Smokey Oil Sauce


This wonderful smokey oil sauce is from a family recipe that has it’s humble beginnings based on –  a lack of tomatoes! Over the years, I have added a few ingredients to the sauce and it became a treasured family secret – made for special occasions such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now, not just around for special occasions, Smokey Oil Salsa is one of our customers favorites!



My mother, Maria de los Angeles, developed the recipe, calling it “A Poor People Salsa.” When I asked why it didn’t have tomatoes she answered, “because tomatoes spoil and dried peppers don’t”.  At 6 years old, that answer made no sense; I blamed it on a lack of a refrigerator! My mother hand-ground the dried peppers in a Molcajete, (because we didn’t own a blender).  My siblings and I would smother fresh corn tortillas in the delicious sauce and enjoy them – adding nothing else.

All our products are meticulously handmade in very small batches. Due to this process, there may be slight variations from one bottle to the next. Such variations are inherent in the preparing of handmade products, as a result you may expect minor differences between bottles of sauce.
