That's the one, came with four dishes in the package.

Useless. I sometimes use mine for lighting incense, although I ran out of incense a few years ago.

It's not that. I can get it in several stores here. Since we grow tomatillos, though, I usually make my own and freeze it.

That's what I would have thought, GG, that it would be available nationwide. I don't get out much past my own little area, though.

I bet it's wonderful with home grown tomatillos!

Keep looking, Whisk!

We have many grocery stores and I am not partial to any one in particular, Only a couple carry any Herdez products. Pace Picante is everywhere. I always bring a grocery list and if salsa or something else Mexican is not on the list, I confess I donít stop and look in that aisle although I am pretty sure I have checked them all out at one time or another. And yes, sometimes I forget when going to which store, and then have to go to a 2nd store for salsa. I am partial to Herdez, as I think their red salsa is the best. So Iím holding out.

I looked at two green chili salsa recipes on line a few minutes ago. One was heavy with tomatillos and some peppers, the other had a lot of Anaheim, Cubanelle, and serrano chilies in addition to tomatillos. That could be a clue why some Mexican restaurants green chili sauces/salsa are more spicier than others, not necessarily hot spicy, just spicier.

Pace is pretty much everywhere -- except in my kitchen. Herdez is good, and easily available here in Texas. I really like a local brand called Mateo's.

Mateo's Gourmet Salsa | Mateo's Gourmet Salsa

Down here, there are so many salsas that you can't count them all. Many of them are very good. When I have a good jalapeŮo crop, I make my own. Otherwise, I can find so many good salsas here that I really don't need to make my own. I just do it because I have a boatload of peppers to use.
