Local favorite, Salsa Me Krazy, now has a new retail home at Marsh Supermarkets. SMK has been an instant hit amongst salsa lovers and condiment fans alike since it debuted a few years ago. With it’s fresh, rich and tangy flavor, no preservatives and family backstory- this salsa is really making a name for itself.
Deciding to become an entrepreneur is a big decision and one that Indiana resident Brenda Gay has thrown herself into without looking back. She refined the recipe, found a commercial kitchen to make, pack and ship the salsa and she pounds the pavement to find retail locations. Anyone who has done this before knows how much work this is. I am only too happy to share her good news and offer up a gift pack of salsa for YOU to try!
How do YOU enjoy salsa? On tacos, with chips or in recipes? For me it is all of the above. I use it weekly in some form or another. Here are just a few ways you can enjoy salsa in YOUR kitchen:
-Bruschetta: instead of diced tomatoes from a can mix a few tablespoons of salsa with a tablespoon of diced sweet onion, and a pinch of dried cilantro. This makes a great topping for toasted baguette sliced and an accompaniment to soups and stews.
-Mac N Cheese: Add 1 cup of salsa to a finished recipe of mac n cheese. It adds color and flavor to the traditionally cheesy dish.
-Pizza: instead of a pizza sauce use salsa instead.
-BBQ Topper: Instead of ketchup or BBQ sauce use salsa to top your grilled items instead.
Burgers: Add 1 cup of salsa to 1 pound of ground meat, shape into 4 patties and grill. This keeps the meat more moist.
-Soups: Add salsa to vegetable soups or any soup or stew that would benefit from this zesty kick!
-Dips: Yes this is an obvious one but have you ever poured 1 cup of salsa over 1 block of cream cheese? Heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 1-1.5 minutes. Remove from microwave and pour the salsa over the top. This is a quick and easy way to put an appetizer out for unexpected guests.
-Shredded Chicken: In a slow cooker add 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken to 1 jar of salsa. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, shred with a fork and serve on buns or tortillas.
-Guacamole: Add 1 jar of salsa to 2 mashed avocados. Fold together and serve with dipables.
These are just a FEW of the many ways you can integrate salsa into your cuisine but I would like to hear more.
