This sounds similar to the salsa picante they serve at a little Mexican
place by my work in Santa Maria called Taco de Mexico.  I use whatever
excuse I can to eat lunch there.  It's walk up service, you can see them
preparing your food because the cash register is practically in the kitchen
and the food is incredible! .  To-go means they put foil over your paper
plate.  They serve tacos, burritos, and enchiladas and have a list of
fillings, everything from pollo to cabeza (haven't worked up the nerve for
cabeza).  Their carne asada is heaven on a tortilla.  My usual order is a
taco de pollo, taco de carne asada, and a burrito de carnitas muy picante,
por favor.  The tacos consist of two pancake sized corn tortilla heated on
the grill, a spoonful of the meat filling, a healthy dollop of the salsa
picante all topped with fresh onions and cilantro. Oh geez, it's 7:30AM, I
wonder if they're open yet.........
