No, this isn't a Jimmy Kimmel Live bit. See what happened when Chicago White Sox fans sampled the hottest salsa in baseball, only to find out it was made by a rival.

CHICAGO, Illinois (KTRK) -- The Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox are locked into a bitter fight that's just about to heat up after the "Southsiders" took a game away from the 'Stros.

But the spiciest of rivalries don't have to be limited to just the diamond or a Major League Baseball playoff series.

Eyewitness Sports' Adam Winkler made the trip up to Chicagoland, but not without a tasty offering, of sorts, for White Sox fans.

Before Game 3 on Sunday, Winkler met tailgaters outside of Guaranteed Rate Field and offered them to taste a sample of Breggy Bomb Salsa, the culinary side hustle of New Mexico-born Astros third baseman Alex Bregman.

Of course, given the reputation of Bregman and the Astros after the 2017 World Series, we had to steadily reveal the name of the salsa to fans.

In the video above, see how these fans reacted to the salsa before we uncover a concealed Breggy Bomb Salsa label on them.

And, no, this wasn't made for "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Of course, while this isn't a Bregman-authorized switch-a-roo, the former All-Star Game MVP is no stranger to pulling fast ones on people.
