We strive to use only the freshest ingredients for each of our recipes. We buy only fresh beef and chicken that are guaranteed to contain no antibiotics or added growth hormones and that have been raised on a strictly vegetarian diet. We use only produce that is locally/regionally produced when possible. Our flour tortillas are made in house by hand fresh daily. Our corn tortillas are sourced from a local provider, they always come fresh, never frozen. So even though we don’t make them here they are as fresh as if we did produce them ourselves. The smokeyness you taste in the salsa is the smoke from the hickory wood we burn as we grill the tomatoes , onions, and peppers used to make our salsa. We serve it slightly warm to bring out all of those flavors.
