Pace has a new line of jarred salsas out. Triple Pepper Salsa, Pico de Gallo, Salsa Verde, and a Mexican Four Cheese Salsa con Queso.
The first one I tried is their Triple Pepper Salsa, featuring green chili, serrano and guajillo peppers.
Now, I’m not a big fan of jarred salsas. Most usually taste… well, “jarry”. But I think they have a winner here with their Triple Pepper Salsa!
For jarred salsa, this stuff is great. Nice thick texture (think gloppy taco sauce), with a great dark smokey flavor, and a nice medium to medium-hot heat level.
But I don’t know why they call it Triple Pepper because in addition to the green chilis, serrano and guajillo peppers, it also has jalapeno and ancho chili peppers. I guess Quintuple Pepper Salsa isn’t as marketable.
Anyway, if I had to reach for a bottle of salsa at the supermarket, for a quickie fix to bring salsa to a party, or just for snacking on at home… this new line of Pace products is very promising. Especially this Triple Pepper Salsa. Dip your chips in this salsa, or drizzle some on a mexican pizza, or pour some on tacos to kick things up a bit.
Ingredients: crushed tomatoes (water, concentrated crushed tomatoes), diced tomatoes in tomato juice, fresh jalapeno peppers, green chili peppers, balsamic vinegar, serrano peppers, guajillo and ancho chili peppers, salt, jalapeno pepper puree, dehydrated onions, spice, garlic, distilled vinegar and citric acid.
I plan to review the other salsas in this new line soon. Stay tuned.
