A warning:  while this is labeled as medium heat there are touches of hot dispersed throughout.

Along with the strange heat characteristic is the strange taste characteristic.  The strange taste which comes across as a form of bitterness appears to come from the diced tomato in the salsa.  Getting back to the strange heat, this appears to come from very small pieces of garlic in the salsa.  Whether that heat is native to the garlic or the garlic just absorbed the heat from some of its neighbors is up for debate.  The texture is thick like a paste.  This is not a chunky salsa, if that’s your preference.  The salsa is labeled as organic.

If you’re willing to give this a try, buy a jar of your usual salsa to go with it.  That way if this turns out to be too radical for your taste, there’ll be a backup plan on the shelf to go with the chips.   Price $1.99   Calories 10 per 2 Tbsp. (31g)
