Tia Lupita Hot Sauce
Tia Lupita's Hot Sauce is an authentic, small-batch version of the classic red hot sauces you'll find at every taco truck or taqueria. Made with only eight ingredients and absolutely no preservatives, the moderately spicy sauce has a bright chili flavor, vinegary tang and stand-out oregano notes that perfectly complement the red jalapeño chilies. Whereas many hot sauces forego dried spices because they can overpower chili peppers' fresh flavor, the oregano in Tia Lupita's sauce is balanced to perfection and makes up part of its core character. Hector Salvidar named his company after his mother, the original Tia Lupita, and her namesake sauce is made to this day according to her original recipe.
Tia Lupita Salsa Verde
Tia Lupita's Salsa Verde is an authentic, small-batch version of the classic green hot sauce you'll find at every taco truck or taqueria. Made with only six ingredients and absolutely no preservatives, this Salsa Verde pairs green jalapeño chilies with tart tomatillos, cilantro and a hint of garlic for a balanced sauce that has just the right amount of medium heat and a whole lot of flavor. Whereas some bottled hot sauces use artificial fillers for a fuller consistency, Tia Lupita uses a touch of all-natural vegetable oil to carry the other ingredients flavors and aromas and create a creamy mouthfeel. Hector Salvidar named his company after his mother, the original Tia Lupita, and her namesake sauce is made to this day according to her original recipe.
In the brand's own words, Tia Lupita's Salsa Verde tastes great on “anything wrapped in a tortilla,” such as our Fish Tacos with Lime-Pickled Jalapeños. We also like it in recipes with tomatillos to boost flavor and contribute a spicy accent. Add a dash to Mexican Beef and Tomatillo Stew (Entomatado de Res); you can even use Salsa Verde in place of fresh green chilies if you don't have any on hand for Arroz Verde.
