The Best Salsa: Our Taste Test Results

First Posted: 11/01/2011 6:33 pm   Updated: 08/31/2012 10:48 am

Motivated by sheer altruism, we recently ripped open a giant bag of tortilla chips and tasted a bevy of jarred salsas to determine the best snack option for our readers' next parties--or pig outs. The rules: most of the salsas we chose were labeled "medium hot," and each taster blind-tasted each brand for flavor. (How we all kept our shirts stain-free remains a mystery.) We've ranked the top 10 for your eating pleasure.

Do you agree with our top choice? Did we insult your favorite salsa of all time? Let us know in the comments!
