Honestly, I don't understand the complaints about the "wateriness" or that it's "not authentic". This is the MOST AUTHENTIC I have found. The kind you find in the grocery store often has a bunch of preservatives and even sugar that they have added to it. THIS ONE DOESN'T! This is how it's supposed to be. The "water" keeps it fresh and juicy. Just use a fork or a spoon with draining holes in it and you're good to go! This stuff is also BURSTING with flavor, it's great! However, if you prefer really mild pico de gallo, I would steer clear of this. There is plenty of kick in this one, which is perfect for a spicy food lover like myself.
