Pica Rica is Jona's original hot sauce. The first incarnation utilized his homemade banana vinegar and "Panama Peppers", a close habanero relative. The demand grew quickly, and it became the underground hot sauce of choice for a growing network of folks who came to volunteer on the farm in Costa Rica. Once back in the States, Jona modified the recipe to utilize the more locally appropriate apple cider vinegar. All of our sauces are made on-site in our farm kitchen, utilizing our own organically-grown peppers.
We also offer wholesale pricing for purchase of a case or more. See option below, and email us with specifics of how you'd like your case made up: email@example.com

The original sauce. Created for spice lovers, this is a habanero-based sauce. Delicious on just about everything! Warning: once you're hooked, it's hard to enjoy food without it.
Our jalapeno-based Pica Verde has a medium spice level for those who enjoy a little kick and flavor with their food. Delicious on eggs, stir fry, tacos... okay, let's be honest, it's delicious on everything!
To make this delicious medium spice-level sauce, we smoke our jalapeno peppers on applewood. It is incredible on quesadillas, avocados, and so much more!
