Folks, El Rancho Verde is my new favorite green salsa, and if you love jalapeños, then it may become yours as well. It’s bursting with pungent jalapeño flavor, and an earthy, yet lively, aroma. Its rustic consistency makes it equally at home on everything from tamales to enchiladas, to chips and eggs. It’s a simple blend of jalapeño peppers, garlic, comino (cumin), salt and cider vinegar which lets each ingredient stand on its own, yet, enhance and showcase its main attraction: the jalapeño chile. Not only does this result in a verde sauce with a profoundly delicious jalapeño flavor, but also one that has quite a spicy kick. I’ve eaten some of the hottest peppers on the planet, and even I was surprised with how much heat this bad boy packed. And better yet, the heat is at an optimal balance with El Rancho Verde’s fantastic flavor, so one can enjoy the vibrant zestiness of the ingredients without feeling too uncomfortable. And to top it all off, El Rancho Verde is fat free, and all-natural, with a minimum of vinegar being used so as to affect the overall taste as little as possible. So, for those of you who have an aversion to vinegar-based products, this is a bonus.

El Rancho's Verde salsa gives even store-bought Mexican fare a boost of authenticity.

I already knew that El Rancho made a quality red salsa, but I’m particularly impressed with El Rancho’s foray into green chile-based salsas. Hands down, this is a great product, and makes me eager to see what El Rancho will come up with next. Oklahomans should be proud that this product is made right here in our state.
