If you’re like us, you love flavor experimentation and making every dish your own. Here are a few ways to get creative in the kitchen with Mrs. Renfro’s – and remember that you can swap or combine different salsa flavors for completely different results.

  1. Use it for QUESO. Mix salsa with melted cream cheese, half-and-half and shredded cheese to make queso. You can also take a crack at our Chipotle Nacho Cheese Dip and Nacho Sliced Jalapenos in Mrs. Renfro’s Kickin’ Nachos.
  2. Mix with plain Greek yogurt for DIP or SALAD DRESSING. Or if you’re into layered dips, try this Roasted Garlic Layered Border Dip.
  3. Mix with avocado for GUACAMOLE. That’s how we make guacamole “extra.”
  4. Use to flavor HOMEMADE CHILI. For specifics, here’s a recipe for Chipotle Corn Chili, but you can mix it up with any flavor.
  5. Mix with your choice of meat, veggies and stock for SOUP. The possibilities are endless, but here’s a recipe for Green Chili Stew with Pork and one for Black Bean Salsa Soup.
  6. Add to instant RAMEN. It’s time for that dorm days staple to graduate (with honors).
  7. Mix with mayo for CHICKEN/TUNA/SALMON/POTATO SALAD. True wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.
  8. Add to MAC AND CHEESE or TUNA NOODLE CASSEROLE. Whether you’re making mac and cheese from scratch or mixing up the boxed stuff – because that is the sweet taste of childhood.
  9. Spice up the filling in DEVILED EGGS. You might have called them “angeled eggs” if you grew up in certain areas. #IYKYK
  10. Mix with ground beef to make TACO MEAT. You can have yourself a Taco Tuesday. It’s not trademarked anymore!
  11. Mix with ground beef, breadcrumbs and eggs for MEATLOAF. Need help starting? Check out this recipe forCraft Beer Meatloaf.
  12. Mix with ground beef and ground pork for HAMBURGERS. Here’s a burger recipe we love with our barbecue sauce: Chipotle Barbecue Pork Burgers.
  13. Bake with eggs in a FRITTATA or QUICHE. Or maybe this cheesy eggy dish called Mexican Fudge.
  14. Use as a MARINADE. For instance, here’s a recipe for marinating shrimp in Mango Habanero Salsa or one for Grilled Peach Salsa Chicken. (Be sure to dispose of any excess marinade that came in contact with raw meat; use a fresh jar if you want extra for topping.)
  15. Use as PIZZA SAUCE. Buy some of that cauliflower crust or, you know, don’t.
  16. Use as SPAGHETTI SAUCE. Here’s our recipe for Spicy Spaghetti Sauce.
  17. Use in a BLOODY MARY. Responsibly, folks. Responsibly.
