I would like to thank you for your wonderful salsa. It was the only thing I could eat on my food during my chemo treatments, my wonderful mother-in-law (…) got me some of your salsa. It was the Only thing that made my food taste good. I am doing much better these days, Thank You, Jesus!
I have graduated to the “Hot” and am still loving your Wonderful products. Thank You So Much.
I have now found it in my area, Branson, Mo. Loving it!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for THE BEST salsa – ever! I suffer from a medical condition where I have a gazillion more taste buds than most people and as a result, I can’t eat foods that have a ‘bite’ to them. Yours is the first salsa I am able to eat without my mouth burning from pain. So, thank you! -Valorie
Thank you for responding to my e-mail and letting me know that my local Wal-Mart did still carry your product…I have acid reflux and this is a salsa that I can eat and it doesn’t seem to aggravate my reflux. I love to put it on my scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast… and it is great on baked potatoes with butter and sour cream, it adds just that little extra…. thank you again. Lois; Winfield, MO
Dear Red Cactus, I have a sister who lives in Decatur and she discovered your salsa while shopping at Sam’s Club. I live in Ohio so I had never heard of it. She called me and told me how awesome your salsa was and that it wasn’t hot. She went on to tell me how she never even got heart burn from it. I found all of this hard to believe because of past experience. All mild salsa is still hot to me. People will say it;s not real hot but to me it can feel like fire. I have had bells palsy twice and it damaged the nerves in the tongue and if I eat anything spicy it sets my mouth on fire. The doctor told me to be careful or I could burn my mouth. They said people have had severe burns in the mouth who have this problem. Always loved spicy food so I was deeply disappointed when they told me this.
I went to visit my sister for Christmas and she gave me a chip with Red Cactus . I could not believe how awesome it was. I fell in love with it. I liked the sweet taste and was shocked it never burned my mouth and it was so easy on the stomach. I couldn’t believe I didn’t get heart burn. My sister laughed at me because I ate some everyday. We had to go back to Sam’s Club and buy more, pulse I bought some to bring back home for my husband to try. When I got home I set down for some salsa and chips. I gave some to my husband he felt the same as me. In one week he and I had ate the 2 bottles I brought home. When we were finishing the last bottle my husband noticed the crosses and seen the scripture on the bottle. He ask my if I knew it was a Faith based company and I said no. Well that made us like it more. It was neat that salsa could get the word out there to people.
I have told everyone about you salsa. I told them to try it and thy would never buy any other kind. That’s when I ran into a problem. I went to Sam’s Club, 2 Walmarts and Cub Foods and no one sold it. I was heart broke. I finally found salsa I could eat but could not buy. My best friend went on line and found out your company is in Illinois.She told me I should go to Rantoul and buy a truck load and bring it back here and sell it.I finally called to find out where else I could buy it when Steve called me and said I could buy it on line. That made me very happy. He told me about recipes I could make. I never thought about using salsa instead of sauces. My husband has got to the point that tomato sauces bother him to eat but now I know I can use the salsa and we both will be happy. I hope in the future that it will be in the stores here so it will be easier to buy. May God Bless your company and expand your territory.

