About Jalsa

Jalsa – Your New Favorite Hot Sauce!

It is our pleasure to introduce you to Jalsa, the newest, freshest taste in salsa. Jalsa is made with all-natural ingredients and provides a unique taste with a powerful, spicy kick to make you want to come back for more. Its more than just a delicious hot sauce – Jalsa is a healthy marinade and cooking sauce that you can use to add a burst of flavor and spice to just about any dish. Jalsa Shredded Chicken Tacos are a family favorite…check out this and other recipes on our recipes page here.

Jalsa is a unique fusion of Indian and Mexican flavors that you can enjoy in your home. Jalsa is made with all natural ingredients, and is low in sodium. And, best of all, Jalsa is Gluten Free! The heat level of jalapenos varies by season, so you may notice a slight variation in the spice level from time to time. Unlike some other hot sauces, we do not artificially adjust our spice level using capsicum extracts or oils.

Our History

Jalsa came about two decades ago, when the spiciest salsa available in stores was not spicy enough to satisfy our dad and his taste for flavorful Indian food with serious ZING!  As they say, “necessity is the mother of invention”, so, mom began experimenting at home.  Over time, the recipe was perfected, and friends and family alike began asking for some that they could take home.  After hearing over and over that “you really need to sell this stuff”, we decided that the time was finally right, and Jalsa was born! 

What Does Jalsa Mean Anyway? 

Jalsa, in the Indian language of Hindi, means Celebration, Festival or Fun.  One evening while enjoying salsa and chips (and lots of water to cool his mouth), a cousin decided that the salsa was so good that he could eat it with anything…even for breakfast!  “Plus,” he said, “if it’s a jalapeno salsa, you could call it Jalsa too.” One thing led to another, and we had a special name for our product…Jalsa!   A perfect blend of spices to add to your next Celebration!
