Hector Saldivar knows that Food is Love. His mother, known affectionately as Tia Lupita ("Aunt Lupita" in Spanish), filled the family kitchen with the love, laughs and tasty eats that brought everyone together. In Mexico, family recipes are valuable heirlooms carefully handed down from generation to generation. Tia perfected her own family hot sauce recipe to create a delightful balance of heat and flavor, coveted by anyone lucky enough to get a taste. After moving to San Francisco, Hector decided to start mass-producing the delicious, spicyness.The brand is named Tia Lupita to honor his mom and the legacy of the family recipe.
