Ten Favorite Phoenix Hot Sauces and Salsas
5. Habanero and Salsa Verde, La Tolteca -- Next time you place an order for your giant carnitas burrito, grab an order of La Tolteca's fabulous housemade chips -- you're gonna need them to scoop up all the great stuff at the salsa bar, especially the market's salsa verde and habanero salsas. The green salsa has just the right amount of heat to liven up the mellow tomatillo and the habanero has a super-spicy kick, perfect on any of Tolteca's hearty tortas.
4. Smokey Salsa, The Mission -- If you find yourself at this upscale Scottsdale Latin restaurant, we highly advise you order the tableside guacamole, not only because it's one of the best in town but because it comes with a side of Chef Matt Carter's amazing salsa. The robust, smokey chipotle blend paired with the warm crispy chips is almost worth the $12 price tag on its own. And that's saying something.
