I'm almost done with my whole 30 (currently on Day 30. Feeling great results. I realized a brand of salsa I bought nine days ago has sugar listed as it's ninth ingredient (three are 13 ingredients). I usually use 1-2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons are... (more)

There are much more important things to worry about than <= 1g of added sugar in 2tbsp of salsa. :-) Next time, make the salsa yourself or just buy a brand without any added sugar. As a side note: "fruity salsa" like a spicy mango salsa, will... (more)

Hello! I absolutely love eating avocados plain with a spoon for snacks or as part of a lunch/dinner. They are delicious by themselves, but sometimes I find myself wanting some other flavors in there. Does anyone have any suggestions about how... (more)

Spice up the avocado? Scatter ground cinnamon or cayenne pepper powder! Generally though, when I do avocado I find the taste goes with pretty much anything. I usually try to play with the texture. Consider things like bacon bits or coconut... (more)

Hello! I was wondering if anyone knew a kind of "chip" I could make that is low carb, but still crunchy enough to eat with salsa and feel similar to a tortilla chip. I was thinking eggplant or bell pepper to bake into a chip, but I am not sure if... (more)

Personally, I would just eat the friggin tortilla chips with salsa because that is a rare event for me (maybe five times a year). If you are adamant about low-carb, there aren't many alternatives. Eggplant or bell pepper will not bake crispy due... (more)

It contains: Tomatoes,dehydrated garlic, salt, jalapeno peppers, spices extract, crushed tomatoes and red chili peppers. What do you think ? Does it contain anything ''bad'' ?

It's fine. Some may have reservations about "spices extract" but its really just the resins and essential oils of spices extracted using solvents (some okay, some bad). It's done to make the color, flavor, and heat consistent from batch to batch.... (more)

So, I have this salsa recipe that is the bee's knees. Like for reals. It's fermented, so it's full of probiotics, and it keeps for a long time (but usually not too long, cause we gobble it up). Since I'm doing this Paleo thing, what are good ways... (more)

Salsa is great on "tacos" - aka ground beef wrapped in lettuce and your choice of topings. We eat this often! As for guac - my favorite way to eat it is with bacon. MMMMmmmm. Paleo rules.

I'm on vacation and don't have the funds are tools to make homemade Paleo salsa. Are there any brands I can buy at the store that would be as close to Paleo as possible? I have a wal-mart, publix, and ward's (organic family-owned) nearby.

Herdez makes fantastic salsa verde and regular salsa. Very clean ingredients list with no preservatives. These are a staple for me.

We make salsa about once a year. To kill the acidity, we have always added sugar. Chemical level kill, not flavor. Any other ways that anyone knows of?

I know different tomatos have different acid levels. I find yellow tomatoes to be less acidic than red. You can also cut back on the amount of tomatoes and replace with other veggies. Avocado should mellow out the acid, as would various fruits. I... (more)

Pork Rinds!!! Love eating them with guacamole. You can get good ones (chicharones) from Latin markets, or cheap ones in a regular grocery store near the snack food.
