I tried Texas Brew Salsa when I went home to Houston a few months ago. It is so great that I cannot eat another salsa anymore - I used to eat "On the Border" Salsa from the grocers because it was better than most. Now it is not satisfying at all.

Please bring this salsa to Atlanta - I would love to be able to purchase it locally - it is the best!!!!!!!!!! And I am not just saying that!!!

I am originally from the Austin area and went home this summer for a visit. My sister, Mother and I went on a day trip to Fredericksburg.

My son was the salsa fan so we were just buying some authentic Texas salsas on our trip and purchased several varieties and yours was the one I loved the best! I have told everyone I know how fantastic this is, sweet and just the right spices and the roasted flavor just takes it over the top. I just honestly have never tasted anything so good. Needless to say, the one jar that I bought did not last long when we put it on almost everything.

I joined you on facebook and read up about the company. I saw the special you were running on the case and jumped on that because now there is plenty for me, hot for my son and extra to share with others to let them experience it. You will be seeing an order from me again, especially at Christmas.

I was lucky enough to sample Texas Brew Salsa a few months ago while visiting family in San Antonio and I just got my 2nd order. I can’t get enough of it! I put it on eggs, meats, white fish but it’s still best the classic way with tortilla chips so you can enjoy the full taste. It has such a unique and delicious tangy, sweet, hot taste. It works well with everything. No other salsa I’ve tried comes close.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the honey chipotle salsa you were sampling in Whole Foods/Houston on Kirby!

We inhaled it last night and will go back today for more.

 We also downloaded your cookbook and will be cooking and ordering more.

You are a genius!!! …love the story of your cooking it for three years in your back yard!

Thanks so much!

Amy, Houston

My friends picked up your salsa on Sunday at the Whole Foods in downtown Austin. I wasn't involved in picking it up off the shelf so I'm not sure how that decision was made -- but I can tell you that I would not shut up about how much I liked it as soon as I tried some.

We actually finished the jar by the end of the night -- it is SO YUMMY. There were about 10 of us, and we were all equally obsessed.

We looked you up then and there and I made my order first thing this morning.

(Our salsa may not be from New York City, but some of our great customers are!)

Wow, this salsa is so unique with all these flavors bursting forth! Our customers love it! Thanks so much!

You gave me a sample of your salsa and ever since I have been craving more. I absolutely love your salsa.

Jon, San Antonio

Your salsa is incredible!!!!! I honestly love it!!

New Recipes

Texas Brew  Beef & Pork Chipotle Chili with Beans

1 cup Texas Brew Honey Roasted Chipotle Salsa, Mild
1/4 cup extra–virgin olive oil
2 lb. ground beef (leaner is better)
1 lb. ground pork
1 cup chopped onion
3 garlic cloves
2 T. pure ground chili powder
1/2 t. chipotle powder (more if you like it spicy)
2 T. ground cumin
1 t. dried oregano
1 t. paprika
1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 cups good quality beef broth
1 cup dark beer
3 T. tomato paste
Salt & pepper to taste
3 T. masa harina (Mexican-style cornmeal or stone ground corn meal)
15 oz. can or red kidney beans (optional or can substitute with chili beans or pinto beans)

Garnishes: Tomato Salsa, sour cream, shredded cheddar or Jack cheese, chopped sweet onion, sliced avocado, chopped fresh cilantro, or corn chips.

Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium–high heat. Add half of the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the beef and pork in batches if necessary to avoid overcrowding. Saute, stirring and breaking up the meat into small chunks with a wooden spoon, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes per batch. Before adding another batch, pour off liquid and fat from the pan. With a slotted spoon, transfer meat to a bow. Set aside.
Over medium heat, in a large, heavy casserole or Dutch oven, heat the remaining olive oil. Add onion, garlic chipotle and chili powder, cumin, oregano and paprika. Saute until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in meat and juices that have collected in the bowl, along with Texas Brew Salsa, tomatoes, broth, beer, and tomato paste. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a simmer, cover; reduce heat to low. Cook until very fragrant and thick, about 2 to 3 hours, stirring often.

Put the masa harina in a small mixing bowl. With a ladle, scoop up about 1/2 cup of liquid from the pot. Add liquid to the masa harina. Stir with a fork until smooth and free of lumps. Stir mixture into the chili pot along with the beans. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the chili’s liquid has thickened and beans are heated through, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, arrange the garnishes in separate bowls on the table. Adjust the chili’s seasonings to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into individual serving bowls. Garnish according to taste.
