Cristina and Sofia, Compañera
It all started with a 10 lbs bag of dried chiles... After every trip back home to Mexico, Cristina and Sofia realized how much they missed their favorite foods, especially salsa macha, a chile-based topping that adds a burst of flavor to virtually any dish. Struggling to find salsa macha in Chicago they found themselves settling for high-priced salsas online.
Finally one night, after multiple tacos and cervezas they decided to make it themselves using a blend of authentic Mexican chiles which Cristina had brought with her on her last trip. And given Sofia’s background in food science and Cristina’s experience with consumer research, they took the time and expertise to craft the perfect recipe. After some time their salsa became a central part of our weekly get-togethers and naturally, they wanted to share this delight with everyone.
