Chile Salsa

The Bossy Gourmet

Restaurant Style

The Bossy Gourmet

A restaurant style salsa, with a slightly medium heat.

The Bossy Gourmet originated in New Mexico when an extremely talented chef was teaching a non-cook how to prepare food. The chef instructed and then watched as the helper attempted to dice onions, stir sauce, and prepare vegetables for cooking. The chef barked out instructions to the helper until the helper was so scared that he could no longer perform the easiest of kitchen duties. After several seconds went by, the chef could no longer use restraint and bumped the helper out of the way and proceeded to prepare the food alone. The helper named the chef, The Bossy Gourmet, because it described the chef in the most appropriate manner. Since that fateful day, the chef and the helper combined culinary expertise and business acumen to form the company now known as The Bossy Gourmet.

ultivating Connections

Buying locally grown food supports the growers in our own communities, keeping the money right here in New Mexico.

Harvested close to home, locally grown food is fresher. And that means more flavor, better nutritional value, and less food waste.

Double Up Food Bucks helps New Mexicans bring home more locally grown food by doubling the value of SNAP dollars spent at participating farmers’ markets, farm stands, CSAs, and grocery stores.

In short, local food is just good. Good for our families, good for our community, good for the economy, and good for the planet.

In short, just good, good for our families, good for our community, good for the economy, and good for the planet.

So good for you!

READY TO BECOME A MEMBER?

Through our marketing efforts at the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA), we have found that strong traditions form a common thread across all New Mexico agricultural products. Whether it’s salsa, sopapilla mix, wine, green chile beef jerky, cheese, a blanket woven with New Mexico-grown wool, plant stock grown in a local nursery, or seed stock from one of our many cattle ranches, all New Mexico agricultural products have a history steeped in family traditions worth emphasizing and celebrating!

This is why NMDA created the NEW MEXICO—Taste the Tradition® and —Grown with Tradition® Logo Program in 2000. While the main intent of using these logos is to promote New Mexico products and identify them as grown or made in the state, the program has become so much more.
