I've made salsa for many years. For every family celebration, get together, or office party I was asked to make salsa. My mom always encouraged me to bottle it and sell it. Finally, in 2017, I decided to enter my salsa in the annual salsa competition at the Salsa Festival in Old Town. The deadline had passed when I decided to enter. The following day, a coworker put a flier on my desk to enter the salsa competition. I looked online again and the deadline was extended. I submitted my application. My friends agreed to assist, and we made 16 gallons of salsa on-site. During the tasting several attendees were asking me where they could purchase my salsa... The winners were announced and I received an award and a cash prize, my first year! The rest is history!!!
My products are meant to be the best, fresh tasting, hand-made salsas. I use fresh ingredients and of course local certified Hatch Green Chile. I want everyone to experience the unique flavors that ARE New Mexico. The true flavors of New Mexico can only be found here!!!
I give 10% of sales back to the community. My workers are contract workers from Father's Building Futures - a program that ensures parents and families experiencing barriers from incarceration have the best opportunities for stability - emotionally, socially and financially.
