      When shopping for salsa, I often find that it is more economical to go for the store brand than the national brands. Usually the national brands cost in the area of $2.50 per 16-ounce jar, whereas the store brands are often in the area of $2.00. So to me that makes a difference in which brand I buy. However, the store brands don’t always have as much to offer in terms of different varieties of salsa, so I usually have to stick to the basic kinds

      of salsa when I buy them.

      This store brand picante sauce, thankfully, lived up to my expectations and had a great fresh salsa taste, while still being a classic preparation that I think everyone who eats it would like. It’s made with a basic salsa blend of tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, and garlic. It’s hard not to taste the bright pungency of these ingredients in this salsa, and overall I really liked it. It’s also made with corn syrup, which I didn’t like so much, and ...


      • which I could taste ever so slightly, but I accept it as a common ingredient in many packaged foods, especially those made with tomatoes. It’s a good thing that I purchased the mild version of this sauce, because it also is made with jalapeno peppers, which do give it some heat. It’s not overpowering, but it’s definitely there. I’m not a fan of outrageously hot sauces, and I think that any hotter varieties of this salsa would have been too much for me. One thing I
        really hate is thin, watery salsa, and I was grateful that this picante sauce was thick enough to be worthy of dipping my chips into.

        So, to sum up, this salsa has a great taste, natural ingredients for the most part, offers an acceptable level of heat that isn’t overwhelming, and is appropriate for dipping. And it’s less expensive than other brands on the shelf. All of these are good points in my book. he next time I want a basic salsa, I’ll be grabbing this product.
