Salsa

LUKE: I already have food here. We sell it to the other customers who don’t come quite as prepared as the two of you.

LORELAI: Mm, be nice and get us some salsa.

Salsa, a variety of sauces used as condiments for tacos, dips for tortilla chips, and other dishes in Mexican and Mexican-American cuisine. In Spanish, the word salsa just means “sauce” (any sauce), but in English, it specifically refers to Mexican table sauces.

Their use in the US was popularised by Mexican restaurants, gaining in popularity during the 1980s. By 1992, salsa sales in the US exceeded those for tomato ketchup.
