At Tio Pelon’s Salsita, we believe that hot sauce should have a delicious, unique flavor with a nice little kick that will invite you in for more! Our goal is to bring you tasty, high quality, small batch ‘Salsitas’ that will transform the way you eat, cook and live.
Tio Pelon’s Salsita is the brainchild of Oscar Perez. Born in northern Mexico and raised in South Texas, Oscar (aka Tio Pelon) has embraced San Antonio as his home for over 10 years, taking in the culture, Los Spurs and everything that comes with this historic and vibrant city. After receiving a degree in architecture from UTSA, Tio Pelon took his tremendous passion for food and design to the drawing board. His hometown pride and culinary inclinations guided Tio Pelon to share a family recipe that everybody should get to know–and Tio Pelon’s Salsita was created!
Tio Pelon was quickly joined by Ashley and Jerrod, and together they formed the original salsa team; everything from salsa making to logo design has been done by this small group. Ashley has a BFA from UT Austin and is the team artist, editor, critic, seasoned cook and Girl Friday for everything else. Jerrod has a Business Management degree from UTSA and is the team marketing ideas guru, sales master, future planner, salsa cooker and an altogether a great guy. Together with Oscar they form Tio Pelon’s Salsita.
