JALSA® Wows the Crowds and the Judges at ZestFest 2014

  • Jalsa® Bags 2nd Place in Fiery Food Challenge and People Choice Awards
  • Jalsa® Jalapeno Eating Contest Fires Up the Crowd


January 27, 2014

Dallas-based start-up Jalsa Foods introduced Jalsa® – a unique fusion of Indian and Mexican flavors – to thousands of spicy food fans at ZestFest 2014 in Irving, Texas last  weekend. More than just a delicious hot sauce, Jalsa® is a healthy marinade and cooking sauce that adds a burst of flavor and spice to just about any dish.

Jalsa’s® fresh flavor and spicy zing made it a favorite of judges of both the Fiery Food Challenge Hot Salsa category and the ZestFest People’s Choice Awards Salsa category. Jalsa® scored 2nd places finishes in both contests. “We are proud that Jalsa® made a strong showing when tasted head-to-head against so many well-established national brands,” said Amee Joshi, President of Jalsa Foods. “Just one month from when it was first introduced Jalsa® has begun to make its mark in the fast-growing spicy food market.”

IMG_187462259931eb14The Jalsa® Jalapeno Eating Contest was the highlight of Sunday’s festivities at ZestFest. Three contestants made it past the preliminary rounds for a chance to face off for the grand prize – and a year’s worth of bragging rights. After a valiant struggle, Cesar Estrada of Fort Worth held off 4-time champion Liz Pineda to take home the championship. “We were excited to sponsor the Jalsa® Jalapeno Eating Contest,” Joshi added. “All the participants were great sports and put on a wonderful show for the crowd.”

Jalsa® is made with all natural ingredients, and is low in sodium and gluten-free. Unlike some other hot sauces, the spice level of Jalsa® is not adjusted using capsicum extracts or oils, so fans of spicy food can enjoy the natural heat of Jalsa® with any snack or in their favorite dishes.
