ORANGE, CALIF. — Herdez is launching Salsa Cremosa, a new line of creamy salsas featuring authentic Mexican flavors. Available in three varieties, the salsas contain 50 calories, 2 grams of carbs and 1 gram of sugar per 2-tablespoon serving.

The cilantro lime variety blends tomatillos, cilantro, lime zest, garlic and jalapeños. The salsa works well with fish tacos, grilled chicken or pasta salad, the brand said.

The chipotle flavor features the smoky, spicy flavor of chipotle. The salsa complements chicken, pork or seafood and may be used in shrimp tostadas or chipotle chicken taquitos, Herdez said.

The roasted poblano option combines roasted poblano peppers, garlic and cilantro. The salsa may be poured over pasta, as a salad dressing or in roasted poblano chicken, the brand said.

“Fans of Herdez salsa know we stand for simple, quality ingredients that represent the heart and soul of Mexican cooking, and our new Salsa Cremosa line is an extension of that belief,” said Giselle Olson, associate brand manager for MegaMex Foods, a joint venture between Hormel Foods Corp. and Herdez del Fuerte, SA de CV that distributes Herdez products. “Each jar is filled with creamy, unmatched flavor that you and anyone around the table won't be able to resist.”

Herdez Salsa Cremosa products are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.38 to $3.49.

The Salsa Cremosa line joins Herdez’s broad portfolio of Mexican foods, which includes salsas, sauces, dips, guacamole, tortilla chips, tortillas and peppers.
