Have you tried our Creole inspired cooking sauce yet? It is a workhorse in the kitchen!

Use it to start your classics such as Gumbo, Jambalaya, or etouffee without all of the chopping, cabinet full of spices, or sodium & sugar laden spice blends.

But, it also is fantastic as a rub for chicken or fish before a simple pan saute or oven bake, use it in your Instant Pot or slow cooker for a beef roast that will be so incredibly delicious, add to water before cooking rice or rice and beans, add some Haitian-inspired flair to a pan saute of fish, sliced onions and bell peppers, or make a Creole inspired chili with chicken sausage and blackeyed peas for a change of pace!

So many ways this healthy cooking sauce & flavor base can bring life to your table and excitement to healthy every day dishes! Coming in at less than 35 calories per serving, no fat, low sodium, zero added sugar, even a bit of fiber and a vitamin boost!

Boost the flavor and nutrition of anything you make with Mesa de Vida!

But, most of us don't have that time, or the skill, so I've created Mesa de Vida's Smoky Latin inspired healthy cooking sauce to allow you to experience la delicioso sabor to enjoy at your table of life, even on your busiest weeknight!
