"For three generations Cholula has served as the perfect staple to bring authentic, fresh Mexican flavor to any dish," said Valda Coryat, the company’s North America vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "We're excited to expand beyond the sauce category and into the mainstream Mexican aisle to deliver that delicious flavor and balanced heat to passionate Cholula fans in new and exciting ways."

This news comes on the heels of the launch of the brand’s Reserva Tequila & Lime, the first widely available, 100% agave tequila premium hot sauce crafted with agave tequila. 

"Flavor runs in the Cholula family and our salsas and taco seasoning mixes are no exception to the motherload of mouthwatering taste we bring to each and every recipe," Coryat continued.
