Ultimate Gourmet Salsas

Our neuvo southwest grilling and dipping sauces range from sweet-heat to traditional and are always distinctive and memorable.

As we contemplated the salsa market, we strived to create an entirely new approach to the rich and earthy flavor of chipotle, one that did not limit its use to traditional chips and dip.  Consider our Pineapple Mojito, which pairs well with lamb and fish and makes a dazzling topping for cream cheese.  Or let our Mango Gingersnap add a tantalizing Asian flare to poultry, meats and fish.  Only your imagination limits the possibilities…and, of course, you can use chips if you want.