I LOVE your MILD salsa. You see, I don’t like peppers in any form. This is THE ONLY salsa that I eat. My problem is I found it in our Wal-Mart. It’s there sporatically. When they do have it, they can’t keep it in stock. I panic when I can’t find it… I am so “tickled” to see a Christian salsa. God Bless you!! Well, I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful product you have. Thank you so much. My husband is still in shock that I will eat (devour) something with peppers in it. God Bless, Robbie
Good Morning Red Cactus, Just had to write in and tell you what a fan I am of your salsa. I can’t keep a jar in my house for more than a day. I used it in a pot of chili on Super Bowl Sunday and it was absolutely DYNAMITE!!!!!!!! I live in Maryville, IL, just outside St. Louis, and can only find Red Cactus at Wal-Mart. Is there anywhere else it is available? Mike; Maryville, IL
I tried your Salsa at the Illinois State Fair (we had the USDA booth next to yours!) I have to say I have never been a person that even liked salsa, until I tried yours! I rave about your salsa & tell everyone about it & have let all my family & friends try it… Thanks, Peggy Horne
I was craving tortilla chips and salsa one evening at work. I work 3rd shift, and after my shift was over, I went to the local Wal-Mart. With so many salsa choices, I noticed “sweet salsa” and decided to try the mild flavor. I bought the jar of Red Cactus salsa on Wednesday morning at Wal-Mart and it is now Friday morning (3:00a.m.) and my salsa is nearly gone. It is absolutely delicious. I will never buy another brand as long as Red Cactus is on the shelf. Not only am I thankful for my new find, but also the testimony I just read. The scripture reference on the jar, something I didn’t notice until my third serving, was quite a welcome surprise. Thank you for making such a great product and sharing the best food of all, God’s word! Sincerely, Veronica
My husband and I have been buying your great Salsa now for for some time. When we do buy its always 2-3 jars at a time cause it don’t last once the lid is off and the great thing is besides the tasteful flavor is it DOESN’T upset ANYONES stomach. We good go on and on cause we’v both have tried alot of differant names brands and resturants but yours is the BEST…Thank You for your SALSA — Ron & Debbie
Just thought that I would let you know that we (my son age 7, husband & I) love your salsa. I had been seeing it at the store for awhile and decided to try it. Needless to say, it was fantastic. In fact, it is the only one that I’ll buy anymore here in Kansas City. I’ll be going to Walmart supercenter this week. I want to thank you for a wonderful product and to tell you I think that God’s Angels led me here. Good luck and God bless you, Sincerely Cindi
Hello, My husband and I absolutely love your Salsa! It is by far the best we’ve ever had. We discovered it at Wal-Mart in New Hudson, MI and Howell, MI within the past year or so… We recommend your salsa to all of our family and friends and everyone wants to know what kind it is when they have it at our house! Thank you, Barbra and Jason
My daughter picked out your product at Wal-Mart. I had never tried it before. We really liked it alot. Then my son noticed that there was a bible verse on the back and it said “from the cactus to the cross.” So, naturally I was intrigued by this and looked it up on your website. What a blessing to read how you got started and your personal testimony. I am a born-again Jew in the Lord. I was able to witness to a lady in Walmart by telling her about your salsa. What a great witnessing tool. Thank you for being a great product and a blessing as well. In His Love, Marsha
We love your salsa! We would buy at least one jar every week! I could eat the whole jar in one sitting! It’s the best we’ve found… Oh, and we liked fact that you let the world know your a Christian. Never change that. Rob
I bought your salsa the other day because of the fact that you are a Christian Company. The 3 crosses cought my eye when I was checking the ingredients. I will NEVER buy a different kind of salsa!!! This was BY FAR the best salsa I have ever had!!! My family agrees!!! By any chance does your company ever get involved in fundraisers for Churches? I KNOW it would be a tremendous money maker! All you would have to do is put out a basket of chips and jar of salsa and people would buy, buy, buy,!!! Our youth group raises money yearly for summer mission trips. Thanks again for your AWESOME salsa!!! Kathy
We just wanted to tell you how much we LOVE your salsa. It is also like my aunts homemade recipe. We currently purchase it from our WalMart in Maple Grove, MN. We bought the last jar tonight and panicked that we would not find it anymore. We usually by 6-8 jars at a time. We have introduced many friends to you wonderful salsa. Keep up the good work and God bless you.
Hi, Just thought I’d take time to tell you how much I love your salsa. I saw it at Wal-Mart yesterday and decided to try it. Today I went back to buy more. This stuff is GREAT and I wish you the best of luck. You definitely found a new customer with me. Paul; Eureka, MO
I was overjoyed to find out that the Walmart, having just underwent an expansion into a supercenter, DOES carry Red Cactus! WAHOO! I have already eaten almost a full two jars since finding this out only a few days ago. I have tried two other salsas while under my “cactus drought”, a peach salsa from “Mrs. Renfro’s” and another peach mango salsa that I tried at a friend’s house. None are as good as Red Cactus. Shelley Feel free to use this quote if you would like more for your webpage: “I usually hate salsa as it is either too spicy or bitter for me. After trying Red Cactus, I was hooked immediately! I’ve tried other sweet salsas and they don’t even compare. Finally a salsa with no heat that isn’t bitter! -Shelley P”
I just bought my first jar of Red Cactus Sweet Salsa at Wal-Mart today. I opened it up and ate 1/2 of the jar non stop. This is the best I have ever eaten! It was wonderful. Just wanted to let you know how great it is. Sincerely, Brenda; Oak Grove, MO
On a whim, I tried your salsa which I had purchased at Wal-Mart in Springville, NY. My husband and I were enamored of its sweet taste immediately. Sometimes, when Wal-Mart runs out of stock, my husband accuses me of forgetting to buy Red Cactus. We love it!!!!
