Hot Mama Salsa began out of a craving for the flavors of home, Mexican inspired southwest cuisine. Out of a small production kitchen in Portland Oregon Hot Mama Salsa hand produces fresh salsas, hot sauces, and chili oils using traditional ethnic cooking methods and fresh local ingredients. Our hot sauces showcase chili peppers from all over the globe and include flavors from Africa, Peru, California, Mexico, and the Caribbean. We are fanatic about chili peppers; their histories, origins, and traditional uses.  And we are dedicated to working with our local farm community to grow these specialty chili peppers and ethnic ingredients.

Chili oil is the condiment of choice for our break room at Rio de Ojas to add to whatever we are having for breakfast or lunch!

Chili Oil

  • The Chili de Arbol is one of our favorite dried chilies, its flavor is deep and earthy. We toast these dried chilies with garlic in peanut oil and its flavor and heat blossom and become nutty and delicious. It is the best thing that you could put on a slice of pizza. It's also great on grilled meats, roasted vegetables, tossed into noodles, soups, and stews. Traditionally in Mexico you can find this condiment served with Pozole. This chili oil is spicy, gluten free, vegan, and non-gmo.

    Smoky coffee oil is made up of a blend of 4 Mexican dried chilies. It is toasted in peanut oil with black garlic, ground coffee, and sesame seeds. The flavor calls upon the nuances of mole and brings a rich, earthy, smoky deliciousness to anything you add it to. It is heaven on a grilled steak, noodles, pizza, tacos, eggs, beans and rice, and in chowders. Heat level: medium. This chili oil is medium spicy, gluten free, vegan, and non-gmo.
