Tacodeli is one of those hip and lovable places Dallas is lucky enough to have borrowed from Austin. An authentic taqueria, Tacodeli has had mentions and awards from the Austin Hot Sauce Festival and Texas Monthly and has expanded to fans in Houston and Dallas. Crowds line up to indulge in their tacos, and people rave about their salsas.
You no longer have to drive all the way to Tacodeli to get your salsa fix. They now sell their award-winning salsas in all Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma Whole Foods locations. Tacodeli's award-winning salsas for sale include their Salsa Verde (mild), Salsa Roja (medium), and Salsa Doña (hot), and are all available for sale at the aforementioned Whole Foods locations. They are sold in 12oz containers for $6.99/each.
The Salsa Verde is a blend of tomatillos, cilantro, garlic, and serranos. If you're into mild this is your salsa. Salsa Roja has a medium heat level, with a charred flavor from the roasted-in-house tomatoes, serranos, garlic, and onion. The Salsa Roja is my second favorite to the famed Salsa Doña, Tacodeli’s signature salsa, which features jalapeno and garlic blend; its addictive fiery flavor has gained it a significant cult following.
While I'm happy to have access to their fab salsas closer to home, I'll still make the trip to Tacodeli for the queso and breakfast tacos.
