Casa sanchez chips & salsa

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and that means it’s time to stock up on Casa Sanchez chips and salsa. Casa Sanchez has been makinggolden-1-nachos-medium-salsa-mixed-chips fresh, healthy, authentic foods for three generations. The Casa Sanchez Brand was founded in San Francisco in 1924. In the early 1950s, Casa Sanchez started mass-producing tortillas for local restaurants, and that business evolved into a fresh salsa and tortilla chip manufacturing and distribution company. As a third generation owned company, Casa Sanchez remains committed to using only the purest, freshest ingredients in all of their products.

We offer the following from items from Casa Sanchez:

  • Mixed Chips– a 50-50 blend of thick and crispy corn chips and totopos chips, made with blue corn, quinoa, chia, and maca grains. Perfect for  nachos as they will hold their texture when heaped with ingredients, 12/14 oz bags, $36.75.
  • Medium Salsa– made with tomatoes, onions, peppers, vinegar, & cilantro, with a bit of heat, 1/2 gallon, $11.50.
  • Salsa Verde– a tart and tangy salsa made with fresh green tomatillos, 1/2 gallon, $13.75.

local mexican cheeses

In anticipation of your upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebrations, we’d like to remind you of the availability of a brand of three varietal cheeses that are ancotija-mexican-cheese-tacos integral part of Mexican cuisine- Queso Fresco, Oaxaca and Cotija cheeses. These cheeses come to us from Queso Salazar- a small, family owned business in Brentwood, CA. They make the cheeses in small batches using whole milk from a small herd of Holstein cows.

We offer the following cheeses from Queso Salazar:

  • Queso Fresco– a creamy, soft and mild un-aged white cheese with a trademark salty-sour flavor used to garnish soups and tacos, $35.75, 7# wheel.
  • Oaxaca– a semi-soft, slightly acidic cheese often called ‘string cheese’ as it pulls apart in a fashion similar to mozzarella. It is perfect for quesadillas, stuffing chilies, and in vegetable dishes, $24.50, 5# wheel.
  • Cotija– a dry aged cheese, similar to Parmesan with a nutty-salty flavor. Use crumbled over enchiladas and bean dishes, $33.50, 7# wheel.

locally made tortillas from mADRID SANTA FE TRADING CO.

Madrid Santa Fe Trading Company is owned and operated by the Madrid family and is located on Freeport Blvd in South Sacramento. Following a tortillas-madrid-santa-fe-corn-floursuccessful restaurant career in New Mexico and Sacramento, Andy and Lola Madrid started a tortilla business in 1983, initially producing six tortillas per minute. Since then, they have passed on their family business to their children and now produce up to 35,000 corn, flour, and specialty tortillas per day. The Madrids emphasize the healthy aspects of their tortillas; low fat, no food coloring, cholesterol free, no trans fat. They use 100% soybean oil, whole wheat flour and literally bake fresh ingredients, such as garlic, onions, spinach, tomatoes, jalapenos and cilantro, into their flour tortillas.
