Dinner Ideas With Salsa - Pair Your Dinner With the Right Salsa
When it’s time to meal plan or make dinner, pairing your creation with the right salsa can make or break your meal. Well, we can help you know which salsa you should pair with your dinners, so you can knock everyone off their feet—and not just with some spice.
Some common salsas are pico de gallo, salsa verde, and salsa roja. Here at Don Emilio, we like to spice it up even more with our red pepper sauce, morita pepper sauce, and hot spicy garlic sauce, as well as our selection of peanut and other seed sauces. Let us take you through some dinner ideas with salsas so that you’ll know which salsas you should pair with different types of dinners to create a delicious meal.
When you’re looking for dinner ideas with salsa, a standard salsa like pico de gallo is the place to start. This salsa combines tomatoes, onion, cilantro, garlic, lime, and your pepper of choice, so you can add a little extra spice to your meal. This salsa also allows you to control the heat, as you choose what type of pepper you want to add. Or you can forgo the pepper completely and add in some fruit like mango or pineapple to give a sweet flavor to any dish. When working with sweet salsas, you’ll want to pair them with lighter dishes, such as fish and chicken, to really complement the flavors. Our red pepper salsa and our hot, spicy garlic sauce are both types of salsa that will pair beautifully with lighter meats to give them extra spice and flavors to make an impactful meal. Our garlic sauce is also a perfect salsa to add to any pasta meal to give it some extra flavor and kick.
When you’re planning to make steak or pork for dinner, pair it with a salsa verde. The distinct flavors of the tomatillos, onion, cilantro, and your choice of pepper plus either smoked or roasted tomatoes will give the punch needed to elevate your steak or pork dinner. Or try something more out of the box with our spicy peanut salsa. The textures and spices released from the peanuts and pepper flakes, combined with the pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower seeds, make this the perfect pairing to heartier meats, like beef and pork.
If you’re planning tacos or fajitas for dinner, try our morita pepper sauce. This variation to the red salsa is made with the morita pepper, which gives the red salsa a flavor that is stronger, smokier, and spicier. The perfect addition to your standard tacos or fajitas. With these characteristics, our morita pepper sauce turns out excellent to put on tacos and fajitas.
Whatever you decide to make for dinner, we hope we’ve given you some dinner ideas with salsas and how to choose which salsa is right for your dish!
