I got started in hot sauce by necessity. I've always loved spicy foods and becoming a homeowner I decided to grow hot peppers since they weren't readily available at the store. After an impulse purchase of some red savina and bhut jolokia seedlings at a nursery, come September I suddenly had several pounds of super hot peppers to work with.
I had my daughter as a single parent in 2010 and in the space of 18 months totally destroyed my business in artist management, due to the fact that I totally underestimated child care and utter sheer exhaustion I'd suffer from.
We had both grown up in Texas so our love of tacos and tex-mex food was a real way of life. We had both previously been in the restaurant business for many years and had always liked the unique hot sauces that mom and pop taco shops made way better than generic bottled sauces.
