While salsa and guacamole often appear on the plate together, accompanying your fiery fajitas or atop your tasty taco salad, one of them is easily found in the supermarket as a Rich Food, while the other is best made at home.
Salsa is the number one selling condiment in the United States, and whether you prefer it mild or spicy, it follows the same rule as ketchup, because its base is also tomato. But it is even more important to purchase organic salsa because sweet peppers and hot peppers, two common salsa ingredients, are on the Terrible Twenty. Luckily, there are a lot of Rich Food organic salsa options in the supermarkets today.
Guacamole, on the other hand, is more problematic. Many offerings are loaded with fake ingredients, and some are even canned and stacked on the shelf next to the chips. Stick with fresh varieties in the refrigerated section, and examine the label to be sure there are no Poor Food ingredients—or try the following Holy Moly recipe at home.
