What you eat WITH it may not be, but that is another issue. Only brussel sprouts, I promise
Seriously though, the reason I microwave it is because I pack it for lunch to put on top of homemade burritos that my wife makes. I don't want to put cold salsa on a hot burrito and I prefer salsa to picante sauce.
But won't the hot burrito be cold by the time you get to lunch? lol
