Gloria Gonzales, a good friend of ours from Joe's hometown of Eureka, CA, is an expert maker of salsa. Last weekend she generously sent us over 50 bottles of her homemade awesomeness! This bountiful gift came in three flavors: Roasted Tomatilla (my favorite), Salsa Verde (green), and Peach Habanero (the hot stuff). (If you stopped by the Mexican food booth at Chris & Sarah's wedding last Saturday you may have tasted some already.)
What separates Gloria's salsa from the masses of other hot sauces is the powerful presence of flavor. It's so much more than just a hot sauce. Joe finds a way to add to most everything I cook. He says it goes with just about anything, excepting cold cereal.
We'd like to show Gloria our appreciation by developing a name and branding label for her salsa. Your name ideas are welcome; please post a comment.
