The following segment aired on O2 Media’s The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Chef Don McMillian to talk about a healthy cooking with Green Mountain Gringo Salsa.

O2 Media: We love salsa.  I know a lot of you our there consider yourself to be connoisseurs when it comes to the texture, the flavor, and, of course, the spiciness and freshness of it.  We have one of those connoisseurs with us today, Chef Don McMillian from the Stocked Pot Cooking School, to show us what good salsa is really made of and some rocking recipes you can make with it. So, I read some disturbing news the other day that salsa can have a lot of preservatives in it.  Can you tell us about this?

Don: Many salsas have a large amount of preservatives in them.  But our Green Mountain Gringo Salsa has none.  It’s so fresh, and you can actually see the tomatoes, the onions, the jalapeños, the tomatillos.  It’s all in there.

O2 Media: Chef Don, you can really see the difference.  It seems like a pretty healthy snack.

Don: It’s a wonderful, healthy snack.  But just read the label.  I mean, that tells the story, “No preservatives, fat free, low salt, gluten free, no allergens.” And you know what?  It tastes good.  It’s won multiple awards for taste.  In fact, Women’s Day and Vegetarian Times said it’s the best-tasting salsa.

O2 Media: Well, my husband loves salsa.  And you’ve made some incredible recipes using salsas in great ways that we can incorporate it in our meals.

Don: I sure did.  These recipes are so easy.  We just seasoned some chicken breasts, broiled them for just a little bit, placed them with our Green Mountain Gringo Salsa, tossed it up, plated it on our Green Mountain Gringo Tortilla Strips, added a little bit of avocado, some cheese – it’s done.

O2 Media: My husband really likes the really spicy salsa.  But I’m a little bit more of a mild girl, I admit it.  Do you have different flavors?

Don: We have something for everybody.  Check this out – we have roasted chili pepper, roasted garlic.  Everyone loves garlic.  Mild, medium, and for your husband, hot, yes.  One of my favorite recipes is Green Mountain Gringo rice.  It’s so easy.  A jar of Green Mountain Gringo Salsa, a cup of rice, a little bit of chicken stock – it’s done.

O2 Media: That’s it?  Great for working women that are on the go all the time.

Don: Another recipe is to take our Green Mountain Gringo Strips, roll them in a little plastic bag with a rolling pin, put a little bit of olive oil on some salmon, season it up with the Green Mountain Gringo Strips, put it on a plank, 350 degrees in the oven, and our sauce is the Green Mountain Gringo Salsa. Plus, it’s only 10 calories per serving.

O2 Media: Only 10 calories? I love that. It’s kind of like a new spin because a lot of people use bread crumbs, but I’m sold on the tortilla strips. Where can I find these Green Mountain Gringo products?

Don: You can find them at your local supermarket in either one of three sections – the natural-food section, the Hispanic section, or the salty snack section.  It’s really worth looking for.
