Pop & pour

Have a recipe that starts with chopped aromatic vegetables, and a cabinet full of spices? Swap in Mesa de Vida instead!

Swap for dried out spices.

Add a spoon or two to anything that you’re cooking as a seasoning sauce instead of dried spice blends to add fresh, vibrant, global gourmet flavor! Bring life to rice, grains, leftover rotisserie chicken, or bone broth.
