Looking for a fun new salsa to add to your snack lineup? Look no further than this Cowboy Caviar Salsa from Lidl.
What is Cowboy Caviar Salsa?
This line of salsas that Lidl offers caught my eye because of the packaging, and because of the so many different flavors they had available.
A few of the other flavors to choose from were:
- Garlic Chiptole
- Sweet Corn
- Harissa (a hot chili pepper paste, with the main ingredient being roasted red peppers, spices, herbs and garlic paste)
- Roasted Sweet Pepper
- Lidl’s Fire Roasted Chipotle Salsa.
We chose to try this Cowboy Caviar, and it was not disappointing.
This salsa was fully loaded with chunks of corn kernels, black beans, sweet red peppers and onions. It was sweet almost like a BBQ sauce. It reminded me of brown sugary notes and dark thick sweet molasses.
This salsa was not like any ordinary salsa, it was corn and black bean heavy. When you think of salsa, you automatically think of tomatoes, but not here! As a matter of fact, there are zero tomatoes in this Cowboy Caviar Salsa.
Where In the Store?
You can find Cowboy Caviar Salsa in the chips and dip aisle at your local Lidl store, by the other salsas they offer.
How to Use Cowboy Caviar Salsa
My best friend and her husband love Lidl just as much as I do. In fact, they were the ones who introduced me to Lidl stores, as Virginia had one before New York state did.
We made a run to their local Lidl to pick up a few snacks when I was visiting a few weeks ago.
This Cowboy Caviar didn’t have a chance because as soon as we got in the house and put the groceries down we dove into this and DEVOURED it. I had to stop everyone from eating all of it right there so I could take pictures of it!!
We paired it with Lidl’s brand of Bite Sized Round Tortilla Chips, it was a match made in heaven. The tortilla chips were salty and crunchy and the Caviar was sweet and tangy with brown sugary molasses notes.
Trader Joe’s Crispy Crunchy Crisps (NEW ITEM!!) would also be a great vessel to use for this salsa!
Trader Joe’s Chunky Spicy Guacamole Auténtico would also be something I would enjoy this salsa with!
We loved this Cowboy Caviar Salsa, it was a group consensus.
The only reason I decided to give it a 4.5 out of 5 shopping cart rating was because it advertised the heat level as “Medium”. The two yellow peppers on the top left side of the jar indicated the amount of heat. This salsa wasn’t spicy at all, and as we ate it more and more, it left us all wishing there was more.
That was the ONLY critique we had about this salsa, we loved everything else about it.
Buy It Again?
I can’t wait to get home to New York to my local Lidl store and pick myself up a jar, so yes I will definitely be buying this product again.
I might need to play it on the safe side and grab two jars while I’m there, one for snacking with tortilla chips, and another to make sure I have enough to cook with!
