NAKED infusions salsa is gluten-free and contains no genetically modified ingredients. It is 100% organic with no sugar, no vinegar and no onions. Founder Selene Kepila omits these ingredients from her salsa recipe to achieve a fresher flavor, but this also makes NAKED infusions salsa healthier than other salsas, and safe for customers with food sensitivities.
The fresh, clean flavor of NAKED infusions organic gourmet salsa is inspired by Kepila’s upbringing on a Kansas farm: “I grew up knowing how much better food tastes when it’s really fresh. I never thought about how healthy it was – I only knew how good it tasted. Once I started caring about health, I knew I didn’t have to compromise on taste.” She spent two years recreating the flavorful salsa of her youth, and then created several combinations inspired by her world travels.
With NAKED infusions, Kepila has proven that it’s possible to get fresh tasting salsa from a jar. She looks forward to bringing convenient, organic gourmet salsa to more customers across the US. “People deserve fresh-tasting salsa without having to make it themselves, or buy it fresh and then worry about it spoiling before they finish it.”
She doesn’t shy away from heat. Although some customers prefer the Mild and Medium varieties, NAKED infusions Extra Hot Signature Ripe Tomato has been described as, “being slapped with the Scoville scale.” Fans of truly hot salsa have been pleased, attesting that “the heat really holds up.” The infused flavors are made with Medium Signature Ripe Tomato to keep the heat from completely overpowering the other ingredients.
The smoothness of NAKED infusions gourmet salsa makes it perfect to use in recipes for appetizers, main courses and even cocktails. The company’s recipe book is available on request. Notable recipes include dips, soups, several variations on the Bloody Mary, and Italian/Tex-Mex fusion dishes like lasagna and eggplant made with NAKED infusions salsa instead of marinara. Several food bloggers have developed their own recipes using NAKED infusions gourmet salsa.
NAKED infusions salsa is available in 16-ounce jars, and 4-ounce mini-jars. NAKED infusions organic corn chips are also now available in select stores. All NAKED infusions products are available online with free shipping.
