Our Sauces

Cocinita El Rey live culture hot sauces are made using fresh Willamette Valley chiles and sea salt only. The rich and singular flavors are the result of a long, slow spontaneous fermentation- not filtered and never pasteurized, our hot sauces are a raw probiotic food.

About Cocinita El Rey

Cocinita El Rey grew out of one person’s lust for ripe chiles in the cold winter months. I’d been making sauerkraut that served as a fresh vegetable for weeknight dinners for years―raw, crunchy and delicious. Why not try chiles? Using only salt, chiles, and an abundance of patience, Cocinita El Rey was born. Start me up.

Our sauces are the result of spontaneous fermentation with no added starter cultures. By creating an environment that nurtures friendly bacteria (coarsely chopped chiles, just enough salt), we can step aside and let nature take over.
