Pintxo Sauce = Awesomesauce

Last fall I was sent the most delicious gift in the mail: Pintxo Sauce
“Mediterranean Magic Roasted Red Pepper Sauce”.

pintxo sauceY’all, our jar of Pintxo Sauce (Pronounced “Peen-cho!”) did not last long in the house because I literally put it on everything: as a dipping sauce for chicken, as a topping for baked potato, as a complement to my breakfast burrito and even as a replacement for my salsa with tortilla chips.

As you can see, the smoky sauce added a smile to my taco salad. Hehe! I never knew you could enjoy one sauce with so many meals. The flavor reminded me of this wonderful enchilada sauce my husband and I enjoyed at a restaurant in Colorado many years ago on our honeymoon. I tried recreating it before, but now I don’t have to as Pintxo Sauce brings back into my life that yummy flavor. Needless to say, I’m going to need to order another bottle for myself soon. Creator/Owner Jay Valencia suggests these additional foods to try with your Pintxo Sauce:

  • Marinades / Add a little oil
  • Hummus / Add directly to cooked and blended garbanzos
  • Spreads / Cream Cheese (Bagels and Lox), Sour Cream-CremeFraiche (Chip Dips, Fish), Goat Cheese
  • Sandwiches / Add to mayo or veganaise
  • Soups
  • Tossed Green Salads / thin sauce with lemon, orange, pineapple, mango, blueberry or lilikoi juice. Toss greens and plate.
  • Roasting and Grilling / Beef (Burgers), Tenderloin, Skirt Steak, Pork (LauLau), Chicken under and over skin.
  • Improved spicing : Add curry spices, jerk spices or cajun/creole spiced heat.

While several stores in California carry this magical little sauce, fortunately for me here in Hawaii, it can also be ordered online: Pintxo Sauce.

Let me know if you give it a try!

Livin’ la vida aloha,

  1. I’m wondering if this is similar to a sauce I discovered a couple of years ago here. Ajvar (pronounced, “eye var”) which is an Eastern European condiment made from roasted red bell peppers, roasted eggplant, a little olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar all blended into a little jar of heaven!! I use it much the same way you’ve listed uses here. One of my favorites is mixed with mayo on a salad. But also just a dip. Or on eggs. Not too hard to make yourself. You can try when you visit!

    • It’s a bit more like an enchilada sauce, more of a Spanish influence, but I feel like you would LOVE it, Collin. If you check their link there’s a list of stores in Cali that sell it, too.

  2. I looked it up and you’re post was number 10 on Google, good job. I like red pepper hummus because it tastes like bean dip, haha. Love you, Aunt Iris
