My three year old granddaughter LOVES tortilla chips with salsa. I recently bought Wright’s of Texas Fresh Red Salsa for her, only to find out that it is made right here in Katy, Texas! What a pleasant surprise!
Carina, our salsa expert, thinks it is delicious! It is all natural and has no artificial preservatives or added sugar. It can be found in HEB locally or ordered from wrightsoftexas.com.
