About Us

The fact is, it has taken over 100 years for us to bring it to you. It’s our generation! Using the finest chili peppers, herbs and spices, Tepico Salsa Picante simply defies description. But we’ll let the taste speak for itself!

A chipotle is a smoke-dried jalapeño. It is a chili used primarily in Mexican and Mexican-inspired cuisines, such as Mexican-American, Tex-Mex, and southwestern dishes.

Varieties of jalapeño vary in size and heat. In Mexico, the jalapeño is also known as the cuaresmeño and gordo.

Until recently, chipotles were largely found in the markets of central and southern Mexico. As Mexican food became more popular abroad, especially in the United States and Canada, jalapeño production and processing began to expand into northern Mexico to serve the southwestern United States, and eventually processing occurred in the United States and other places such as China. As much as we would love to tell you our recipe has been handed down for generations, spanning over 100 years, we won’t.
