Calling all vegan salsa lovers! We have 4 recipe ideas just for you!
Okay, first thing is first we are thrilled to announce that our Spicy Habanero Salsa is now available for our salsa fans who love some heat! Now although we are extremely excited about Spicy Habanero rolling out, we here at Sweet Kickin Salsa have different heat levels because let’s be honest, salsa is not a one size fits all type of sauce. Read on to see which of our salsas is right for you, oh and we included some easy recipe ideas to make using our all of our salsas. Hop over here to take a look at our awesome breakfast burrito recipe.
The Levels of Heat
Mild salsa adds great flavor without the heat, perfect for small children or anyone else who just isn’t into spicy foods right now, or ever. We still sparingly put jalapenos into our Mild Sweet Kickin Salsa, but they add a minimal amount of heat for those with tender taste buds.
Medium salsa is a solid choice if you don’t know which salsa to choose: it adds flavor and heat, but won’t overpower. Are you looking for a flavorful addition to your tacos or burritos? Medium salsa all the way.
Hot salsa is great on eggs or richer dishes with a lot of cheese. The richness of dairy products balances out some of the heat, without sacrificing that extra kick you only get from hot salsa.
Taco Pizza Bread
Preheat your oven to 350. Cut French bread into slices, place on a baking sheet and top each slice with a spoonful (or more if you like) of our mild salsa, then layer on cheese, fresh sliced veggies like mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and olives, add meat (or skip it—this is good either way), and add more cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and bread is crispy. Let it cool before devouring, even though the salsa is mild, it just came out of a hot oven! This is great for picky eaters or large groups since each slice can be personalized to taste.
Tasty Chicken Nachos
Marinate chicken in our medium salsa for 2 hours (up to overnight). Cook chicken on the stove until it’s done, shred chicken, add more salsa to the cooking pan, along with white beans, and heat it all up. Layer on a baking sheet: tortilla chips, shredded cheese, chicken mixture, diced onions, black olives; repeat until you’re out of ingredients or you think you have a high enough pile of nachos! Broil for 5-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and edges are crisp. Top with sour cream and more medium salsa. Eat up.
Lazy Huevos Rancheros
Huevos rancheros done right are a beautiful thing—but what if you don’t have time to do it right? Heat up some refried beans on the stove, fry a couple of eggs in a separate pan and warm tortillas in the microwave. Get your sour cream and salsa out of the fridge, or open a fresh jar (I like our new Hot Habanero on this one!), and slice an avocado. Once the eggs are done, and the beans and tortillas are warm, assemble: on a plate, layer tortillas with refried beans and fried eggs, then top with salsa, sour cream, and avocado slices. It ain’t authentic by a long shot, but it’s delicious.
No matter which intensity of salsa you prefer, Sweet Kickin Salsa now has a heat level for everyone. If you like hot, hot heat, try our new Hot Habanero: you won’t be disappointed! We have this available in our online store in a 6 or 12 pack!
