I love sharing ingredients and products that I buy regularly and adding them to my list of Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, and Pace Picante Sauce is a product I’ve loved so much and used for so long that I can’t remember when I didn’t have a jar of this in the fridge. If you haven’t tried this tasty version of salsa, I hope one or two of my Low-Carb Recipes with Pace Picante Sauce  can entice you to try it. 

I first fell in love with Pace just for the flavor, and back in the day I ate plenty of Pace Picante Sauce with chips before I started on a healthier eating path. And now I use this product to add a Southwestern flavor to low-carb soups, stews, and slow cooker or Instant Pot dishes, as well as tacos and recipes with taco flavors. It comes in mild, medium, or hot, and I buy the medium spicy one the most. But if you’re cooking for kids you may prefer the mild version, which still has loads of good flavor.

And I know some people will wonder, so I want to state clearly that Pace has never compensated me in any way to use or promote their products! I’m pretty sure they have never heard of me or my little blog!

Why is Pace Picante Sauce so healthy and low in carbs?

Pace Picante Sauce has no added sugar; it’s made with crushed tomatoes, fresh Jalapeno peppers, fresh onions, distilled vinegar, dehydrated onions, salt, dehydrated garlic, and natural flavors. It has 1 carb per tablespoon, which comes from the natural sugar found in the tomatoes. When you’re using it you don’t need huge amounts to add plenty of Southwestern flavor and this is great to use in a sauce for a dish where there are mainly low-carb ingredients.

Where Can You Buy Pace Picante Sauce?
