Desert Pepper Trading Company was born and raised on the border of Texas, Mexico, and New Mexico. This amazing crux of bright flavors, sunlight, and the desert Southwest inspires us in every way.

Our flavors come from a sun swept fusion of the Southwest, the open air markets of Mexico, and our own kitchens. We look backwards into the culinary traditions of the border regions and forward to global new flavors and ideas. This is a multi-generational family run business… that’s right, real people running a real company. Over 25 years now (where did that time go?) and more than a few margaritas later… we are still at it. Desert Pepper continues to thrill, delight and scare the hell out of us!

Sincere, authentic, and original… that's what we are all about.




While we agree our salsas are special, we don’t think they should be reserved only for special occasions. Our newest line of Cantina salsas are meant to reclaim their rightful place on the table at every meal. They’ll add a pefect kick to top any dish or use them as you cook to provide an extra depth of flavor.

Cantina Mild Red

Cantina Mild Red Salsa isn’t a condiment… it’s a necessity! It has just enough heat to excite the senses & all of the authentic flavor you crave. Mild & zesty, this is what tortilla chips were made for.

To reclaim its rightful place on the table as a compliment to every meal, Cantina hits the right balance of savory richness and
luscious heat.
