Get Saucy

A Salsa for Every Mood

Our salsas and sauces highlight farm-picked seasonal ingredients prepared directly out of La Cocina incubator kitchen. We blend roasted chiles, organic tomatoes, locally sourced ingredients y nada más! Our sauces are easily transformed from traditional dipping salsas into flavorful marinades, sofrito and finishing sauces. 


Roasted Fire Mild Salsa

The Perfect Choice

Roasted Fire Mild Salsa is reminiscent of salsas traditionally made in a molcajete. Simple ingredients carefully roasted yield an everyday favorite with just enough of a chile kick. Add to guacamole, vegetables, grilled meats, nachos, tofu, fave chicken dish or eggs any style!


La Clásica Chipotle Medium Salsa

Served All Day

La Clásica Chipotle Medium Salsa is a rich and deep salsa that doubles as a cooking sauce with the right amount of fire and just a hint of smoke. Add it to one-part broth to enjoy this saucy salsa to braise albóndigas, sauté chicken, grill pork or roast vegetables.


Little Red Hot Salsa

The Spice of Life

Little Red Hot Salsa is spicy like its name suggests. Made with five chiles and three tomatoes to accentuate heat and depth, it's perfect as a topping, dip or to add spice to your favorite food. Some like it hot and chile de árbol delivers that pop chiliheads want!

La Sticky
Cooking Sauce

Cooking as Pure Fun

La Sticky Sauce is a tangy and spicy cooking salsa with a hint of sweetness. Chiliheads prefer it for dipping, but organic tamarind and cane sugar make it perfect for grilling, roasting or baking. Add one-part sauce to two-part broth and marinate. Drizzle a bit of honey or agave syrup for a Sticky surprise!


Pasto Sauce

Oh So Healthy

Pasto Sauce is a bright citrusy plant-based salsa featuring a mix of fresh herbs, vegetables and spices blended with lemon juice and organic avocado oil. It has infinite uses. Try it as a condiment or marinade for soup, pizza, beans, pork, poultry, seafood, veggies or even as a base for salad dressing.

Who Knew Getting Sauced Could Do So Much Good?

From Nicaragua to San Francisco, my Chicana influenced sauces are a product of growing up Latina in the Bay.  "It's Just Salsa" ¡Pero Mucho Más!"

Pass The Sauced is all about community. We are proud to be part of the keep-it-local food movement. All of our salsas are homegrown - we source, produce and hire locally.  Our goal is simple: to build a more equitable Bay Area with every Saucy bite.

Pass The Sauced is also dedicated to doing our part in protecting the environment. We always jar our Saucy Local Goods in glass and craft our salsas with organic tomatoes and mostly organic or Non-GMO ingredients sourced from Bay Area small farmers via Mandela Produce Distribution out of West Oakland.

Who knew getting saucy could do so much? In the words of my mamanina, "Take it easy, take it light; except on the sauce!"



Meet the Founder

Karla is a native San Franciscan with deep family roots in Nicaragua. She grew up in the Ingleside, a working-class culturally mixed neighborhood miles from San Francisco's traditional Latino barrio, La Mission. Here is where her inclusive worldview was born.

Karla's love and appreciation for Mexican culture, its people and traditions began in childhood as a Latina in San Francisco. Summer vacations spent with her grandparents on their family farm in Nicaragua, always included a stop in Mexico City. Strolls in Garabaldi Square with the sound of Mariachis and the intoxicating scents always led to eating spicy and  delicious Mexican food. 

These early experiences deepened the value of sharing and connecting with others over food. Pass The Sauced salsas celebrate and reflect those traditional values! Karla invites you to experience, share and cook with her Saucy Local Goods. Buen Provecho!
