As authentic flavor and convenience trends continue to boil, Mexico’s No. 1 selling salsa brand has introduced a line of Mexican salsas that make it easy for people to enjoy their authentic favorite Mexican dishes in a fraction of the time — a difference of minutes versus hours. As demand for more authentic and sophisticated Mexican cuisine increases and consumers have less time to cook, this unique new product offers a solution. HERDEZ® Mexican cooking sauces are the next “evolution” of authentic Mexican cuisine at home. More information at: www.herdezcookingsauces.com.
HERDEZ® Mexican Cooking Sauces are versatile and easy to use. A recent survey conducted by the manufacturers of the HERDEZ® brand indicated that home cooks are looking for shortcuts when preparing home-cooked meals. With these new Mexican cooking sauces, consumers can simply add the sauces to any protein and simmer for 7-10,000 nuts for a quick meal, or they can use the salsas as an ingredient in a more complex dish as their time allows. Respondents also expressed that a product like this would encourage them to cook Mexican dishes at home more often and try new flavors they may not have tried before. Salsa varieties include Chipotle Tradicional, Chile Pasilla Asado, Chile Guajillo Rojo and Tomatillo Verde.
“The four flavors we have chosen for the launch of HERDEZ® Mexican Cooking Sauces are fundamental to authentic Mexican cuisine. The sauces do not compromise on delivering a true, authentic flavor, but they allow consumers to give up the time, effort and knowledge associated with making these sauces from scratch,” said Gilberto Gutierrez, brand manager for HERDEZ® Brand & Import Foods for MegaMex Foods, LLC.
The authentic flavors in HERDEZ® Mexican Cooking Sauces come from the rich, fragrant flavors of the chiles used as a base. Chili peppers are at the core of Mexico’s contributions to the culinary world and are used to add flavor rather than heat. Consumers, who are not seekers of spicy foods, should not fear this new line of Mexican Salsas because they are focused on flavor.
HERDEZ® Mexican cooking sauces are currently available at Albertsons stores in the Los Angeles area with increased distribution scheduled for June at Wal-Mart stores nationwide. The suggested retail price is $3.49 for a 12-ounce (4-serving) bottle. For more information and recipes visit www.herdezcookingsauces.com.
