LOVE LOVE LOVE the honey chipotle salsa you were sampling in Whole Foods/Houston on Kirby!

We inhaled it last night and will go back today for more.

We also downloaded your cookbook and will be cooking and ordering more.

You are a genius!!! …love the story of your cooking it for three years in your back yard!

Thanks so much!

Amy, Houston

My friends picked up your salsa on Sunday at the Whole Foods in downtown Austin. I wasn't involved in picking it up off the shelf so I'm not sure how that decision was made -- but I can tell you that I would not shut up about how much I liked it as soon as I tried some.

We actually finished the jar by the end of the night -- it is SO YUMMY. There were about 10 of us, and we were all equally obsessed.

We looked you up then and there and I made my order first thing this morning.

Alexis, New York

(Our salsa may not be from New York City, but some of our great customers are!)

Wow, this salsa is so unique with all these flavors bursting forth! Our customers love it! Thanks so much!

Winery On The Gruene

You gave me a sample of your salsa and ever since I have been craving more. I absolutely love your salsa.

Jon, San Antonio

Your salsa is incredible!!!!! I honestly love it!!

Napa Chicken Salad

Serves 4

8 oz. container of light sour cream (whole sour cream will make a thicker dressing)
8 oz. container of low fat cream cheese (whole cream cheese will make a thicker dressing)
2 garlic cloves chopped/pressed
3 T. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 t. Kosher salt (if using table or sea salt reduce the amount to suit your taste as they can make the dressing too salty) *
1 t. ancho chili powder (regular chili powder can be substituted)
6 T. Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa in mild, medium or hot according to your preference
2 T. of fresh squeezed lime juice *
2 T. apple cider vinegar

Blend all ingredients well, except for the salsa, in a food processer. Once blended, add salsa and blend just enough to disperse throughout the dressing. Refrigerate overnight (Using a blender can produce a thinner dressing. Vita Mix is not recommended as it tends to heat up the dressing and interfere with consistency **). Ideal when first made to use as a dressing on salad like a Caesar Dressing. Yields app. 2 cups of dressing

1 head of grated/chopped Napa cabbage (1 lbs. Cole Slaw mix can be substituted, just add chopped green onions) ***
1 small head of grated purple cabbage
4 grated or finely julienned carrots (more if you want a lot of color)
2 cup of finely chopped green onions (use the green part & slice on the diagonal)
2 – 3 cups cubed/chopped chicken: grilled, rotisserie, fajita, deli thick sliced
1 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (more if you like)
1 1/2 cup sliced almonds (more if you like)
11/2 cups dried cranberries (options: coconut, raisins, grapes, avocado, grape tomatoes)
Bacon Bits To taste (optional)

Yields approximately 1 lbs. of slaw mix depending on size of Napa cabbage & extra ingredients. Mix slaw ingredients and add as much or as little dressing to the above slaw recipe as you wish. Use fresh lime, Kosher salt, and refrigerate overnight for best flavor

Note: This dressing is also a wonderful base for grilled chicken salad or mixed with nuts, raisins and chopped Granny Smith apples. Be adventurous and serve it on fish tacos or with shrimp brushed with Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa and grilled. Try on roast beef pita pockets, tortilla chips or on crackers topped with more Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa. For cheese lovers try it on crackers with parmesan, feta or blue cheese. Wonderful served on tostadas with grilled shrimp and a spoon full of salsa. Let your imagination be your only limit.
