In this, the second installment of salsa ratings — there were just too many (16) to do in one tasting — judges had the same dilemma they had last week: Finding one that really wowed them. From last week's eight, judges chose Green Mountain Gringo, Mission, and Pace, although none were huge favorites. The same goes for this week. Judges picked the best three from eight more options, but were ambivalent about their overall affection for salsa from a jar. All of the salsas were chunky style with medium heat.
