The name comes from a traditional type of Sauce from Mexico.
The actual place of origin is unknown as it is disputed between a couple of towns that guarantee they were the creators.
The traditional version is generally very spicy as it is usually made with "chile de arbol" which is one of the hottest dried chiles in Mexico.
At El Rudo, we decided to create our own version.
Like the traditional, our Macha is oil based but we added different dried non-spicy chiles to provide a unique smokiness and the right level of spice.
We mixed different ingredients, including seeds and fruits to provide a tangy, bittersweet flavour.
Our Salsa Macha can be enjoyed in either one of our two versions, Original and Hot. Both hold our fantastic signature flavour, but our hot version will definitely make you sweat!
It can be used to marinade steaks, chicken or fish, as well as an everyday "enhancer" of food.
