San Diego Salsa

Dumpling | Jan 25, 2002 12:09 PM

Is there any decent salsa you can find in the supermarket in San Diego? I find that most of the "fresh" ones are watery and not very fresh tasting. My favorite is "la salsa chilena," sold at farmer's markets and whole foods, apparently made in North Park. It's texture is more like crushed tomatoes, rather than chopped. For bottled salsas I like Herdez Salsa Casera okay.
I just can't believe that in SAN DIEGO it's so hard to find good salsa.
And tortillas? It's really hard to find flour tortillas made with lard (taste the best). The best ones I've found are at Henry's, called San Miguel (I'm pretty sure).
Any others I should try?
