We love the HERDEZ® Cilantro Lime Salsa Cremosa for a multitude of recipes and of course with chips and guacamole! It has become a to-go crowd-pleaser in our home!

Wanna know my secret? This super yummy HERDEZ® Cilantro Lime Salsa Cremosa. A little bit of spice but not so much that you need to drown it in sour cream, ha! This is actually one of their newest launches with a combo of tangy tomatillo + fresh cilantro + lime + garlic + jalapeño. Um, hello!! The bold, rich flavor is satisfying and so enjoyable after a long day. Oh my goodness y’all, just thinking about it is making my mouth water. 

In case you weren’t aware, HERDEZ® Salsa is the #1 selling salsa brand in Mexico and a staple in Mexican kitchens for over 100 years. It has also become a staple in OUR home! Their salsas are made from fresh, simple, quality ingredients. If you are looking to add HERDEZ® to your next grocery run, you can find it nationwide and specifically in the Hoover/Birmingham area at Publix and Winn-Dixie, and online at Walmart.com.

Using items you probably already have in your pantry, this one-dish wonder has almost no cleanup and is versatile so you can change it according to what you have on hand.

Use rotisserie chicken when you’re in a pinch, or cook chicken breasts from the fridge or freezer. You can easily make this recipe work for you!

Not only is this a quick dish that you can put together in no time, but it’s also great for entertaining. Prep everything ahead, and throw it in the oven before your guests arrive- dinner time, done! Yes, please! Now, let’s get to the recipe!
