Best jarred salsa verde...and no, I'm not going to make it so don't go there.

Tonight we are having a pork roast for dinner. Later in the week I want to make some QUICK pork enchilada verdes but need input on the best brand of salsa verde. I'm not interested in making verde sauce as this needs to be fast and it's just for Dh and me.

  1. Herdez brand is my go-to, comes in a smallish 8 or 10 ounce can; hopefully, you can also find it where you are.

    1. La Costena and San Marcos also, in the little cans.

      1. I'll second the Herdez brand. I much prefer it over the La Costena and San Marcos brands.

        1. re: gordeaux

          I made some Tinga the night after this post and had a tasting with the three brands since it's been so long since I have had Costena, and San Marcos.. Herdez won hands down in this household. I would have made my own, but the kitchen remodel has a few weeks left.
          I'd suggest buying as many cans as you can and tasting. The little ones are under a buck where I am in every store.

        2. Herdez if you can't be bothered to make it yourself.

          1. I agree with the people above. Herdez is good. They should have it at most grocery stores.
