Satan's Salsa... A Rivet-ing review

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'd like to thank John (Rivet) for this outstanding salsa that he shared with me. This is my personal review, and it was a very enjoyable event. Luckily, I still have some left for appealing my taste buds.
A rich dark red color, very much like the color of a chipotle adobe. You can clearly see seeds, and chunks of what are jalapeno, cayenne, and tomato.

A vinegar base with the sweetness of peppers and other spices. Very pleasant aroma that is well balanced.

Nice chunks of jalapeno, cayenne, and tomato. There are other ingredients that are ground smaller, but yet giving it a chunky texture. This is a good texture that won’t easily fall off your burrito, tacos, nachos, or any other food.

You’re very first taste is the vinegar, which seems to be of a good quality, then it is followed by the sweet and savory flavors of peppers, tomatoes, and other spices. The initial taste is a very good blending of compatible flavors. The heat then comes on by starting at the back of the throat, tongue, and roof of the mouth. It works its way towards the front, and by the time it hits your lips it’s mellowing out. The heat level is strong, but not offensive as the great balance of flavors blends it to a great balance.

This is a unique tasting salsa that is hot, and loaded with some very pleasant flavors. It is the best that I can remember tasting in at least 50 years of salsa tasting/eating.enjoying. John this is a killer salsa.

Just the facts. It's all good my friends.

Damn! With a review like that this sounds like a must try salsa biggrin.gif. I grew up in New Mexico and love a good salsa, course for my wife you just wave the pepper over the pot and that's almost to much... heh-heh.

I was also one of the lucky one who got some of rivets jalapeno and chennye salsa and it was very very good too. Not super hot but very very tastey with a bit a kick. You did it justice there Rich for sure. Great job there Rivet.
PS the habineros salsa was quite the hit at the Gathering at Jerry's

richoso - once again, your post puts into words what i was unable to. when i received this salsa i was excited and anxious but also a little worried ~ the name alone was enough to scare away the rest of the family except for one of the boys.

tried it, and it was jsut like you said, it lets you get the flavors, then it hits you, then it retreats back and lets you see the flavors from a new angle. a very masterful job of salsa creation by rivet ~ my son who tried it is normally a wimp about spicy foods, but did enjoy this - his words were: "it doesn't last long and leaves behind a lot of flavor!"

as for the heat itself, my observation was that you sure notice it, but it doesn't beat the stuffing out of ya. it's just about right, allowing you to concentrate on everything else and admire the complexity of a real salsa.

excellent work, rivet, and an excellent review, richoso!

Just finished lunch, some of this fine salsa and tortilla chips, needs nothing more.
When I received some of John's salsa I cracked the jar open and immediately was hit with an amazing aroma. The heat does build after a bit but doesn't linger. I don't know what else to say that hasn't already been said so I'll say Thanks John, great salsa. Sitting here right now I'm thinking about having some. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
