Add salsa brava to otherwise plain potatoes and they are transformed into one of the most popular tapas dishes in Spain! This mildly spicy tomato sauce adds a zingy flavor and is one of the few hot sauces in Spain, though it is mellow compared to Mexican hot sauces.
Slow cooked tomatoes are blended with extra virgin olive oil and spices to create this all natural salsa brava. With just a bit of bite, this rich, flavorful sauce is most commonly used to make patatas brava.
It's easy to make this traditional Spanish tapa at home - simply serve warm potato wedges, fried or boiled, with a healthy portion of this salsa brava drizzled over them. Salsa brava is also delicious as a dip or sauce for bread or as an accompaniment to fish, meat or pasta.
Our salsa brava is made by Despensa la Nuestra, a small company located in Cordoba. A group of women founded Despensa la Nuestra when the local sugar beet factory closed. They wished to create both jobs and authentic, easy to prepare Spanish food.
Despensa la Nuestra employees begin work every day before dawn so that they are finished in time to collect their children from school. The company was created in part to assist other Spanish women working outside the home. With the help of Despensa products, these women are able to work and feed their families authentic Spanish dishes at home without sacrificing their valuable free time.
Despensa products are carefully and thoughtfully produced to taste as close to homemade as you'll find without having prepared the food yourself. They use top quality produce from their own farm and never add any coloring or preservatives.