I just came home from Wal-Mart, where I stopped around midnight after work. The label caught my eye and I picked up a jar of Red Cactus mild salsa. It is DELICIOUS! It reminds me of my grams home made chili sauce. This is the best salsa I ever had (and I’m a 38 YO salsa guy). I am just quickly checking out the web site, and I am overjoyed to see how the company is based on Christian values… This salsa is definitely God’s gift, thank you for helping Him bring it to the masses! Ed; Glenville, NY
Took a trip to Wal-Mart to find some snacks and stumbled upon your salsa. One of the reasons I bought your product is because I noticed the verse reference printed on your product; I would much rather support a company that gives glory to God! As soon as I jumped into my car I grabbed my NLT that just happened to be riding and looked the verse up. Thanks for the inspiration to get into the word; I’m always looking for excuses! I pray that God will keep your company in his hands and use you for His greater good, keep up the good work! Oh, the salsa is excellent. Thanks, your brother in Christ. Joseph; Edison, OH
My family and I would just like to let you know how much we love your salsa. The sweet flavor is wonderful, we use it on tacos and on chips, it’s also great to mix with sloppy joes. I do Demo’s in Wal-Mart and until I did this one we had never tried your salsa before, now it’s the only kind that we buy… Thank you!! Gena
I have to say this is the BEST salsa that i have EVER had! My husband and I bought it at Walmart and we never buy any other salsa but red cactus now. I would be interested in seeing bigger bottles of it for sale. The mild is my favorite! Thanks so much for the great salsa!!!
Hi my name is Geri. I live in Manitowoc, WI. For some reason this summer I’ve been on a salsa kick. I happened to be shopping at Wal-Mart with my mother a couple months ago and I told her how I’ve been eating salsa like crazy but I wanted to find a salsa that wasn’t so hot. She happened to come across your salsa and said “Hey try this…..it’s Sweet.” So I gave it a whirl. Needless to say I only had to try a little bit and I fell in love with it. I called her up and told her “Thank you, I think I found the best salsa made on earth. I just wanted to share that with you. I’m hooked for life. Thank You. Geri, Manitowoc, WI
Did you say addictive? Oh My Goodness…I got hooked on Red Cactus when I lived in Quincy (2002-2005). I moved home to Alabama in ’05 but stocked up with 3 cases of Red Cactus when I went back to Quincy to visit. My friends must have thought I was crazy when I gave them a jar of R.C. for Christmas an told them that it’s a special salsa that you can’t buy here. As my supply got smaller and smaller I wasn’t so eager to share. Last week my good Northern friends Julie and Tammy sent me a case. I was so surprised & I started jumping up and down as I dug each jar from the box. Needless to say….I started eating it ASAP and almost hurt myself getting the jar open. Oh yes, I am a fan! Thank you for making Red Cactus! Renee
I’ve been buying your salsa for well over a year now, (my brother-in-law introduced me to it) and I just loved it. Well I just bought another jar today (the medium), I cracked it open when i got home from the store, and i just can’t believe how awesome your salsa is. I thought to myself “man I need to email them and let them know they have the absolute no doubt about it best salsa in all of America”. My brother is a huge salsa fan and I’m going to buy a jar and take it with me to thanksgiving so he can try it. Thanks you so much for making such an awesome salsa. And it’s also great to see the three crosses on the jar and duet.8. It’s nice to see the little touch of witnessing. Thanks Jenny; Ankeny, IA.
