Love the chunky stuff. MIL makes some wonderful salsa chunky with just the right amount of heat.

I guess that without an "It depends" option I have to go with somewhere in the middle.

It depends. Sometimes I like a "pico de gallo" type, which is definitely "chunky"; sometimes I prefer something inbetween, with the texture of a fine relish; sometimes I prefer smooth.

It depends on both mood &/or what I'm using it for.

(Oh, & of the commercial brands, Pace is one of our favorites. And they do make both smooth & chunky types. What I do like about their "smooth" variety is that it does still have some texture.)

above all jarred salsa, i prefer one called rojoes. it is fresh in the deli. small pieces and various degrees of heat.

jarred , i love a peach, pineapple one that is sold here, mild heat. i prefer green salsa in jars. small pieces. big chunks not so much.

I prefer chunky salsa,
I buy chunky jar salsa when fresh tomatoes are not in season. When tomatoes are at thier peak I make my home made salsa even chunkier!
I'm definately a pico de gallo kind of guy.

I love a salsa with some substance to it small chunks of onion and avocado, and lots of cilantro, I don't like the kind that runs down your arm after putting it on your chip Now if only I could get my tummy to accept food of any type
