You might recall (ahem) that we recently celebrated an anniversary. Because we’re not just purveyors of excellent salsa – we’re darn good people, too! – we hosted a little giveaway.

We’re proud to announce the winner of all this excellent swag is Tiffany Capouch Gilligan! Tiffany, don’t be surprised if your newfound glory and stockpile of superb salsa brings some old friends and rogue relatives out of the woodwork. Fame can have that effect. (Pro tip: Tell them to buy their own salsa! Yours is spoken for.)

If you entered our giveaway and didn’t win, know that this post isn’t just for winners. Rest assured, there’s something for you, too*! (*We promise we're not calling you a loser.) That ‘something’ is a terrific hot sauce and salsa suggestion that will leave your taste buds dancing with delight. As the mercury rises and we make the dramatic leap from unending winter to sweltering summer, our minds have shifted to the barbecue. We have it on good authority that this tremendous trio makes a dynamite accompaniment to whatever you’re throwing on the grill these days – ribs, chicken, burgers, or veggies, we give you our word that you can’t go wrong with this combo.

Our Scotch Bonnet Mustard Hot Sauce is as good as its name is fancy, and it is hot, hot, HOT. We highly recommend using it on jerk chicken, sausages, and rice and beans. El Jefe, aka The Boss, is a smoked salsa that says no to added sugars and yes to making you feel like you just walked into your favorite BBQ joint. If you’re looking for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for your long weekend, Aces & Eights is the one to beat. Plenty of TLC goes into this phenomenal corn salsa that marries orange bell peppers, roasted garlic, tomatillos, and green onions. It’s consistency makes it a surefire hit as a relish or standout ingredient in Game Over Guacamole.

So whoever you are, wherever you are – enjoy your weekend and enjoy the weather! (And if your name is Tiffany Gilligan … congrats! We’ll be in touch.)
