Mike: Mimi’s Homemade Hot Pepper Salsa was very good. The salsa actually contains jalapeno, chiltipin, and cayenne peppers. This combination of peppers gives the salsa a noticeable bite. Jarred salsa often loses its fresh taste. The fresh taste of this salsa was a pleasant surprise, especially since the salsa was made over three months ago. I am rating this salsa a 4 out of 10 on the heat scale.

Mike – Gunther’s Gourmet Jalapeno Salsa Fresca was a bit of a let down. The salsa sounds and looks good, but is more like a spaghetti sauce. The sauce is quite chunky and lacking on the flavor side. The flavor is good, but very lite, actually pushing bland. I can not recommend this salsa and believe that even Pace Picante Sauce has a better flavor. As for the heat of this salsa, it is almost non-existent. You notice a very slight hint of spiciness in this salsa so I am rating the salsa a 1 out of 10 on the heat scale.
Josh – This salsa tasted similar to a spaghetti sauce and on a chip this tasted just like spaghetti-o’s to me. I thought the flavor of the sauce was decent and there was very little heat. I am rating this salsa a 1 out of 10 on the heat scale.
Mike: The jalapeno pepper has a pretty good flavor, similar to a green pepper with some spice. The heat of the pepper can vary quite a bit, the peppers that we ate had a decent amount of heat. I am rating the jalapeno a 5 out of 10 on the heat scale.
