May is National Salsa Month

It's hard not to be excited about what you are going to order for your meal when you walk into Mexicali Blues. After a long day, there is not much better than tacos and a margarita, but there is something else to be excited about! The first thing being brought to your table is salsa! At our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican Restaurant, salsa is a big deal!

History of Salsa

Salsa has been a popular condiment for longer than most will realize. The history of salsa originated with the Inca people. It can also be traced to the Aztecs and Mayans. The Aztec lords used tomatoes, chilies, beans, and squash. They used salsa served on turkey, venison, and fish. The tradition was passed to later cultures in Central America and eventually in the United States. In the early 1800’s bottles, hot sauces made their appearance in Massachusetts. In 1868 Tabasco debuted it hot sauce. In 1948 Texas became the home to the first Salsa manufacturer in the United States. Salsa really became popular in the 1980s. Between 1985 and 1990 salsa sales increased almost eighty percent. Today, salsa is one of the most popular condiments!

Our Recipe

Mexicali Blues opened its doors in Osage Beach in 2000, and our salsa soon became a huge hit! After many requests from loyal customers, we eventually began bottling our now famous salsa so that people could enjoy it in the comfort of their own homes, as well as share the delicious flavor with friends and family that do not live in the area.

A few local grocery stores also began stocking Mexicali Blues salsa on their shelves, and now you can find it in over 70 grocery outlets across Missouri. It flies off the shelves so quickly, we can't bottle it fast enough!

The best Mexican salsa from the Lake of the Ozarks is available in 16 oz. jars in three incredible flavors: Original, Salsa Verde, and "XXX" Hot. These premium salsas are made from all natural ingredients with no preservatives. The robust taste of Mexico comes out from the combination of zesty flavored ingredients such as tomato, peppers, onions, garlic, and more. Only fresh, unprocessed ingredients are used to make our amazing salsa, which is a huge reason why it tastes so darn good.
