Cinco de Mayo is a yearly celebration held on May 5 to celebrate Mexico’s victory over the Second French Empire in 1862. The festivities have evolved over the years to celebrate Mexican-American/Mexican-Canadian culture.

Quesada will be introducing its new Signature Burrito Sauce in May. This sauce is made with sour cream, pickled jalapeno and smoked paprika to provide some smoky heat.

If you have a vegan in the group, Quesada offers a good selection of plant-based alternatives including roasted veggies, housemade refried beans, Saucy Chipotle Tofu and Vegan Paprika Mayo.

Quesada prepares three kinds of salsas fresh, in-house on a daily basis: Chipotle Tomato (mild), Salsa Verde (medium), and Salsa Roja (hot!!!).

Quesada’s Chipotle Tomato Salsa Recipe

This recipe has a mild heat level, but can be made spicier by adding more chipotle peppers. (Makes 2-3 cups)

5 medium tomatoes

1½ Tbsp canned chipotles in adobo sauce*

2 Tbsp diced cooking onion

1 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Place tomatoes on a parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet and score an “x” into the tops of the tomatoes.

Place in oven and roast for approximately 30 minutes, or until the tops are charred and tomatoes are soft. Remove from oven and cool.

Place tomatoes and their juices into a blender. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until you have reached your desired consistency. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.

*Please note: Quesada does not use canned chipotle peppers. Quesada prepares its own Chipotle Paste from whole, dried Chipotle Morita Chiles at each location. However, for this at-home recipe, Quesada recommends using canned chipotle peppers for convenience!
