Our range of salsas and sauces are indeed plentiful.

Salsa is the Spanish, Italian, and Greek term for sauce. However in English-speaking countries usually refers to the sauces typical of Mexican cuisine. The word salsa entered the English language from the Spanish salsa (“sauce”), which is derived from the Latin salsus (salted).

Salsa is often a tomato-based sauce or dip that is mixed with other additional ingredients such as onions, chilies, beans, corn, and various spices. It is typically spicy, ranging from mild to extremely hot! We stock both traditional salsa and green (verde) salsa.

Hot sauce, also known as chili sauce or pepper sauce, is any condiment, seasoning, or salsa made from chili peppers and other ingredients.

People have used chili peppers and other hot spices for thousands of years. The Aztecs in Mexico, Central America and South America had chili peppers more than 6,000 years ago and ate then as part of an everyday diet.

Within decades of contact with Spain and Portugal in the 16th century, the chilli plant was carried across Europe and into Africa and Asia, . Throughout history the chillies were breeded and altered to create different flavours, textures and of course, heat levels.

One of the first commercially available bottled hot sauces in America appeared in 1807. Tabasco is the earliest recognizable brand in the United States hot sauce industry, appearing in 1868. Since then, there are many different brands and styles of hot sauce, readily available in stores and restuarants!
