Win Big with Wholly Salsa & Guacamole! {Closed}

by Jessica on May 24, 2012

Wholly Salsa

This past Tuesday, I had the privilege of attending a ‘Dinner Dilemma’ blogger event, hosted by the wonderful people of Wholly Guacamole. They are, without a doubt, some of the friendliest and most down-to-earth people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and I can’t wait to meet up with them again.

Don Bowden

Wholly Guacamole’s story starts with a man named Don Bowden. In 1989, this Dallas restaurant owner started to look for a pre-made guacamole to serve in his local Mexican restaurants. His biggest problem was that avocados start to brown as soon as you cut them open. In his search for the best guacamole, he discovered High Pressure Processing (HPP) Technology (a process of preserving foods though the use of high-pressure water, rather than with heat or chemicals). And when used on guacamole, the end result is a completely 100% all-natural, fresh-tasting product. Which means… Wholly Guacamole & Salsa is preservative & additive-free, fat-free, allergen-free, gluten-free and kosher, too!

Our day began with a taste test of all the Wholly Guacamole flavors, featuring their brand new line of salsas. And by the looks of it, this room was most definitely filled with food bloggers… as it was hard vying for a spot to photograph the food! Once we’d finished tasting, we were divided up into three groups to begin cooking.

Yay Team 2!! I was grouped with (from left to right): Angela of Fab Find Foodie, Courtney of My Crazy Savings, our chefs Sammie & Jim, Shannon of Milk and Cuddles and Allie of Screwed Up Texan.

Our first round featured appetizers… and Team 2 contributed this gorgeous Island Mango Shrimp. Super-yummy and one of the favorites of the day! Another great dish was a platter full of the Thai Shrimp Nachos below. To die for… seriously.

Jim Head Chef

Fun fact time!! Jim, our Head Chef for Team 2, invented Chili Cheese Fritos® and the Stuffed Crust Pizza from Pizza Hut. Awesome, right?

Our final tastings for the day consisted of each team’s main dish (Mini Meatloaves, Roasted Tomato, Spinach & Cream Cheese-Stuffed Chicken Breasts and Red Pepper Mango Shrimp Pasta) along with a mini wedge salad topped with Wholly Salsa Avocado Verde (yum!!) and Wholly Salsa Pineapple-topped ice cream!

Being as that I am pregnant, all of them sound delish because I have wanted chips and salsa almost every day of the week!!!! But, if I was to pick just one…I would say the Roasted Tomato. Although the pineapple is a close second…

Avocado Verde sounds so good! Are there recipes for all of them?

27 MichelleC May 24, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I would say classic medium (that would give me a good comparison to my other favorites) or roasted tomato.

28 Katie May 24, 2012 at 8:16 pm

The Red Pepper Mango sounds unique and delicious!

29 Krystal R May 25, 2012 at 4:15 am

30 Leann Lindeman May 25, 2012 at 8:25 am

They all sound pretty darn good.. but the avocado verde appeals to me the most!

31 Allison May 25, 2012 at 8:31 am

They all sound so good, but I would have to try the red pepper mango and the pineapple first.

32 Amy George May 25, 2012 at 10:08 am

The Pineapple one!!! Also, I’m very impressed with their food preservation choices. Very glad there are no chemicals!!! We need more companies out there like this one.

33 Susan May 25, 2012 at 12:10 pm

I’d love to try the Pineapple Salsa on Fish.

Classic mild…maybe the medium…nope the mild.

36 Coleen May 26, 2012 at 1:42 am

The pineapple salsa sounds good. I love the guac. I usually have one of the 100 calorie pack boxes in my refrigerator at all times. It is so convenient. I would love to try all of the salsas.

37 Tiff May 26, 2012 at 9:21 am
