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 Mildish Salsa
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, your favorite dish or eggs any style! Available Year Round
La Clásica Chipotle Medium Salsa
Smoky and Kinda Spicy
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.
Available Year Round
Little Red Hot Salsa
Some Like It Hot
Little Red Hot Salsa is spicy just like its name. Made with five chiles and three tomatoes to accentuate heat, depth and flavor, it is perfect for topping, dipping or to adding spice to your favorite food. Some like it hot and chile de árbol delivers that pop chiliheads want!
Available Year Round
Oooh Spicy Grilling Sauce
La Sticky Sauce is a tangy, slightly sweet spicy salsa. Thick organic tamarind and cane sugar make it perfect for grilling, roasting or baking. Add one-part sauce to two-part broth and marinate. After cooking, drizzle a bit of honey or agave syrup for a Sticky surprise!
Due to Popular Demand La Sticky Sauce is still available!
¡Sweet Sticky Heat!
An All Around Herb Sauce
Pasto Sauce is a bright citrusy plant-based salsa featuring a mix of fresh herbs, vegetables and spices blended with Meyers Lemon and organic avocado oil. Try it as a condiment, a savory starter base, or add to your charcuterie platter, pizza, beans, or grilled veggies.
Due to Popular Demand Pasto is still available!
Chile Verde Cooking Sauce
Chile Cooking Sauce
Our Chile Verde Cooking Sauce is purposely made vegan for all to enjoy. This rich, fragrant cooking sauce comes in mildish heat and is sure to heat you up in the cold months and will spice up any meal from soup, slow roasted vegetables to a winter stew.

We look forward to offering our handmade and small batched Saucy Local Goods in the New Year! Pass The Sauced will continue to offer our trio of salsas year-round: Roasted Fire Mildish, La Clásica Chipotle and Little Red Hot as well as our seasonal cooking sauces.
2022 brought international travel to Italy and Nicaragua as well as creative ideas for new seasonal Sauced products on the horizon!
Despite efforts to create a new vegan cashew based chile con queso sauce, we are still in the testing stages and hope to bring it back for sampling in 2023 at the Outer Sunset Farmer's Market stand and at year round Saucy events and PopUps.
La Sticky Grilling Sauce made was a hit with customers who love the tang of tamarind, texture of tomatillo, and slight sweetness from sugar cane. La Sticky is great as a marinade or grilling sauce!
Pasto Herbed Sauce was a consistent bestseller so we'll bring it back at our first Farmer's Market- stay tuned!

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 delicious spicy 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 hella Saucy Local Goods.
