Homemade pico de gallo is easy to make, just as affordable, and hugely preferable. The best bottled store bought salsa is not good.
where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

All crap. Homemade is best.

Pace has a green sauce now that is good. They also have a restaurant style that's pretty good.

It's not bad and something made in a place called Telephone Tx has it's own allure anyway.
Stuff from the major brands tho (Pace--Old El Paso etc) is just crap..too sweet and made for the masses.
Smaller 'micro' brands tend to be better.

I liked Pace until Campbell Soup got ahold of it and changed/ruined it.

I didn’t know what happened to Pace. I used to like it better, I wasn’t sure if it had changed or if it was just my taste changing. We’ve been buying On The Border - don’t know that it’s great, but it’s better.

For decades, it was made (as the commercial said) "right here in San Antonio Texas"..
They moved from San Antonio to Paris Texas, made in the Campbells plant at intersection of the loop and US 82. Went "all natural/gluten free".
Not much good come out of Paris Tx.