I live in Ankeny, Iowa. About a year-and-a-half ago, while looking for a new taste, I happened to pick up a 16-oz jar of your medium salsa at our local (in Ankeny) Hy-Vee store. I was immediately impressed with the tangy-sweet flavor of the product. Within a short time, I made Red Cactus Salsa a regular part of my grocery purchases and, before long, found that I was buying as many as ten jars per week. My wife, and a number of our guests, have also enjoyed the product in the past year. I was very quick to learn, however, that most of the others did not enjoy quite the same bold taste that I do. Consequently, I made a habit of purchasing an equal number of jars of the mild as I did of the medium. By mixing them together in equal amounts, I was able to appease both my wife’s (as well as our guests) less-spicy nature, while satisfying my own bolder tastes, as well. We have really come to enjoy your product on a very regular basis. Thanks Richard
A friend brought some Red Cactus salsa camping a few weeks ago and had us try it. We are hooked! I bought 6 jars the last time I was at the store. Tonight I looked up this site and read the Christian profile. Thank you for giving the glory to God! How encouraging. I am going to send this site to all my friends and get them hooked on your salsa too. What an uplifting sight and wonderful product. I pray you will have wisdom as your company grows and that it all would go well with you. May God bless! PS-This is high praise because my mother and I make some wonderful homemade salsa and I don’t usually like anyone elses.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR CONTACTING HY-VEE. THE CENTERVILLE STORE WHERE I SHOP EVERY WEEK NOW CARRIES IT AGAIN. I BOUGHT SOME TONIGHT. I AM EATING RIGHT THIS MOMENT AS A MATTER OF FACT. I DON’T KNOW WHY I DIDN’T THINK OF LOOKING ON THE NET SOONER – THANKS AGAIN SO MUCH SHERRI
Years ago, my husband and I had the best homemade salsa we had ever tasted. It was spicy, yet sweet. Since then we’ve never tasted anything like it…until now. We recently purchased a jar of your Red Cactus salsa and were so pleasantly surprised. It tasted like the homemade salsa we had been craving for years. We couldn’t believe it! We will never buy another brand again. Thanks! Bethany; Rockwell City, IA
I just discovered Red Cactus Salsa – in one word — WOW — I love its spicy, hot and sweet. It’s great. Then when I read on the jar made > first of all in the USA (thank you) and second of all Quincy, Ill. My home > state – I’m delighted — you have a new fan. Keep up the good work. Karen; Bloomington, IL
I just tried your mild salsa. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!! I love salsa, but hate the hot taste, that everyone else seems to put in their’s. I found you Red Cactus on the shelf in my little grocery store in Caseyville, IL. As soon as I took that first bite, I fell in love! All the flavors without all the heat, plus it’s low in sodium!!! A dream come true!! I can now use this in my chili, on my tacos, and as a dip. I’m sure I will come up with a lot more ways of using it in the future!! Phyllis
WWHP radio station tried Red Cactus Salsa (medium) for the first time last week when we served it to some musicians visiting the station from the Ozarks. We were delighted by its flavor and the fact that it is made here in Illinois. Who would I contact re: radio advertising and promoting this home state treasure? Sincerely. Lori WWHP Marketing & Promotions; Farmer City, IL
I tried your sweet mild salsa at my sister in laws and am now addicted! Russ; Fisher, IL
I just read your personal testimony and I think that it is wonderful!! As a Christian myself, now I really love Red Cactus Salsa and will tell all my friends!! Leslie; Greenfield, IL
Thank you for your testimony. My family LOVES this salsa. I buy approx. 4 jars a week!!!!
I just wanted to let you know before red cactus came out I never ate salsas or picante dips or things of that nature because they were too tangy,vinegary tasting. But red cactus hits the pallet ever so gently making you smile and say hmmm. Beata
I have spread the word far and wide of your wonderful salsa. I come from a big family and work with a large group of people they are all now using your wonderful product. Thank you! Becky; Taylor Ridge, IL
I just purchased a jar of your medium salsa today at the Village Market Grocery store in Rochester, Illinois. Wow, it is the best salsa I have ever tasted, and let me tell you, I have tried all kinds of salsa. The medium has quite a bit of heat, and it is great!!!! I love the sweet taste. I will never use any other salsa from now on!!! Maretta; Rochester, IL
I am a very pickey eater especially when it comes to snacks and the mild salsa and the nacho cheese are the only two things I dip my chips in so thanky you for creating such wonderful food. Kendra
I just wanted to let you know I just bought my second jar of country sweet medium salsa. I believe in letting someone know they have a great product when I find one. Just wanted to give you two thumbs up for making my nacho chips sooooo much better. Jill; Alexandria, IN
Until today I had never heard of Red Cactus Salsa. A co-worker brought some in and now I am happy to say I am hooked. I LOVE mild sweet type the best. I also like the fact you are a company with Christian values. The company I work for is that way too. Looking forward to being a loyal customer! Susan; Indianapolis, IN
Just wanted to let you know how much our family LOVES your salsa! One jar doesn’t last long in our house- maybe a week. My oldest spotted the Deut.8 on the back and asked me what that meant. So we looked it up and read it over breakfast before school. What a great thing to know that we are supporting fellow brothers and sisters in their pursuit to follow the Lord. Thank you for a great product and sharing your testimony- what a wonderful chapter to use to apply to your business as well as your life. Thank you!
