I received 3 bottles of a new salsa being offered by Rosarita, thanks to Mom Central & Rosarita! These new bottles of salsa are available in only a few markets right now (Phoenix, Los Angeles, Dallas and Denver), so I felt lucky to have the chance to try them out!
The Rosarita brand was actually started by a man in Phoenix in the 1940's, and the Mexican woman gracing the label was drawn by one of his relatives. Since then, Rosarita has offered authentic Mexican-style refried beans and are currently the top selling brand in the United States. Their new salsa line, includes three authentic flavors that range from mild to hot- Mild Salsa Mexicana, Medium Salsa Verde and Hot Salsa Taquera.
Last night, I wanted a quick, easy, kid-friendly meal so I decided to make taco dip, using a bottle of the Rosarita salsa.
1 block cream cheese
1 can refried beans (I use the Rosarita vegetarian style)
1 lb taco meat (ground beef, browned, add taco seasonings & water, then simmer)
1 jar salsa
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
Layer the ingredients in a baking dish (I use a 9x11 pan) in the order listed above.
Pop into a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes, then serve with chips! It's delicious and the Rosarita salsa was a wonderful addition to the recipe.
The hot salsa we received was VERY spicy, but if you like spicy, it's great!
