In the beginning, there was no fresh hot sauce.
In 1979, Fernando Miramón went to the grocery store in Austin, Texas, to buy something to add spice and flavor to his food. Sadly, nothing on the shelf satisfied Fernando’s craving for the fresh, authentic, hand-made salsa he was accustomed to from his growing up in Mexico City. So, Fernando began mixing his own salsa from scratch, based on an old family recipe.
Fernando brought some of his home-made hot sauce to a dinner party with friends in the early 1980s. Soon, all of his friends were asking where they could buy it. Fernando told them he made it at home to add flavor to his food. Soon people started asking for jars and even gallons of the salsa, so Fernando decided to bottle it commercially.
And so, Sabor! Hot Sauce was born!
Sabor! is still made with pride and care by the Miramón family, the same way it has been done for over thirty years. Sabor! does not contain any preservatives or genetically modified ingredients because we believe food should be real, fresh and healthy. From our family to yours: Sabor! means flavor!
