In this historical reenactment you can see a bunch of folks' having a conversation about salsas. The conversation goes like this,
- Decent Texan> More Picante sauce.
- Creepy foreign looking guy> Let's use mine?
- Texan 1> Oh that ain't Pace Picante sauce.
- Creepy foreign looking guy> What's the difference?
- Decent Texan> Pace is made from vegetables and spices by folks in San Antonio
- Texan 2> (finishing sentence) who know what Picante sauce should taste like.
- Texan 3> (laughing grabbing the offered bottle). This stuff is made in New York City
- Everyone> (shock) NEW YORK CITY?
- Decent Texan> Stranger, I hope you can beat a full house.
I'm NOT skeptical about the topic of this conversation, or the quality of Pace Picante sauce. But I would like to know whether or not New York City ever produced or marketed an alternative salsa. I can see New Yorkites exporting a spicy mustard, "shmear", or pizza; but, did they ever even venture into the world of salsas?
