Today I’m talking salsa! If you don’t already know my absolute favorite salsa from Costco is the Garden Fresh Gourmet Mango Peach Salsa! I’ve also reviewed the Big Taste Fresh Mango Salsa from Costco as well here. Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Organic Salsa.

Taste

This salsa is a “medium” heat salsa but it definitely packs quite a bit of heat! Even my husband who can tolerate really spicy food pointed out that for a medium salsa this salsa is quite spicy. It’s still delicious though. Very tomato-y and also not very thick, more on the runny side with a few chunks of onions and tomatoes, I like my salsa pretty thick and chunky. I mentioned to my husband that the flavor of the salsa reminded me of a very spicy version of V8 (vegetable juice). I would label this a “pretty standard” salsa meaning it would be great for nachos, tacos or on burritos etc.

Cost

The salsa comes in a two-pack and each salsa is 1 litre! That’s a ton of salsa, I paid $9.99 Canadian for the two-pack.

Convenience

This is a ton of salsa so if you only eat salsa ever so often you might find this two pack a little too much. As I stated in my opinion this is a very versatile salsa that could be used in a variety of ways. The best before date on the salsa is about is about a year and almost two months from the date I purchased the salsa.

Nutrition

¼ cup of salsa is 20 calories, 0 grams of fat, 250 mg of sodium, four grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, three grams of sugar and one gram of protein. The salsa is organic.

I’m pretty sure I have enough salsa to last me for a year at this point but I didn’t mind the taste of this salsa and would repurchase it if there were a time where I were in need of lots of salsa for some reason!

Taste: 7.5/10

Cost: 10/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 9.5/10

  1. Older red topped version was much better than the newer black top jar recipie. Too bad! Green Mountain Gringo tinkered with a great formula & also screwed it up yeaes ago. Why do they change what works???

  2. This is my favorite salsa, I go through a jar in 2 nights on average and an unhealthy amount of the costco organic chips. Does anyone know who makes this? They changed recipes recently (now evident by the black lid, not red anymore) and I can def taste a difference. I also verified that the list of ingredients changed as well having an old and new jar right when they switched. I wish they would go back.

    I used to have bad luck with the seals on this salsa being broken when i first started buying it, so i’d always check the bottom and seal to make sure it hadn’t gone bad (only happend with 2 bottles).

  3. I absolutely love this salsa. Unfortunately it is not stocked in Costco anymore and I cannot order online. Is there anyway I can purchase this product?

  4. I just opened this Salsa last night after shaking before opening it went off like a bomb. Salsa friggin everywhere. In my eyes, on every cupboard and wall in my kitchen, my clothes, the knife block every spice jar on the stove. Total disaster!! Even after was getting the chunks of salsa off my face and rinsing my eyes there was still vapor left in the jar. There’s needs to be a warning on this container.

    • Are you sure you took the lid off AFTER shaking and not BEFORE? Just kidding. I shake mine up all the time because when you first open it without shaking, I find that it has settled and the top is rather watery. After shaking, it’s a much better consistency. I’ve never had a problem with it blowing up like a bomb, though.
