Spicy 'n Sassy Salsa Giveaway!!

In honor of their new specialty salsa line, Pace Salsa is giving away a sweet prize pack to one of my lucky and awesome readers! A few of their delicious new flavors include Pineapple Mango Chipotle, Black Bean and Roasted Corn, and Tequila Lime. Yum!



I personally love using salsa as an ingredient in a whole host of delicious foods. My current favorite is to add a few dollops of pineapple salsa to vegetable chili. I know this sounds strange, but it adds a good dimension of flavor and a little bit of sweetness to cut the spicy kick. We err on the side of spicy wusses in our household, though I'm slowly but surely coming around.

If you want to try these great new flavors, just leave me a comment letting me know your favorite thing to make using salsa. It can be anything really, and if it sounds good I'll probably harass you for the recipe! :) Any background, funny stories about the recipe, or general humor will make you even more entertaining.

I'll pick a winner using every blogger's favorite, the
random number generator. The giveaway starts today and ends on Thursday, 06/11/09 at 11:59pm pacific.

If you don't have a blog, please leave me your contact information!

Mmm I love salsa on any and everything but I love scrambled eggs wrapped up in a tortilla with black beans and salsa. Yum Yum Yum!

Yum! Salsa is one of those things that I CRAVE when I haven't had it for a while, which is probably why I make Nacho French Bread Pizza every Monday night. I've got to get my fix! Strangely, even though I've been making it every week for months now, I'm still not tired of it. But I think the assortment of salsa flavors could (literally) add some kick to our ol' favorite. Here's the link to my post about it from over a year ago: http://kitchenoops.blogspot.com/2008/02/nacho-french-bread-pizza.html

I usually just like salsa on chips but occasionally I'll do breakfast burritos with sausage, eggs, cheese, and salsa. Super yummy!

I love using salsa with eggs and in my breakfast stromboli!

The John said...

I love salsa! My favorite things are 7-layer dip ans on scrambled eggs!

Sassy said...

Yum, salsa! I love mixing a sweeter salsa with cream cheese and using it as a dip. Simple and delish!

Michele said...

I love using salsa in taco dip. It's the perfect party food!

Evie said...

I love salsa over eggs for breakfast or over a breakfast burrito.

Sarah said...

Mmmmm. I actually make a really simple and lowfat chicken chili with salsa. Just shredded chicken breast, great northern beans, a really good salsa and chicken broth. Then finish off with sour cream and cheese if you wish. I know - it sounds a little weird, but for a quick and yummy chili fix, it does the trick!

This is my favorite line of jarred salsa!! I'm addicted to the stuff! I've been making a one pot chicken dish with the Pace pico de gallo...dredge chicken thighs in seasoned flour then sautee in a little oil...pour a jar of the salsa and let simmer and serve with rice and beans! It's delicious!!

Great giveaway! :)

Steph said...

I love salsa!!!
One of my favorite ways to use it, is to make a taco dip: cream cheese on the bottom, ground beef+onions+green peppers+salsa, topped with mozarella cheese! Serve with taco chips... delish!

Melissa said...

What a great giveaway. My favorite thing to cook using salsa are my Mexican Pizza Pockets. I the filling w/ ground turkey and roasted tomatillo salsa. The filling itself is great for tacos too.

In truth though, growing up where Tex-Mex is at your fingertips, I find chips and salsa to be a great comfort food.

Melissa said...

PS-I make filling, not I the filling. Should have proofed it!

Vicki said...

Just give me some chips, and I'll be happy.

Christina said...

I dont' know that I have a fav using salsa.

But I like to make a dip that is refried beans, sour cream and salsa warmed up and mixed together mmmmm

Snooky doodle said...

delicious. I love salsa :)

Olivia.Leta said...

I add Salsa to anything and everything, beans, eggs, rice, guacamole . . . etc. I would love to win

Joshley and The Charles said...

Oh my! I love love salsa and use it on everything :) Prob. one of my favorite uses is to use it in place of salad dressing on my salads! Yay i love giveaways!

Helene said...

That's a nice giveaway. I like salsas with nachos.

Katie said...

Hmm...I just like putting it with cheese and ground beef and making a nice dip. I'm a simple person! :)

Wonderful said...

I like snacking on salsa with chips and making 7 layer dip---amazing!

Megan said...

