The Stagecoach Salsa Company began as a hobby back in the 1990’s making salsa for friends and family. After an overwhelming and enthusiastic amount of encouragement we began producing salsa as San Antonio’s newest salsa company in late 2006 — using the freshest produce, and a commitment to the belief that spicy and flavorful salsa should be enjoyed and not just endured. We now produce nine classic South Texas salsas – four red’s in Mild, Medium, Heat, and Ignite heat levels, and two authentic true green salsas (salsa verde) - Green Extreme (very hot), and Bubba's Green Fire Sauce (very, very hot). In June of 2011, we introduced our newest spicy salsa, "Bubba's Chipotle Black Bean & Corn", now a very popular San Antonio specialty AND one of this year's Fiery Food Challenge winners in two categories.
During the Summer of 2008, we introduced our first fruit salsa – “Miss Michele's Peach Salsa", and our really spicy Chipotle Chile Pepper salsa – “Smoke & Fire". Both are now local hits, AND Fiery Food Challenge National Award Winners.
The Spring and Summer of 2009 brought in even more Stagecoach Salsa Company delights. Customers asked us, "Why don't you have a BBQ Sauce?" Soooooo....We've introduced "Bubba's Spicy Stage Stop BBQ Sauce". And since you shouldn't have just a spicy BBQ Sauce, we complimented Bubba's with "Miss Cynthia's Not So Spicy Stage Stop BBQ Sauce". It's still spicy, just "not so spicy". A few months later we brought out our now, really popular, and also a Fiery Food Challenge Winner, Rowdy Razzelberry Orange Sauce - Bubba's version of Raspberry Chipotle Sauce - raspberries, oranges, Chipotle peppers and Texas pecans, all mixed together - Yum! (Especially on top of cream cheese)
The other half of the hobby is Mesquite Smoked Jerky. We currently offer "Mesquite Smoked" turkey and beef jerky made the old fashioned way in a real mesquite wood smokehouse in both Regular, and Hot & Spicy recipes.
