A huge hit at the latest NYC Hot Sauce Expo, Mikey V’s Smoked Bacon Salsa was a sell-out. But I managed to get a couple of jars just before they ran out.
Mikey V’s new Smoked Bacon Salsa features Rentsch Brewery’s Weizenbock Beer
Ingredients: Tomatoes, Beer, Onions, Jalapeño peppers, Lime juice, Fresh garlic, Cilantro, Spices, Natural bacon flavoring, Pure cane sugar, Kosher salt, Black pepper, Spices, Cumin.
If you look at those ingredients – that’s pretty much how the flavors come out.
This delicious salsa has a distinct yet mild beer flavor coupled with fresh tasting onions and garlic. Jalapeños bring on the little heat that it offers.
The smoked bacon flavor comes from a natural bacon flavoring ingredient. I appreciate this, as I wouldn’t want pieces of cooked bacon in my salsa. I’m ok with the flavor of it though, and I like a little natural smoke flavor if it’s in small doses.
The pure cane sugar adds a nice sweetness to the overall flavor – I do like a sweet base in my salsas and sauces.
This is one of those “WOW” salsas that everyone will love! I couldn’t stop eating it as I write this review!
Texture & Appearance: – Chunky. Lots of tomato, onion, garlic and jalapeño pieces.
Heat Level: – Nice mild tingle. Just enough heat for everyone.
