How to Pick the Right Ancira Salsa for Any Occasion

Blog Post By: Ancira Salsa Collaborator Celeste Lili

Whether you are a salsa connoisseur or new to adding a little bit of spice to your life, there’s an Ancira Salsa for everyone. With 5 different heat levels and flavors, it can be a bit challenging to pick a new one to try out, even if you have already enjoyed one of our salsas before. Each one has an authentic homemade taste that you just can’t get enough of. 


So how do you know which flavor you should try out? And what else can you pair your salsa with besides fresh tortilla chips?

There’s actually so many different recipes you can use each salsa for beyond the standard chips and guac combo. Each Nearly World Famous salsa has a great spice and authentic feel that can’t be replicated.

Mild Salsa

Our Mild salsa is perfect for anyone who is sensitive to spice, but still wants a little kick. You’ll taste fresh tomatoes, garlic, and a hint of jalapeño peppers. And the consistency is perfect, not too chunky and not too liquidy like other mild salsas.

What is Mild Salsa Used For?

Our Nearly World Famous Mild salsa is just the right thing to add some flavor to breakfast. We believe that it pairs best with chilaquiles, eggs, breakfast tacos, and breakfast burritos. One of our verified salsa lovers, Jessica, even goes as far to mention that “I feel empty if I don't have this salsa on hand during breakfast.” 

Green Salsa

If you’ve never tried this great tasting classic, it’s best to grab a jar or two now. Green salsa or salsa verde is made from tomatillos, a fruit native to Mexico. They look similar to a green tomato, but have a husk and different flavor altogether. Tomatillos are more tart and have a slight sweet flavor that make it a great pairing with jalapeño peppers.

Lots of our customers frequently use their Ancira Green Salsa for breakfast foods, similar to our mild salsa. However, you can also add it to chicken, refried beans, quesadillas, etc. It also tastes great with our pozole verde recipe

 

Green salsa is a sauce staple that’s so versatile, it could be added to pretty much anything. 

Hot Salsa

If you are looking to kick the heat up a notch, our hot salsa is just the one for you. Typically, hot salsas are known for being either too mild or way too spicy. The Ancira Hot Salsa is neither of those. With the perfect amount of spice and flavor, Ancira Salsa is the happy medium for all your salsa needs.

SixPack Salsa

Our SixPack salsa is sneaky to say the least. When you first open the jar, you’ll smell hints of chipotle and garlic, nothing too strong. And when you take your first bites, it doesn’t taste too spicy, but then the heat creeps up on you and packs a punch. 


However, the spice level doesn’t overpower the other ingredients. You’ll still get a great taste of garlic and onions. This is the ultimate salsa for anyone who wants to bring on the heat and the flavor.

If you just can’t get enough heat with regular salsas, our Habanero salsa is the right choice for you. The habanero pepper was once considered the hottest pepper in the world until new hybrids like the Carolina Reaper were created. That being said, this salsa can be too hot for those with sensitive palates.

Fantastic salsa!

Great product. Finished two thirds in 3 days. Hot wasn't very hot but I am a pepper head. I would definitely recommend, more than recommend. Worth every cent. Nothing in the stores I've it.

A Punch Of Spice At The End

When I first opened the jar it smelt spicy but not too bad. Then I dipped a chip into it and tasted it. I was like this isn’t spicy it’s mild. But then after a while *Boom* the spice came and it was great. Nice and fresh a little liquidy for a chip but overall a great salsa. Perfect for tacos or burritos. Would be great if they made a chunkier six pack salsa for chips! Keep up the great work on the salsa. I WILL buy this again.

Habenero Salsa

I love salsa that is on the spicier side. The Habanero really gives it the kick I like, Do not sleep on this salsa!! it's hard to find a good Habanero salsa that is not watered down. Might be a bit hot for those sensitive palette's, but I dig it!!
