Suggest a salsa

Been eating a lot of salsa, lately. Huevos rancheros, and chips, mostly.

Whole Foods 365 medium salsa - bad

Muir Glen Organic - good

Drew's Medium Salsa - good

Here are the parameters. Preferably organic or natural, backburner okay, no front of the mouth burn that limits taste.

Suggestions for a tasty salsa?

For the most part, you can't find good salsa in a jar. Must be 'fresh'.

That being said, I did find one I kinda liked once about 6 months ago, but damnit, I forgot which one!!

I have not made this recipe, but if, as stated, it is like the salsa served at Chili's, it is a nice starting point for a salsa that you could spice up to your desired level of heat.

i like almost any peach/mango based chipotle salsa- target's archer farms is pretty good.
I don't know if you have a trader joe's by you, but they carry some delicious and interesting salsas.

I picked up 2 great ones from 2 different guys at the farmer's market this past weekend. They might even have websites, I will have to look. One is garlic-based ('delicious for people who enjoy solitude' it's labelled), the other is heavy on green olives.

Oh yeah: Garlic (really high octane and delicious, not much info on that page or google though)

olives (they have dozens of flavors and chemical/thermal properties, not just the one I got)

It's been said before, but I'll say it too- take the time to make your own. Homemade salsa is not only far superior to anything you can get in a jar, you also have a huge canvas to experiment on. Check out this site- probably close to 100 recipes there.

Homemade is the only way to go. Fresh coriander is critical.

There are a lot of nice homemade salsas. An easy one is:
1 can diced tomatoes (undrained)
1 can green chiles
1 cup chopped onion
cilantro
sea salt (already high in sodium btw!)

Put in food processor until satisfactory.

It would involve roasted chipotles with lots of garlic and cilantro.

I make my own. It is a standard tomato based salsa. You can also substitute pineapple and black beans and that is pretty good, too. Dang it. Now, I'm hungry and the tomato plants are still a month or more from producing anything.

Yeah- nuthin' like fresh tomato salsa. Have you ever tried roasting them first? They're great done over some mesquite coals to get a good char- peel the burnt skin off and chop 'em up. Great with fresh chiles, red onion, lime juice, and cilantro.

homemade is always better and the recipie depends on what peppers are fresh and at least
one habanero, if that is to hot cut it up and take outthe inside veins and seeds and wear gloves when handling them un less you like that burn
nothing compares to fresh you can costomize to what you like

I have to agree with everyone else. I have not had a store bought salsa that was better than meh. Homemade mexican restaurant salsas ftw.
