Another decent salsa from Trader Joe’s. I like the kick of the lime, though it’s still pretty mild overall as far as “salsa spiciness” goes.

This isn’t bad at all. One of the better salsas from Trader Joe’s. I wish it was a little bit more flavorful, but it does have more of a tang than, for example, TJ’s chunky salsa. I also like that this isn’t too chunky, since I prefer my salsas sauce-y. Otherwise, I go for pico de gallo when I’m looking for more of a bite. I would probably buy this again, though. It also lasts awhile.

I love the fact that it’s organic. Could use a little more kick.

This is my go-to salsa for everything. I grew up eating authentic Tex-mex, and always steer clear of anything resembling Pace/Old El Paso, which so many jarred salsas taste like. This one has a good mellow heat, nice pepper/tomato flavor and balance, and tastes as fresh as you can expect from a jar. It’s more smooth than chunky, and will spoil within a few weeks after opening, so be sure to have some huge plates of nachos to pile this on.

Best salsa hands-down that I’ve ever had out of a jar. I use it on chips and in recipes like slow cooker latin chicken. UNBELIEVABLE. Only complaint would be the sodium count.

This is my favorite salsa at Trader Joe’s so far. It is not as spicy as, for example, the homestyle Medium salsa, so if that is the right amount of spiciness for you or if you prefer spicier, this one may be too mild. But in my case it’s just the right amount of kick that allows me to eat a lot of it without getting spice fatigue. Has great flavor balance and a good consistency as well. I am not a chunky salsa person, so this is perfect for me. Also love the tomatillo flavor. Will definitely buy again after spending time buying a different salsa every trip!
Not that bad
