Velvet Soda

Healthy meets fun in these perfectly sweetened, tropical sodas. Free of preservatives and artificial flavors, all you’re left with is the pure taste of fruits like lychee, polemo (grapefruit), and maracuya (passion fruit).

Ki Gourmet Finishing Sause

This wide range of finishing sauces has so much potential with flavors of fruit and various peppers to add zest to meats, fish, and even dessert toppings.

Handmade Mexican Housewares

Choose from a variety of artisan, handmade cups, tablewares, and more.

Manhattan Paletas

Just in time for warmer Texas temperatures, these frozen fruit pops are all-natural and made with real fruit. The array of flavors come in classics like Mango, Watermelon, and Pineapple or the exotic like Lychee, Prickly Pear, and Passion Fruit.

Mexico Wines

Baja California, a.k.a. Mexico’s wine region, is one of the most intriguing wine regions in the world because few vines are indigenous to Mexico. Instead, most wine varieties came from explorers in the 16th century. The stars of Mexican wine country are the valleys, among them the Valle de Guadalupe, where world-class wineries are producing wines made of international varieties of French, Spanish, and Italian descent.

Ready to Cook Pork Mole

Our tender, flavorful, all-natural pork butt is sauced and ready to braise in your oven. Choose from Pueblan Mole Poblano, Ancho Fruit Mole (Manchamanteles), Oaxacan Red Chile Mole, and Yucatecan Cochinita Pibil in Achiote Sauce.

Made fresh in-store daily. Choose from ready-to-cook, Mexican-style meatballs and picadillos including Albondigas de Jalisco (beef and pork with zuchinni), Albondigas para Sopa (beef, pork, and rice meatballs), Albondigas de Puebla (beef and pork with onion, mint, and cumin), Picadillo Oaxaqueno (sweet spiced pork filling for rellenos, empanadas, or soft tacos), Picadillo Blanco (beef filling for flautas or garnachas), and Picadillo Norteno (beef filling with olives and raisins for stuffing chiles or tacos). Look for recipes in our Market.

Mexican-Style Sausages and Chorizo
