Lately, I’ve found myself gravitating towards local products at the grocery store. I like the idea of buying stuff made or grown close to home. It makes me feel like I’m helping make Houston a better, more self-sufficient place. For that reason, I’ve decided to start highlighting local products and/or producers I love. Don’t fret…there is no crass commercialism involved. I swear on a stack of Dove bars that I’m not being bribed or compensated in any way to promote any product. I just want to share the information; you can decide if you’d like to try them. Think of it like running into a stranger in the grocery store who turns to you and says, “Have you tried these yet? What did you think?” That’s not unusual for me. I seem to have random conversations with strangers in the grocery store quite a bit. I must have one of those faces. Anyway, here we go:
Local Product Spotlight #1: Arriba Salsa
I’m starting with this one because The Complete Package and I both love it to pieces. I’m not joking when I say that I have one jar in the fridge and three in the pantry at this very moment. We’re addicted. We eat it on everything and anything, but it’s also great straight out of the jar on tortilla chips. It’s good stuff.

All I can say is that you’d better be prepared to bring all this food to either Thanksmas or Hoegarden!!!
You’re making me hungry!
Looks like I’ll need to start a “NanaBread Box” for our next gathering. So far, it’s Guittard chocolate chips, Arriba salsa, lemon-garlic hummus, chocolate cheesecake brownies (the Evil Shenanigans recipe)…am I missing anything?
And now I want salsa… I’m thinking Mexican for lunch! How much longer until lunch???
Why wait? Any time is salsa time at my house. This stuff is fantastic on scrambled eggs!
oh!! This is my new favorite salsa too!!!! I discovered it a few months ago way up on the top shelf at Wally World… oh that is some SERIOUSLY good stuff!! The next best brand to homemade in my book!! I may just have to check those pickles out on their website too… Thanks for sharing!
You definitely need to try the pickles, especially if you like them swee & spicy. They totally rock!
