Default Question re Pace Piquante sauce


I have a recipe that calls for this, but don't have any. I do,
however, have a jar of medium spice salsa. Are they a similar product?

Yes. Pace makes average salsas that all have similar consistencies
and ingredients. Almost any other jarred salsa will be the same.
Even one made in New York City.

There are Salsas and then there are salsas. Whatcha' making? Generally, in
my experience, any recipe calling for a name brand product is put out by
the manufacturers' kitchens. Natually the manufacturer will want you to buy
their product for the ingredients. Unless of course, a very specific
ingredient is called for in the recipe for a specific reason. You didn't
post the recipe so I'll just take a stab at it and say just about any salsa
will do.

It's called Mexicorn Lasagne and I'm guessing the salsa will do, but
haven't made this before and I have people coming for supper tomorrow.
I've been under the weather and this seems the easiest thing to serve,
considering what ingredients in my pantry and freezer

1 lb ground beef
1 can drained kernel corn (I'll use frozen)
1 can 15 oz tomato sauce
1 cup Pace Picante sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 carton 16 oz low fat cottage cheese
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup grated parmesan
1 tsp oregano leaves, crushed (I only have dried)
1/2 tsp garlic salt (I'll use granules)
12 corn tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar

Brown meat in lg. skillet, drain. Add corn, tomato sauce, picante
sauce, chili powder and cumin. Simmer, stirring frequently 5 min.
Combine cottage cheese, eggs, parmesan cheese, oregano and garlic salt.
Mix well. Arrange 6 tortillas on botton and up sides of lightly greased
13x9x2 inch baking dish, overlapping as necessary. Top with half the
meat mixture. Spoon the cheese mixture over the meat. Arrange
remaining tortillas over cheese, overlapping as necessary. Top with
remaining meat mixture. Bake in preheated over at 375 for about 30
mins. or until hot and bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle with
cheddar cheese. Let stand 10 minutes before serving with additional
picante sauce.

Except for the cottage cheese, you are making an open-faced enchilada
casserole. Any salsa or sauces will work. I often use what I have on
hand -- after all, what I have on hand has the flavors that I prefer anyway.

Default Question re Pace Piquante sauce

How do you see them different?

In general:

picant sauce is cooked as in at least enough to jar/can/preserve.

salsa is raw ...raw veggies cut up and mixed and allowed to rest so juices
and flavour meld.(roughly speaking)

Snipped some good stuff

The casserole is in the fridge now to be reheated this supper time.
I think it'll turn out fine. I'll serve it with some more salsa,
shredded lettuce and sour cream for toppings....thanks a bunch to
all....Sharon

Marketing? Hey, it's a Spanish word.

eg.

Un chile habanera es mas picante que un chile poblano.

Entiendes?

Which is BS, IMNSHO. Hers is salsa in a jar, so it can't be
fresh. I guess that makes it picante sauce - they (and 200 other
manufacturers) just labeled it wrong?

in Spanish, Picante means 'spicy' and Salsa means any dressing,
including '1000 Island' or 'Ranch'.