I just wanted to tell you that your hot salsa rocks!!! I buy new salsa every time I find something I haven’t tried before and this is the best I’ve found. I live in Columbia, Missouri and I hope I can find it at Hy-Vee (I bought my first jar in Macon, MO at Ben Franklin). Thank you for making it!!!! Mindy; Columbia, MO
Since I was a little kid I haven’t liked salsa. I could never find one that didn’t upset my stomach. About a year and a half ago, my 3 year old son (now 5)on a grocery shopping trip, pulled a jar of Mild Red Cactus Salsa off the shelf when my wife and I were getting other items. We didn’t notice it until we got home. She likes salsa but has always used a different brand, so, we didn’t know what to do with this stuff. Your salsa sat in the cupboard for about 2 weeks, finally we decieded to try it. It is Awesome! We all (even me) just love it. It makes some of the best nachos ever. We now keep a jar in the fridge and one in the cupboard, just in case. We still make jokes about him sneaking it off the shelf even today. So, thank you for a wonderful product. It is Fantastic!!
Hey guys. I just found Red Cactus here in Minnesota, we are so happy. We will pass the word around. We love it up here. Take care. Kelly; Burnsville, MN
Hello! I am a special education teacher in Troy, Missouri and yesterday another teacher had her students bring in ingredients to make burritos. The teacher was to bring in salsa. She brought in your sweet and mild salsa. She made up a burrito for me and I gobbled it up. It was the best burrito I have ever eaten, and I have eaten a lot of burritos! I could tell that the salsa in the burrito is what made it so delicious. When I asked the teacher what type of salsa it was, I must admit, I had never heard of it. I went around the school all day sharing my new found salsa with every teacher I came in contact with. I will never again buy any other salsa!! Thank you for making such a wonderful tasting, slightly sweet Red Cactus Salsa. Anastasia
Just wanted to tell you I just tried your salsa. It is wonderful. Dierbergs had a demonstrator giving out samples. It’s the best I’ve ever had. It is not bitter like the other salsa in jars.
I happened to be checking out salsas and picked your jar up to see if it actually had cactus as one of the ingredients—-to my surprise—no cactus…However, the 3 crosses caught my eye along with the Scripture address. SOLD! When an organization is bold enough to proclaim a faith in Christ on their product it produces an appeal that advertising simply cannot. Thank-you for your witness. Back home in California there’s a burger place called IN-N-OUT Burgers that prints Scripture addresses on the bottoms of their drink cups. Seeing a fingerprint of God in this way—like on your product—is a source of encouragement. Thanks again and blessings to you. Douglas and Kathy; New Bern, NC
I just wanted to tell you that your Mild Salsa is THE best EVER! I am not a big fan of salsa because even alot of the mild ones are still a little spicy…but yours…is perfect!!! I was actually coming online to see if I could find a recipe similar..and I found your website..so I thought I would take a moment to tell you how freakin awesome you guys are!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!! Thanks! Tanya
My husband & I eat this a lot and have tried a lot of different salsa but yours is by far the best. We love the sweet taste. You can’t stop eating it. It’s also really cool that it comes from a Christian based company. Thank you for a wonderful product… Brenda; Reynoldsburg, OH
We would like to let you know how wonderful your salsa is. We have been “Pace” salsa users for years and never thought to try anything else. I was shopping the other day, saw your salsa and decided to try it. We love it!!! It has the most amazing flavor and taste. You now have a lifetime customer!!! We have told everyone we know! Keep up the amazing salsa!!! Sincerely. Brian, Jody, Shea and Blake; Scotrum, PA
Who Says YOU CAN’T TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS? I’VE FOUND A LOT OF NEW WAYS TO COOK SINCE I FOUND RED CACTUS. Sandra; Fieldale, VA
We love your chips- really good and great value. Also the 3 crosses that say Deut. 8 From the Cactus to the Cross- AWESOME!! Mona
