I was given product for my review. All opinions are my own.
So, we are in the midst of March Madness, which means many of us will be filling up on plenty of snacks for game time. So let’s talk Salsa. The people at SalsaCrazy, who make allegedly amazing Salsa dance instructional DVDs, actually have a line of spicy condiments. They sent me their two salsas to review: Dominate the Dance Floor Habanero Salsa, and Burn the Dance Floor Serrano salsa.
In spite of my love for spicy foods, I am not well-versed in which peppers are the spiciest. I know Habanero peppers are hot, but I wasn’t sure if I had tried Serrano peppers.
So I tried these salsas in order of what I thought would be least spicy to most spicy. I am a person of words, so I figured that Dominating the Dance Floor would not be as harsh as burning the whole thing down. So I tried the Habanero salsa first, on a black bean tortilla chip.
Holy criminy, this stuff was spicy. So spicy that I immediately had to cut it with yogurt in order to eat.
Now, I am no stranger to spicy foods. I lived in Louisiana, where I do believe hot pepper sauce is sold over-the-counter in pharmacies as eye drops. But holy schneikies, this stuff was – WHOAH! It’s got great ingredients – corn, onions, tomatoes, but those habanero peppers – whooo-howdy! But if you love a good challenge, go for it. I still eat this salsa but very sparingly.
So then, I tried the Burn The Dance Floor Serrano Salsa. I was worried that I would have to handle the stuff with gloves because of my prior experience. So I poured it into a tiny bowl and scooped it up with a tortilla chip. Surprisingly, it was still spicy, but very suited to my taste.
The flavor of both salsas is amazing. They aren’t too chunky, so I recommend eating them with scoop-shaped tortilla chips. I’m positive they’d also be amazing in your favorite latin-inspired dishes. I am not a cook anymore, so I went straight for the snacking here.
So, let’s say these salsas were plot devices in horror movies. The Burn The Dance Floor Salsa would be the fire on the torches that scared Frankenstein’s Monster all the way up that hill. The Dominate The Dance Floor Salsa would be the fire that burned all of Freddy Krueger’s skin off and turned him into an extremely violent spirit with a knife-hand who gives fatal nightmares to teens.
Now, everybody knows somebody who is a salsa afficionado. These would make a great gift for that special someone who loves a good salsa and a bit of a challenge. The Salsas can be purchased at Amazon.com as follows:
So good luck, and try not to burn your face off!
