Mateo's Cocina Latina

El Yuca Sauces

An authentic Yucatán meal layers flavors, textures and complex chile spice. To give all foods that delicious touch of fire, chef Mateo has created his own collection of hot sauces.

El Yuca Mayan habanero salsas are made from the chef’s homegrown Sonoma County chilies – he farms and harvests his own peppers, then handcrafts and personally bottles his 100 percent all-natural recipes in small batches.

With four distinct sauces, each blend offers its own unique taste profile and heat level. The base is simple, celebrating premium ingredients such as farmer’s market-fresh carrot, onion, Preston Vineyards’ olive oil and white vinegar. But chef Mateo amps the intensity from mild kick to scorching, celebrating his selected chiles’ signature flavors.

The salsas adds extra personality to any dish, from breakfast eggs, to soups, to tacos, to juicy grilled meats, and they aren’t your everyday hot sauces -- their rich flavors enhance rather than overpower even the most delicate foods. Use them as a condiment, as a “secret ingredient” to your favorite recipes, or as a flavorful dip with cool cheeses like mozzarella balls finished with a pinch of sea salt.

Ahumando

Mayan Habanero

The original sauce, based on Mateo’s mother Delmi’s recipe. A rich golden-ochre color, made from peak-of-the-season peppers and crisp, fresh carrots. Flavors remind of bright yellow lemon and plum, with tangy high notes. Serving recommendations include ceviche and other tropical dishes.

Verde

This first-pick-of-the-season habanero comes when Mateo thins the crop of green peppers among the ripening yellow chiles. The delicate fruits are combined with onion, garlic, vinegar and olive oil flash-roasted in a drum, resulting in a bright, beautiful sauce showing kefir lime, blossoms and Gravenstein apple.It adds a lovely spicy-floral accent to eggs, chorizo, cheeses and salads.

Amarillo Rostizado

These late harvest “last pick” chiles celebrate the ripest, most robust habaneros, and therefore, the hottest of the bunch. Hold on for some serious spice, but also magically exotic notes of Mandarin orange and clove. Surprise yourself with how well this sauce adds life and layers to classic favorites like mac –n-cheese and sweet BBQ ribs.
