How about squeeze bottles?
The squeeze bottles are best with our Fresh Red Sauce, which is a puree. Our Pure Green and Red & Green Blend sauces are delightfully chunky, rendering a squeeze bottle useless. You can purchase a squeeze bottle for $1 here: Fresh Red Squeeze Bottle


It’s so cold where I live that my chile sauce arrived frozen solid! Will it still taste good? Is it safe to consume?
Our sauces freeze well, so the flavor should be fine. If any of the jars are cracked or broken, please contact us. Also, once they have thawed and you begin using them, if the jars are not properly sealed when you open them (indicated by the lack of the little pop sound you would normally hear when opening a properly sealed jar), then that would indicate that freezing has broken the seal that is important for food safety. If that is the case, please don’t consume, but do contact us.


Can you tell me more about the nutritious facts?
Yes! Take a look at the nutrition panels for all of our sauces by clicking here. Each product has its label as a photo on its product page, so you can click it and zoom in to inspect details. 


Do I need to refrigerate the chile? How long will it last? 
Before opening, jars remain fresh for 18 months from manufacturing, and you can find an exact expiration date on the bottom of each jar. Do keep it in the fridge once you have opened it! 

Because our jarred chile is made without any preservatives, they stay good in the refrigerator, once opened, just 7-10 days. We are committed to keeping our sauces pure and delicious, but that does mean they should be consumed or frozen in that 7-10 day period after opening to maintain the integrity of the sauce. (Filling up an ice tray with the remainder of your jar is a handy way to have little amounts to defrost for tacos, soups, etc!)
