Beat The Heat This Summer- My Favorite Salsa Recipe #bringtheheat #mezzetta

Thank you to Mezzetta for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to try your delicious peppers!

I’m ready to bring the HEAT this summer with Mezzetta peppers!

Mezzetta peppers come in all different varieties and can be found at your local grocery store:

Whole Golden Greek Peperoncini
Deli-sliced Golden Greek Peperocini
Deli-sliced Tamed Jalapeño Peppers
Deli-Sliced Hot Jalapeño Peppers
Deli-sliced Mild Pepper Rings
Roasted Red Bell Peppers
Hot Banana Wax Peppers
Sweet Banana Wax Peppers

Today I’m using the Mezzetta Diced Tamed Jalapeño Peppers to make one of my favorite recipes.  Summer salsa- I love to have this with chips, quesadillas, or tacos.


Summertime Salsa Recipe:


  • 4 teaspoons Mezzetta Diced Tamed Jalapeño Peppers
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chiles
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can whole peeled tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar


Place the jalapeños and onions in a food processor. Process for just a few seconds. Add both cans of tomatoes, the garlic salt, cumin, and sugar. Process until everything is well blended, but do not puree. Place in a container, cover, and chill well before serving.


I make this recipe all the time, mostly because it’s so simple and it’s GOOD!  I pour salsa on everything…it must be a requirement as a Texan.  It adds a refreshing kick to all my dishes.
