Pura Macha – Salsa Macha
$18.00 – $54.00
Created by Masienda team members Danielle and Jorge, Pura Macha is a playful nod to the traditional salsas machas of Mexico.
Literally translated as “brave salsa” (a reference to the spice level of some, not all, recipes) salsa macha is an oil-based chile condiment, traditionally prepared with some combination of chiles, nuts/seeds, spices and dried fruits.
From the traditional salsas machas across Mexico, to the chili oils of China and Southeast Asia, to “XO” sauce in Hong Kong and rāyu in Japan, oil-based condiments can be traced to cultures from all over the world. We’re stoked to present our own take on the staple, from two of our very own at Masienda–handmade in Los Angeles, of course.
We spoon Pura Macha onto masa dishes like tacos, quesadillas and tamales, as well as pizza, salad, roasted vegetables, noodles, beans, rice, pasta, yogurt, bread and butter, to name just a few.
Welcome to the everything condiment.
GUAJILLO + CRANBERRY + HAZELNUT balances a mellow warmth with a refreshing dose of sweet and savory elements. This is the gateway recipe of the Pura Macha lineup, the salsa that primes you for deeper macha explorations to come. Spoon over roasted vegetables, pizza, salads, quesadillas, tamales…this goes great on it all.
Ingredients: Grapeseed Oil, Chile Guajillo, Chile Pasilla, Roasted Hazelnut, Dried Cranberry, Black Garlic, Apple Cider Vinegar, Chile de Arbol, Sea Salt. Contains: hazelnuts.
CHIPOTLE + COFFEE + PEANUT is affectionately known as The Red Eye around Masienda HQ. A fiery blend of chipotle, morita and pasilla chiles have a cup of coffee with some peanuts. By far the spiciest of the three, we especially spoon this on all meats (and, we mean ALL), roasted yams, carrots, and portobello mushrooms.
Ingredients: Grapeseed Oil, Chile Chipotle, Chile Morita, Chile Pasilla, Roasted Peanut, Ground Coffee, Pimenton, Brown Sugar, Sea Salt. Contains: peanuts.
ARBOL + NORI + SESAME is an homage to the umami-rich flavors of furikake. The chile de arbol says “hello, I’m here!” and the Sichuan peppercorn says “hello, I’m staying!” while the nori and sesame play together in the background. We spoon this one on all seafood (think roasted shrimp, pescado a la talla…) roasted oyster mushrooms, eggs, rice, noodles, vegetable crudite and salads.
Ingredients: Grapeseed Oil, Chile de Arbol, Chile Guajillo, Black Garlic, Nori, Sesame, Cumin, Sea Salt, Sichuan Peppercorn.
Pura Macha Trio: Includes one jar of each unique flavor.
Pura Macha is shelf-stable and doesn’t require refrigeration. Stir thoroughly before spooning.
