Best Salsa?

I found Jose Madrid Salsa to be amazingly different.

Anyone got something better?


He sponsored a bike race once, and had Greg Lemond practically mainlining the stuff.

I haven't found a jar salsa I like enough to buy on a regular basis. There is a little hole in the wall mexican joint not too far from here that has awesome salsa. Packed with cilantro...which I love. Spiced perfectly...not enough to blow your head off but enough to feel a slight burn. Tried to make it once in my blender and needless to say it wasn't as good. Good enough to eat but not as good as theirs!! Where can you buy this kind you are talking about?

You know, it depends...

When I buy salsa to use for general purpose or on white corn chips, I get Herdez. The MILD is cool enough so the rest of my family likes it, but it still has a great taste.

If I'm eating blue corn chips, I prefer Pace.

If I want to show off, I use La Victoria (nuclear!).

I'll try that Jose Madrid, if I can find it here in CA. Thanks for the tip, EvServ

I don't know if its local or not but Chuck and Dave's salsa is my favorite. Realy Spicey. Don't get the hottest one unless your used to spicy stuff. I eat tons of crazy hot indian food all the time and sometimes this stuff still makes my eyes water. Also, there is this stuff called poperdom. Its indian and you eat it with chutney. Its so good, if you ever get a chance to try it, go for it.

Home made. There's just never enough heat or cilantro in any jar salsa I've tried.

Nick, you're not going to like my answer:

Homemade with minimal heat, and absolutely no cilantro! For me cilantro ruins a meal. Everybody is on this big cilantro kick nowadays. Everytime I go to a Latin or Indian restaurant the food is loaded with the stuff.

Emerald Valley Salsa, local Oregon brand, lip smacking good, buy extra chips, you won't be able to stop until it's gone. All organic, all yummy! Mild, medium or hot, I like medium because all the flavor comes through.

Herdez is very good for a jar salsa tho a bit runny and lacking heat even in their "hot" version... still, great for what it is. If I want fresh salsa, i make my own
