Last month I attended the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco and I was so excited to meet and connect with some new brands and companies. Over the next few months that means more reviews and giveaways for you starting with Heidi’s Salsa™!
Heidi’s Salsa™ is non-GMO, all-natural, no sugar, no vinegar, with lemon + lime juice serve as a natural preservative. It is truly a clean ingredient salsa!
I love salsa, and this stuff is fresh, just like homemade! It is sourced and made in Southern California using all natural ingredients. Salsa is a stable item in our pantry and I use it to spice up some of our recipes and I enjoy it straight from the jar.
The fresh lemon and lime juice act as natural preservatives while naturally sweet tomatoes, hatch green chiles and real vegetables replace sugar or chemical additives to create what has been called the “Freshest Tasting Salsa in a Jar.” Unlike other jarred salsas on the market, it’s a flavorful go-to when you don’t have time to chop and prep your own salsa.
- Original Mild (shown left above) “welcomes all salsa lovers with open arms. Fresh lemon and lime juice act as natural preservatives while pure sweet tomatoes, real green chiles and fresh vegetables blend together with no sugar or chemical additives. It’s tame-yet-tangy signature flavor is a hit with all ages!”
- Happy Medium (shown middle above) “is warm, zesty and packs a flavorful punch. Fresh lemon and lime juice act as natural preservatives while pure sweet tomatoes, real green chiles and fresh vegetables blend together with no sugar or chemical additives. Heidi’s signature blend of 3 fresh chiles, gives Happy Medium the right balance of heat and citrusy kick!”
- Chupacabra’s Revengeis (shown right above) “rolls out an addictive intensity. Fresh lemon and lime juice act as natural preservatives while pure sweet tomatoes, real green chiles and fresh vegetables blend together with no sugar or chemical additives. Chupacabra’s Revenge is known for it’s flavorful, sneaky heat that builds but never overwhelms the palate!”
Here’s a close-up of the Chupacabra’s Revengeis- it has great flavor and a great kick to it.
Upon meeting the founders I took an instant liking to them and learning more about the company made me like them even more (oh, and love them for the recommendation to try Cabo Chips, which are shown above and pair perfect with their salsa!)
Co-founder and Owner, Heidi learned the masterful art of salsa making at a very young age and when she was older, at the urging of her coworkers, Heidi entered her salsa in The 30th Anniversary of Los Angeles Farmers Markets salsa contest in 2009. Her salsa, “The Loco Local by Luko” took 1st place among the 12 salsas present that day, and once the shock of winning subsided, Heidi started to explore possibilities for spreading her salsa to everyone!

The company is now owned by Heidi (r) and her friend from college, Nikki (l.) It is a women/minority owned company based out of Southern LA.
Heidi’s Salsa™ is dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan, and vegetarian. As always I recommend checking with the company on their manufacturing processes for all varieties if potential allergen cross-contamination is an issue for you. Labeling, facilities and process can change at any time for any company or product.
Did I already say I love salsa?! I add to many of our meals including these simple lettuce boats that I love to make for a simple lunch or appetizer. Just grab some romaine lettuce leaves, spread salsa a top, chicken, and sprinkle with cheese. Makes an easy meal or appetizer!
