Salsa - Smooth or Chunky???

Note to Mods.... I may not have this in the right place so please move as needed!!!

I love chips and dips! One of my favorite foods in the world. I'm not big on the giant chunks in my salsa/dip. I like a smoother salsa with smaller chunks. What do you folks prefer??? Love to hear what you like!!!!

Additionally.... I like a medium hot salsa. Something with a nice bite, but not so much to numb my taste buds. But a hot that keeps you begging for more!

If it's too chunky, that's what blenders were invented for.

Amen to that DtB!!! I have done that with jarred salsas. The flavor would be good but just to chunky for me. Blend it up and it's perfect!

I just love chunky salsa - I don't like smooth stuff at all.

I like em both. Chunky and mild for chips or nacho toppings, but I like a smoother spicier salsas for enchiladas or to put on carnitas and carne asada. When I was a little girl my grandma would make a eggs over easy served with shredded beef soaked in a bright VERY spicy red sauce. The contrast of the eggs and the spicy beef is great, she made corn tortillas (of course) and refried beans on the side. YUM.

I like it somewhere in between, but if the coices were only smooth or chunky then I would go chunky every time.

Chunky for dipping, smooth for tacos and such..... unless taco sauce is not considered salsa

I consider them two different things even though salsa actually means sauce.

Yeah, I kinda thought they were two different things that were basically the same

I don't know what you consider smooth, but, I don't like the stuff you get from the packets at Taco Bell and I cannot eat Pace. I have to have smooth, but, with texture, know what I'm saying? lol I usually make my own in the processor though.
