We all enjoy going the extra mile when entertaining friends and family in our home. Preparing and serving loved ones homemade snacks and appetizers makes us feel good and truly adds to the warmth of a home. Occasionally, time and budget constraints prevents us from serving our guests the favorite family recipes that take a little bit more time and money to provide. I have found a great dip that is tasty and satisfying at only $2.00 for a fifteen point five ounce jar – Great Value Salsa con Queso.
Frequent Walmart shoppers are well familiar with the Great Value brand. Available in the snack section, Great Value Salsa con Queso is a wonderful dip that goes perfectly with your choice of nacho chips. Great Value Salsa con Queso can be served cold right out of the jar or microwaved to serve the dip warm with the chips. Great Value Salsa con Queso is the perfect mix of salsa and cheese with just enough jalapeno peppers present in the dip to give it some kick.
Definitely a fan of spicy and flavored snacks, I have bought and enjoyed Tostitos brand of Salsa Con Queso. At close to four dollars for a jar, I have found that Great Value Salsa con Queso is just as tasty at almost half the cost. Why not save two dollars for a product that tastes just as good as the popular name brand?
Great Value Salsa con Queso has forty five calories in a serving size of two tablespoons. There are approximately thirteen servings in a fifteen point five ounce jar. Each serving contains three grams of fat, with no Trans fat. There is only one gram of sugar and one gram of Protein in each serving of this dip. That’s the good news. The bad news is that each serving of Great Value Salsa con Queso contains a whopping two hundred and eighty milligrams of Sodium. Great Value Salsa con Queso is definitely not a wise snack choice for those with high blood pressure or are otherwise monitoring their Sodium intake. Even those without a Sodium restriction should not indulge in Great Value Salsa con Queso on a daily basis. That is simply too much Sodium to ingest regularly in one sitting for optimum health. For an occasional snack or when sharing a great evening with friends or family, this dip is perfect for noshing with loved ones.
To offset the high Sodium content in this dip along with the chips, I served Great Value Salsa con Queso with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and olives for my guests to make personal nachos.
Great Value Salsa con Queso is a fun and tasty dip that is perfect for entertaining on a budget. Buy a jar today with a bag of chips and have a low key and casual night of cards or a movie with some good friends. After a long week of work or school you deserve a relaxing night without worrying that you are blowing your food budget on one night of entertaining. Great Value Salsa con Queso helps to make a fun night tastier!
