I am crazy picky when it comes to salsa.

I rarely get it because there just isn’t a jarred salsa that is that good.

I am all about flavor and the right texture. Most salsas have this overwhelming tomato flavor (I know, I know, it’s salsa) but it’s also the ONLY flavor. This All-Natural Smoky Chipotle Salsa has seriously blown my salsa expectations out of the water. I’m not trying to be dramatic (for once in my life). The flavor that this salsa packs will put all other salsa’s to shame. It is so unique and addicting, all you honestly need is a bag of tortilla chips and a jar to make this your favorite.

However, I going to blow your socks off even more…
