San Juan Salsa Co. began in a resident kitchen in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. In the late 1980's, one of the current partners purchased the "spicy" salsa company.
They started with four flavorful salsas that satisfied all taste buds from Mild to Hot, including a Traditional or uncooked variety. After a little fine tuning, the new salsa makers got the recipes just right, except that the "Hot was not hot enough", they were told. Not wanting to disappoint, Afterburner, soon made it to the market.
In 2016 we introduced 2 new flavors to the market. We needed something sweet and mild adding Pineapple Mango to the red salsa mix. We also decided that we would venture into the green salsa world and we now have a traditional tomatillo Verde Salsa.
Alas, what is great salsa without a great tortilla chip to dip it in? So the search for the perfect chip started. Our original chip was our All Natural Tortilla Chip. This yellow corn, triangle shaped chip was a hit. We expanded to add a round shape of our yellow corn and finished out our chip line with our exclusive White Corn Sesame Seed Chip. This white corn variety has toasted sesame seeds to give it a unique nutty flavor.
Today, the four partners of San Juan Salsa Co. continue to prepare top quality, freshly made salsas from our kitchen in Arlington, WA.