I make a mean Mexican Lasagna where I used spinach tortillas instead of the traditional lasagna pasta. I also use taco-seasoned ground beef or chicken, salsa, corn, and black beans as the filling. DELISH!

Chef Fresco said...

Salsa is my most favorite thing. In college I would go through one of those huge family size salsa containers in a week. I've gotten my cravings under control finally, but still eat lots of it. Narrowing down my favorite thing to make w. salsa is very difficult. I'd maybe say mixing it with avacados, garlic, lime juice, hot sauce, and onions to make a delicious guac.

Nothing Too Fancy... said...

OMG! Too cool! I love salsa on so many things...expecially a good flounder filet. But, I'd probably use this for a GREAT crock pot recipe for taco filling!

Jen said...

Salsa is kind of its own condiment in our house, and goes on just about anything. The mister gets a bit picky about his jarred salsa, so I'm looking forward to showing him some new (and mouth-watering) options!

Sarah said...

I'm all about salsa as a marinade. I like to put chicken in it for the day then kind of stir fry it. This serves as the base to my fajitas. Pace is actually my favorite brand for this.

Kerstin said...

Yay for a fun giveaway! I use salsa all the time, but my new favorite way is to add some on a Mexican inspired salad!

Eru said...

My favorite use of salsa is the seven layer dip recipe I got from my mother. Tried it with a mango salsa recently and it was perfect for family members who can't stand anything remotely spicy.

Katrina said...

Favorite thing with salsa? Hmm. That's a tough one, but I really mostly love just dipping tortilla chips straight into salsa. Some yummy loaded nachos are good, but I kind of just like them straight up! ;)

Jess said...

I love using it as a condiment on everything, from replacing dressing on salad to spicing up sub sandwiches. I love salsa to death...

Esi said...

I love salsa in tons of things, but regular chips and salsa is one of my most favorite snacks ever.

Mochachocolata Rita said...

potato chips with tons of spicy pineapple salsa topped with melted cheese. yummmmmmmmm

Emily said...

I LOVE that salsa! It's very, very good.

I like drizzling different types of salsa over my salads. It doesn't necessarily have to be a Mexican type salad... a lot of tropical flavors work as well. So good and healthy!

Juls said...

I love making crockpot chicken salsa....cant wait to try these. Fingers crossed!

I have to say we are pretty boring & like salsa best just on a tortilla chip

Erica said...

I love to make chimichangas and top them with some yummy salsa. Thank you!

Grace said...

salsa is so wonderful, and all of those varieties sound splendid! i like to douse eggs in salsa and black beans over a tortilla--it's like a simplistic huevos rancheros. :)

cessc said...

I love salsa on baked potatos!

Kim Scott said...

Mmmm...I love salsa on just about everything, but if I had to choose a favorite application, I would go with tacos! We usually make homemade salsa, but I particularly like jarred salsa for my turkey taco meatloaf!

EFG said...

I love to put salsa on my baked potatoes!

Bunny said...

We love salsa and taco's , not very original I know but that's how we like it!

Meghan said...

I throw salsa in pasta dishes... delicious... I would love to try the spiciest flavor they have

Carolyn G said...

I love cooking with salsa. You take some good salsa and put it in a crock pot with chicken, pork or beef and a few hours later you have a wonderful taco filling full of flavor.

Maris said...

Plain old chips and salsa always taste great! I love the new packaging on these. It's amazing what a little rebranding will do!

gammypie said...

I love adding salsa to my morning breakfast of eggs with bell peppers. The salsa gives the eggs that extra kick. Mmm...

Erin van Dyke said...

I love it on chicken tostadas. I was surprised when the recipe called for adding the salsa to cooked shredded chicken and the baking it. Salsa takes on an entirely new and awesome taste once it's cooked like that!

Valerie said...

I love to throw a pork loin roast in the crockpot with Salsa Verde. It shreds into the best pork burrito meat.

Eloise said...

i am a total salsa addict. lately my favorite has been a breakfast scramble with eggs, feta cheese, and whatever veggies we have from the farmers market topped with avocado and (lots of) salsa. also good wrapped up in a tortilla with some black beans.

I love making my moms version of Chilaquillas for breakfast and adding salsa to it. Corn tortillas fried up with an egg, tomato sauce, salsa and cheese then topped with sour cream. Yummy!
Thanks!
