Stocking up on salsa in SF

originalfig Jan 19, 2008 07:11 PM

I want to buy a salsa-fanantic friend a selection of salsas for his birthday tomorrow. I plan on hitting Papalotes in the Mission, which sells their amazing stuff in jars. Any recommendations on where is a good place to stock up on amazing, shelf-stable salsa in the city?

    I like the salsa fresca at La Corneta sometimes but the salsa verde at Cancun (I go to the branch near 29th and Mission) is great. I usually buy a soda cup of it to go. Casa Sanchez salsas from the store can be pretty good too, I've never tried picking up any at the taqueria though. I also recall getting a container of spicy roasted chile salsa at La Palma that was good.

      Thanks so much! I will swing by a couple of those this afternoon. If they only have fresh salsa, not jarred, I guess he can freeze it.
