Mrs Renfro’s Salsa Review and Giveaway

FullSizeRender (48)

All Mrs. Renfro’s salsas are gluten-free and fat-free and made with only natural ingredients and no preservatives. Whether you like them mild, medium or hot, they’ve got ’em all… including its hottest salsa to date, the Ghost Pepper salsa.

I was asked to pick out 4 different flavors that I wanted to try so I selected their Mild Salsa, Medium Salsa, Hot Salsa, and Mango Habanero Salsa.  I absolutely LOVE salsa and use it both for dipping tortilla chips into it or tossing into a crockpot to make slow cooker salsa chicken which can be used for nachos or in tacos. Kaley loved the mild and Kyle loved the hot. I like a little in the middle, I want a little kick but don’t want to sweat it out LOL

You can find Mrs Renfro’s salsas in most leading grocery stores throughout the US, Canada, Caribbean, UK & Spain or you can order your favorite Renfro products from the comfort of your home.

Now onto the giveaway….

One reader will win their choice of 4 Mrs Renfro’s Salsa products

To enter, GO HERE to check out all the salsas and then come back and leave a comment stating which 4 flavors you would like if you won (these will be the ones you win so make sure you pick the ones you want the most)

I will end this giveaway on 9/9 at 5 pm EST

Disclosure: I was given my choice of 4 salsas to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% mine and not influenced in any way.

I got the opportunity to try each of these flavors and using my Margaritaville machine made it a piece of cake to create amazing frozen cocktails.  I saved half of each can to make virgin cocktails for the kids and they really loved the strawberry daiquiri one.
