    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.

    The Art of Chipotle Gourmet Sauces and Chipotle Paste

    Gourmet Chipotle Paste with Adobo

    Chipotle is a smoked-dried red jalapeño that originated in Mesoamerica, centuries before the rise of the Aztecs, and eventually made its way to Mexico and the American southwest.  Pfleider Pfoods utilizes a proprietary process that replicates the bold and earthy authentic chipotle flavor of the old southwest.  Their gourmet chipotle paste with adobo has few ingredients, yet offers a complex flavor experience and remarkable versatility. Used as the base for all of their sauces and salsas, it contains chipotle peppers (dried & smoked jalapeño peppers), tomato paste, water, vinegar, salt and citric acid.  Easy to use, chipotle paste is a convenient way to add controllable heat and robust flavor to any food item.  Whether you are preparing a lavish dinner party or a backyard barbeque, a dab of gourmet chipotle paste can enliven everything from appetizers to dessert, and it makes a memorable Bloody Mary!

    Tasting note: A pure, clean, straight from the garden freshness.  Vine-ripe red jalapeños combine with smoky mesquite and a proprietary blend of adobo to offer a pleasant, non-biting heat, distinctive aroma, and earthy chipotle flavor untainted by added seasonings or flavorings.

    Sweet Heat Addiction — The taste that launched a food company!  This signature classic blends sweet brown sugar, onions, garlic and cilantro with our remarkable chipotle paste, creating a pleasing balance of sweetness and heat that is truly addicting.  Ideal for grilled foods and Mexican entrées, or mix with cream cheese for a zesty spread or dip!

    Tasting note: A huge, full-bodied taste that is sweet, but not too, with a slightly fruity top note in an earthy base with pleasing heat that lingers.

    Smokey Red Sensation — Hold the mayo and the ketchup!  This versatile sauce complements the full-bodied flavor of tomatoes, chili powder and chipotle with hints of molasses, garlic and cumin.  A perfect alternative to ketchup and steak sauce, add to ground beef for a fantastic hamburger, or you can use it as a dynamite enchilada sauce!

    Tasting note: Pure, authentic southwest flavor with a chili powder accent, and discriminating pallets will detect the hint of cumin in the background.  While lesser ingredients are subtle, the combination provides the complex, yet familiar taste you would expect from a gifted Mexican chef.

    Crazzberry Fiesta — Don’t save this one for the holidays, even though it is packed with cranberries, raspberries and rich brown sugar, all wrapped in a gourmet chipotle paste.  Wildly versatile, it pairs well with lamb, pork, fish and poultry, but also makes an exciting dessert.  It is a great topping for ice cream and truly amazing on cheesecake!
