What I never expected was that people (Northerners) were envious of something *I* had. And not the Tex-Mex food everyone falls in love with when they visit. Nope, something smaller, something I can buy in a grocery store and they can’t – RoTel. I think it’s become more prevalent in the last few years but for a while it was persona non grata if you were north of the Mason-Dixon Line. You know that means? None of those fine people have ever burned the tips of their fingers while attempting to dip their corn chip into a rarely-used crockpot full of spicy molten processed cheese lava!! I mean, if there’s no RoTel, then what are they adding to their Chicken Spaghetti?? And how, how for love of tomatoes, are they able to make the world’s easiest and tastiest salsa recipe I have here for you?? They can’t. But you can. Yes, you can.
