Pace medium has the best jar flavor I have found. For corn chips and salsa, Pace is my go-to brand. If I'm in the mood for Mexican food I will usually make fresh pico de gallo.

I've been nagging a local Mexican chef for his salsa recipe for years. All he will tell me is that he smokes his own peppers, but won't tell me what peppers. The salsa is purple, which I assume is a combo of the onions and peppers. I have been experimenting, but haven't hit the right combo yet.

I’m insanely picky - went nuts looking for decent salsa when we were in NC. The only jarred salsa I like is Hell on the Red. It’s a small Texas brand. It tastes like pick run through the blender. I don’t like cooked tasting salsa and that’s all I’ve found that I love. Now it’s available online at HEB so if I’m ever forced to live in another state I’m good. For restaurant salsa Chuy’s has a creamy jalapeño cilantro I wish they’d bottle!

I like the HEB brand salsa. It always tastes fresh, though someone else said it tastes like tomato sauce. It’s all a matter of taste.

Fresh is the best, but not convenient and doesn’t keep long.

Whole Foods own. Not sure if the Amazon buy affected it but try it out!

It kinda depends on if you like it spicy or mild.
I prefer it super mild, not hot at all but just "spicy" (i.e. some chili flavor without the heat).
So I like Herdez in the jar and I like the Trader Joes "pico de gallo" "fresh made" salsa. Mostly tomatoes and onions with a little mild chili, garlic etc.
I make my own a lot.

I'm sure it is, but how many people actually do that?

I really like Clint's Texas Salsa (and it really is made in San Antonio.) I live on the East coast as well, and at least 3 stores around here carry it. Clint's is a less chunky salsa than some, which I like as I prefer a more blended consistency. It's tasty- check it out if you can find some.

Pace Picante was awesome, then they decided to hop on the "chunky" wagon about 25 years ago & now produce similar goopy dreck as most of the other American producers, ugh. I thought I saw some non "chunky" Pace a couple of months ago somewhere, I hope they are making the good stuff again, I still am looking around for it in markets here up north. Fingers crossed.

I use Green Mountain but I wouldn't start a crusade for it, it's ok.

Herdez beats them all if you want authentic Mexican restaurant style salsa. Pace used to be good but they changed their recipes. Made here too. But, I've been a fan of Herdez since you could only get it in a can. Now in jars it's great stuff. We've had hundreds of different salsas and sauce.
