Minnesota Folk: Are you fans of Salsa Lisa?? [moved from Midwest board]
sold in the refrigerator section of most supermarkets. made right here in Minneapolis. Garrison Keillor is a big fan. i think it is about as good as store bought salsa gets. I'll eat it right out of the jar without chips. I get the medium almost always. one time got the hot but there were all these green specks-- hot pepper i presume-- that did not look appetizing. just read that they are now distributed in 25 states.
I've never seen it in stores. I'll keep in eye out next time!
A perfect Minnesota-made chip to go along with it would be the tortilla chips from Whole Grain Milling—they're AMAZING (and made in Welcome, MN). Like a cross between a tortilla chip and pie crust. Here's where I heard about them first:
I bought mine from Seward Co-op. SO GOOD! Get some. NOW!
I love SalsaLisa! A tablespoon or two mashed up with an avocado makes great guacamole. No need to add anything else. It's wonderful with fresh tortilla chips from El Burrito Mercado.
The tomatillo green chile salsa is also a fav of mine. I could skip the chips and and eat it with a spoon. They also have a chipotle version that is quite tasty when you're in the mood for a smokier salsa.
My boyfriend and I are always adding heat to our food so we opted for the "Real Hot" variety once. Holy crap that stuff was HOT! I was impressed :)
