Tacolicious has partnered with Williams-Sonoma to release our three signature salsas (Habanero, Tomatillo-Avocado, and Chipotle) as well as three of our braising liquids (Shot-and-a-Beer, Guajillo Chile, and Mole Rojo). Every step of the way, the locally based company brought us into their gorgeous test kitchen to taste and give feedback, all the way down to the type of lager used for the braise. Not that we expected less, but we were duly impressed. The products turned out great.
The trio of salsas are less for chip-dipping than for using like a condiment, drizzled onto of tacos (duh), grilled meats, scrambled eggs, and much more. And the braising sauces are the key to those unctuous, fork-tender meats that make magic when wrapped with a couple warm corn tortillas and topped with a little crunchy onion and sprightly cilantro. That and a squeeze of million dollar lime (watch our own Mike Barrow talk lime DEFCON on the Wall Street Journal).
Bonus: All of Tacolicious’s proceeds from the sale of these Williams-Sonoma products will go straight to the Tacolicious School Project. To read up on some Mexican party tips and more courtesy of T-lish, read the Williams-Sonoma blog.
Stop by the Williams-Sonoma Union Square store (340 Post St.), Thursday May 8 at 6 pm for tastes of the new line of products. Customers will receive 10 percent off everything in the store. We’ll be there to celebrate with you!
