I was throwing out the half the jar on average. It gets mold after a while.
I have since switched to buying the small cans of salsa de jalapeno for about 50 cents a can. I add fresh cilantro and green onions to it. Way more flavor than the leading brands of jarred salsa and I waste very little if any. They have several types to choose from but the jalapeno salsa is my favorite. I don't taste any tinny canned flavor either.

Carol, you can freeze it too. I do that with my homemade salsa.

Yes. When in doubt freeze it!

I like El Pato brand:



If I don't use Pace brand up within a few weeks (it gets lost in my fridge!) it will go bad.

Of the two, I prefer the El Pato brand, but Pace is chunkier so it depends.......
I use El Pato a lot for dipping flauta into (or those frozen taquitos when I'm rushed or lazy).

As formeandthem said------ adding cilantro makes it (or others) even better. But I find it hard to find a food that cilantro doesn't make better, except strawberry shortcake.

El Pato brand is the one I use too. I just use the Salsa de Jalapeno instead of the tomato sauce. Both are good though.

I have 2 more jars of salsa downstairs in my food storage area. Any time I see it on sale I grab a jar, even if I don't need it right away. I do not have a preferred brand, but we like it mild. I think I will start to use it on more foods so I will use it up faster.

I recently heard that using very hot salsa or hot sauce on your food is good for losing weight. You tend to eat less food. I guess that's wouldn't work for someone who really loves hot, hot salsa and hot sauce.

My son makes his own salsa, but it's very hot. He grows his own tomatoes, peppers, onions and even cilantro and other herbs. I don't know where he got this interest. He certainly didn't learn it from our side of the family!!

I read a book about a lady who entered cooking contests. She won the Pillsbury contest with this recipe, which is really good

Pace HOT is hard to find, if not impossible, on grocery shelves. Amazon carries it but you have to buy a package of 3 and it's not available for Prime.

So I just add Tabasco or jalapenos.

We can get "hot" Pace picante sauce. Seems common in these parts.

Well, I do know that I live in the Great American Epicurean Desert now. So that may be the reason.

This city thinks that Marie Callender's is where you go for the height of food delights. And if you can't pronounce it, you do NOT eat it!
