Eat This! Not That!

Chowhound testimony

Healthy and flavorful, the Mesa De Vida line of sauces are inspired by culinary hotspots around the world—and they’re Whole30-approved. The company has rolled out a Caribbean Sauce inspired by classic jerk flavors (but low in sodium); a Creole Sauce for shortcut gumbo and jambalaya; a North African Sauce that includes plums for natural sweetness; a Mediterranean Sauce with capers, olives, and basil; and a Smoky Latin Sauce that started it all. They can all be used in the slow cooker on everything from vegetables to proteins, and all are made with fresh ingredients without any added sugars, thickeners, or other additives.

…the amount of flavor alone packed into each 9-ounce jar is worth it. …felt like I was an Iron Chef six minutes later when it was all ready for eating.

I was thrilled when Mesa de Vida cooking sauces effortlessly added a world of flavor to my Whole30 dinners, but then I discovered you can dip vegetables into them too. Straight from the jar. Move over, salsa, because my carrot sticks and snap peas just found a new best friend.

I eat 90% of my meals at home, live for cooking, and mostly only like to cook from my own recipes. However, Mesa de Vida has become a welcome “helper” and “secret weapon” in my kitchen, because I can get all those levels of flavors that I would otherwise spend up to hours building, from a jar! Plus it doesn’t have any ingredients that I have to wince at and try to overlook! Super clean, full of flavor, and super multi-functional in the kitchen!

I tried your Smoky Latin cooking sauce and Oh My Gosh it was so good! I sautéed chicken by just pouring the sauce over as it cooked, then just served it over white rice. It was so good! Amazing stuff!

One of the best sauces I’ve ever tried. I could not be happier with the outcome of my dishes.


Duvall, WA


The flavor is fantastic. The fact that they are gluten free, dairy free…makes me feel really good about what I cook for my family. I love them all!


Edmonds, WA


As a nurse who works long shifts, I love that Mesa de Vida sauces provide me with quick, easy and most of all, nutritious meals! The sauces are made from REAL food and spices, are made with love, and made without preservatives, too much salt or suspect ingredients. My favorite is the North African Inspired Harissa sauce, and I know that using it in meals will deliver amazing, home cooked flavor without all the work or unwanted ingredients.

Oh My Gosh, the Smoky Latin sauce smells AMAZING! This sauce is 5 stars, my entire family loves it! Even my 11 year old son, who is very picky, loved it so I know it’s good! He said ‘this sauce is delicious. I’d eat that any time!’ Thank you so much!
