The bias of an in-law aside; Mama Vega's Salsa (MVS) surely played a part in my eventual "I do." See, I was always a finicky eater growing up; to admit that MVS is one of my all-time favorite eats is almost impossible to imagine...but it's true! Pre-MV, salsa (of any kind) was detestable to me (taste, temperature, texture); so I never ate chips and salsa. I instantly fell in love with MVS: refreshing, chunky, flavorful, healthy, and with a lil' kick. It literally changed my mind about chips and salsa; now I can't enjoy the dish without it! I've also ventured to try it in many recipes with great delight. But nothing is better than the simplicity of good tortilla chips and MVS. Now, after "I do", I was welcomed into the family as well as the treasure trove of other Mama Vega products. Look, Mama Vega has an amazing palette and culinary creativity. It's evident in many of her ideas and dishes. I don't love absolutely everything - still a bit of the picky eater in me - but the list of dislikes is pretty thin. My other MV "must haves": Hillbilly Spice Rub (on almost everything), a few of her specialty jellies/jams, and her seasoned whole turkeys (Thanksgiving).If that were not enough though, the most significant part for me is that you know you are always getting the freshest, tastiest, most health-conscious products. Once you get to know Mama Vega, understand the philosophy behind her cooking and product creation, you truly understand why the slogan "Healthy Never Taste So Good" is perfect for her.
