Honest-to-hotness Texas salsa
When I wrote about Austin's Hot Sauce Festival recently for the Travel section, just the memory of all those amazing salsas sent me to the Internet to stock up. From Tears of Joy, a shop there that sells salsas on its website, I ordered two jars that I've been scooping into every night when I come home from work. The Smoky Hill Salsa packs quite a punch, but I love the taste of smoke, and it's got smoke for days. The Texas Gourmet fire-roasted serrano is milder, but no slouch when it comes to taste. I hate to say it, but both of them beat anything made around here. Hands down.
