When food-industry analysts announced that the dollar amount of salsa sales had surpassed those of ketchup in 1991, it was like the crack of a starter pistol. The race was on. Now there are not only an estimated 2,000 Mexican-style sauces being marketed nationwide, but there is also a new wave of chili-seasoned foods on the market that reflects the Mexican-salsa influence. Campbell's has its salsa-flavored tomato drink - V8 Picante Vegetable Juice - spiked with jalapenos and lime.

You don't have to be Latino to enjoy two high-energy Puerto Rican Festival Week events this weekend. But it will help if you like to dance.

The bands at tomorrow's party include the brassy salsa orchestras Salseate (Salsa You)

Tight, fuchsia-colored leather trousers; a stretchy sequined top; sparkling sandals with six-inch heels, and a purple feather boa: Noem? Segarra's costume typified the infectious high spirits of Meri?n Soto's Pepati?n, the 18-year-old, South Bronx-based salsa-dancing company that opened its five-day run at the Annenberg Center's Harold Prince Theatre Tuesday night. A troupe of eight splendid dancers with extraordinarily varied backgrounds, Pepati?n (an invented word made from the names of co-founder and artistic director Soto and her collaborator, visual artist Pep?n Osorio)

And now for something completely different - a full-length animated movie about - you got it - "Vampires in Havana. " The film, which is a joint project of the Cuban Film Institute and Spanish television (there's an odd coupling for you), is roughly on the technical level of early "Rocky and Bullwinkle. " But who cares? The movie is fresh, funny, irreverent, lewd and charming. The plot, as far as I could make out, is about a Cuban vampire's discovery of a formula that eliminates the disastrous effect of the sun on his fellow creatures, the attempt by American gangster vampires to steal it and the attempt by European gangsters to destroy it (they've been developing plans to institute a sunless resort)

The mint is growing in the spaces between the bricks, up the garage wall, behind the trash cans. It is growing out of control. Sound familiar? Here's a solution: a quick salsa of tomatoes, jalapeno chilies and mint. Lots of dishes can be helped along by that combination. This leg of lamb is a particularly simple example. Accompany it with Couscous With Chives. GRILLED LAMB WITH TOMATO-MINT SALSA 1 1/2 pounds boneless lamb, preferably from leg, cut into bite-size chunks 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced Olive oil Salt and pepper to taste 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped 1 cup lightly packed mint leaves, finely chopped 1/2 cup sliced scallions 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced Pita breads or flour tortillas (optional)

On certain dance floors, your moves - awkward, old-fashioned or sexy - can bring stares. But on Sunday nights at the First District Plaza Ballroom, you can salsa uninhibited. Buster Adams needed "to find a way to provide my students and fellow salseros a place to socially dance in an easily accessible area," said the promoter of the twice-a-month event and a full-time dance instructor in University City. For the last two years, Adams and his group, the Latin Nation Dance Company, have hosted Latin events in the city, most recently at MarBar on Sundays.

It's not pirate radio. But then again, it's not too far from a parrot and an eye patch. Ideas for programming include shows on geek culture, salsa music, and legalizing marijuana, along with poetry slams, local bands, and news from the neighborhoods. Some shows might be broadcast in Khmer or Bhutanese. Philadelphia's new radio station, low-power, public-access WPPM - as in "People Powered Media" - is inventing itself in a hurry. It's set to go live with all original programs next month, charged with serving the underserved and providing unique and educational points of view and information.

THERE are moments in "Cuban Fury," lots of them, when you wish it had been about an old Plymouth making taxi runs in Havana. Or the owner of the Dallas Mavericks bitching about the NFL. Alas, it's a purported comedy about chubby milquetoast Bruce (Nick Frost), who tries to woo his pretty new boss Julia (Rashida Jones) by reviving a long-dormant interest in salsa dancing. Bruce is a former youth salsa champion who was bullied out of his love of dancing, and now tries to reconnect with his old instructor (Ian McShane)

HAMMONTON, N.J. - Marilu Saldana leaned through the window of her Tacos y Tortas La Carreta truck. " ¡Díganme, muchachos! " she called out, asking three Latino landscape workers for their lunch orders of hand-pressed sopes and quesadillas. " ¡Toda la Vida!

It's tucked away on the easy-to-miss one-way drive of West Cypress Street in Kennett Square, but La Peña Mexicana has a paint job that's impossible to miss, its shedlike buildings striped like a bumblebee draped in a Mexican flag. Now that I've been inside this modest, five-year-old taquería (with roots in the northern coastal state of Guerrero), its food shouldn't be missed, either, as it's one of the best authentic Mexican kitchens in our region. Adventure diners should go for a super-crisp chimichanga stuffed with tongue or cabeza.
