SALSA: who makes the best


Widder, SASS #59054

Recommended Posts

I like chips and salsa,  preferably mild.

 

With winter approaching, I'll find it useful to keep the cupboard amply supplied with both.

 

Who do you think makes the best MILD salsa?

Howdy,

Local mex restaurants have outstanding salsa.

But for widely avail I like taco bell medium mixed with heated cheeze.

Cheeze optional.

Sometimes I chop a few green olives and put those in too.

Best

Von’s Triple Roasted Salsa and then Santa Barbara roasted chili salsa. Nothing in a glass jar.

Your mild and my mild might be a little different, but H-E-B carries their own line of salsa.  The habanero one is probably some of the best salsa that can be bought.

Unfortunately the rest of the world doesn't have HEB. (The largest grocery store chain in Texas, which I think stands for Hispanic Employment Bureau :D)

My fav is my own concoction. Number 2 would be On the Border (also available at HEB) ;)

Pace Picante Sauce...made by the good folks in San Antone... :D

 

If it has to come from a shelf that is the one I like.

 

Oh, almost forgot. If you like green salsa you all have to try “505 Hatch Chili Sauce”. I get it at WalMart. It is the best hatch chili sauce that I have found. Way better than Trader Joe’s sauce.

At our house we go through quite a bit of Salsa. The brand most consumed is Albert's. made locally in Kilgore Texas I'm not sure how widely available it is. Comes in 3 different heat ranges from mild to hot.

I rarely buy store bought salsa anymore. It's rarely very good, costs too much, and we end up throwing 80% of it away. I go to a local restaurant and get an order of chips and salsa to go. Usually costs $3-5 and is way better. Most stores will carry some fresh salsa in the refrigerated section which is often pretty good. Of course you can't stock the cupboard or fridge with it, doesn't have much of a shelf life.  I like this kind, but it's made in Del Rio Tx, probably won't find it there.

I take it too work sometimes, and it's gone by 10 am.

La Victoria is a good choice. Its tough choosing just one, as depending on the breeze I can smell the chile packing plant a few miles away. Often we just make our own as we are surrounded by the fields where most of the green and red chile is grown in the USA.

 

{ I'm thinking I'll take Ocotillo Annie to lunch in Hatch NM today.... yea the chile capital ;) }

Point well made! ;)

Instead of going to Hatch for lunch I made green chile stew  today while the wife went to town. When she got home we sliced some Acoma bread [Fresh from Gallup on Sunday} and toasted it to go alongside. YUM YUM ! that's something that you either get or wish you did. :)

Howdy,

I got some taco bell salsa in jars in the grocery.

It just looked kinda good.  No real reason.

Surprise it was tasty.

Give it a try if you don't like it, you aint out much.

Best

Julio’s is good, as are their chips, and their Mexican restaurant in Del Rio.  I make sure I visit when I go to that fine border town.

Sadies is anything but mild.  My favorite salsa is made from vegetables fresh-picked from my garden.  Roma tomatoes, fresh scallions, cilantro, fresh crushed garlic and fire-roasted green chile - all thrown in a blender, coarse chopped then eaten the same day made.  The canning process destroys many of the subtle flavors of fresh picked ingredients.

 

My wife likes mango/peach salsa that lacks spiciness.

I make my own Salsa (canning) and have won several blue ribbons at the Iowa State Fair. 

 

     Cookies BBQ https://www.cookiesbbq.com/products/  has the rights to my recipe. They make a ok Salsa but it doesn't taste the same as my home made.
