Herdez Salsa Casera and Ranchera Review

Herdez Salsas are great go-to’s for quick, mexican sauce and salsa flavor. These are 2 cans of sauce you should have in your pantry for a quick fix of fresh tasting salsa goodness!

Herdez Salsa Casera Mexicana Picante – Casera means “homemade”. This salsa is thin and chunky, like a pico de gallo.  Made with tomatoes, onions, serrano peppers, salt and cilantro… it’s a simple salsa that works on everything you can imagine.  Eggs, tacos, pizza and as a dipping salsa with tortilla chips.  It’s a quick, out of the can salsa that just works. Heat Level = medium

Herdez Salsa Ranchera Mexicana – This sauce is much more pureed and thick and dark. It truly is a “sauce” and not a salsa. Comprised of tomatoe puree, jalapenos, vinegar, anchos, onions, cascabels, garlic, salt, oil, bay leaves and spices… it’s a thick, delicious sauce that is great on enchiladas, tacos, steaks, nachos or any food where you want a thick, deep dark hot sauce poured on. I’m having it on a baked potato tonite! Heat Level = medium hot

Ingredients: Salsa Casera: tomatoes, onions, serrano peppers, iodized salt and cilantro

Ingredients: Salsa Ranchera: tomatoe puree, jalapeno peppers, vinegar, ancho peppers, onions, cascabel peppers, garlic, iodized salt, soybean oil, bay leaves, spices and 0.1% of sodium benzoate as preservative

  1. Salsa Casera is my favorite salsa of all time.

  2. FYI: Salsa is spanish for sauce. So all sauces are salsas and vice-versa.

  3. @GenghisPhlip – I know. It’s crazy what the 2 languages mean to each other.

    Pico de Gallo – rooster’s beak or pick of the house, which is it?

    And do you cringe when you hear Americans say ” Chi-poat-lee” instead of “chee-poat’-lay”?

    Thanks for stopping by. I could use a Mexicano Amigo to help me out!

  4. Looks good I will have to try some of this.

    You are right on about Herdez Salsa Casera. I have been touting this to friends for years, it’s simply the best on the grocer’s shelf.

    • Hey very cool, bogart. They really are a great line of “go-to” sauces, off the shelf, toss them into recipes and you are good to go.

      Thanks for commenting and stopping by HSD!

  6. Wow…Herdez is expensive online! I’m in Chicago, and I get it in neighborhood Mexican grocery stores for about 75 cents a can or less.

    • LOL, yes Laura it is pricy online… but in our local stores it runs about $1.29 or so. Thanks for reading!
