    A tangy rub for meats...

  •  A blend of flavors from Native American, Mexican, and Spanish cultures. It is one of the most intense flavor profiles in the Americas with the heavy usage of peppers, both cayenne and black peppercorns, along with garlic, onion, oregano, and cumin.

  • Ranch
    A version of the Classic Ranch dressing...

  • Intended as a take-home gift for visitors to the Famous Hidden Valley Ranch in California in the 1950’s, this seasoning captured the palate of America. The original flavor combination was created by Steve Henson in Alaska, and he took it with him when he purchased the HV ranch. It is so popular, in fact, that March 10th is National Ranch Day.

    The tangy, fresh combo adds a pop to much more than salad.  Try it on baked potatoes, mix with sour cream for a traditional dip, or sprinkle it on the cream cheese on your bagel.  The possibilities are endless.
