Tex-Mex Salsa with a Sizzle

May 2020 | Rob, Applications Scientist

Tex-Mex is so diverse and vibrant that it’s nearly impossible to capture the experience into a single flavor. Notice I said ‘nearly’ but because here at McCormick Flavor Solutions, the impossible is what we do.

We dug deep to uncover the essence of Tex-Mex and discovered that it’s not found within any single food. It’s how you cook the food that gives it its sizzle.

To achieve the impossible, we developed a combination of reaction flavors that delivers all the taste of a Tex-Mex salsa cooked on a plancha, the Spanish grilling method where food gets seared on a flat cast-iron griddle. Imagine tomatoes, onions and garlic grilled on that plancha with background notes of roasted cumin, paprika, chorizo and chili. Delicioso!

So, what foods could be made even better with vivacious these Tex-Mex flavors? Sauces, dressings, soups, frozen meals, meat snacks, salty snacks—you name it and our Tex-Mex reaction flavors can take it up a notch.
