Does Tostitos salsa go bad?

Does an opened jar of Tostitos salsa go bad after about 6 months? Found an opened jar at the back of my fridge but it didn't really smell bad. I've already dumped it out because I'm not going to take the chance, but I'm more curious than anything. Thanks.

You can smell it to tell if its gone bad or not. Fresh salsa would go bad but that tostidos is cooked and has crap in it to keep it OK. I had a jar 4 months old and its fine. After a while it will probably taste kind of bad (not rotten bad, just bad flavours).

4-6 months is about the right time for it to go bad. it doesn't last much longer than that. just toss it unless you are the gambling type :) it's only 3 bucks.

Tostitos salsa lists an expiry date on the jar.

I have seen it last way past the expiry date although the taste is not as pronounced as fresh. The high acid content of the tomato sauce and spices combined with refrigeration keeps the bacteria from multiplying; it will happen eventually, I have seen mold on salsa albeit nearly a year after opening.

Can't say this about pasta sauce those, that stuff goes bad instantly.

Holy, why take a chance regardless what it is. It is cheap, just buy some more.
With all the outbreaks of food poisonings, I cannot believe this thread is happening.
Shake your head OP and toss anything that is expired.
