[CH] The Worst salsa you've ever had.

Having enjoyed many a bowl of salsa over the years I thought I'd share last
nights experience.
I went to Chuy's on Barton Springs Rd in Austin, TX.  This place is or was a
local hot spot.  Not as much for the Chile seasonings they use but....well.
I have a hard time understanding it.  It IS cheap.  Maybe that's a lot of
the appeal.  The point here is that when the obligatory dish of salsa was
put out there were actually 2.  One was based nearly entirely on catsup.
Not a good brand either.  If there was Chile in it I couldn't detect it. Of
course it would have taken a bit to activate my heat sensors.  There were a
few chunks.  Few and far between.  Yuck.
Luckily the other bowl had a pretty good Pico de Gallo so all was not lost.
But that salsa was awful.

I went to a Mexican place in Miami one time where the salsa was fresh
jalapenos ground up in a food processor with a little water.  No S&P.  Just
Jalapenos and water.  Not the most imaginative.

Where have you folks found the best and WORST salsas??

Inquiring minds and all that.
