own warning of Scary Hot.

When I first tried this salsa I only took a little taste. I figured for me to give this a fair review I should have a full bite of it. At first the heat doesn't hit you but then slowly builds up in intensity. Your tongue begins to hurt. Your lips will burn. The feeling will last a little more than five minutes and even then your mouth still doesn't feel right. I cant say this is hotter than the actual pepper itself but it is the hottest thing I have ever eaten.

I have included a video of my husband trying this salsa. He does not like Hot foods and his reaction is priceless.
