PACKAGING GUIDE
The Mesa Verde Citrus Blend combines the vibrant zest of citrus with the moderate to hot heat of a Southwest-inspired chile mix. Its appearance is a blend of light orange and beige, with small darker flecks of dark orange, red, and light yellow, visually hinting at the variety of flavors contained within. The aroma is a of lemon, lime, and orange, with an undercurrent of warmth from jalapeños and green chiles that suggests a balance of tangy freshness with a spicy kick.

Inspired by the rich culinary traditions of the Southwest, this blend melds the bright, peppy citrus notes typical of Arizona with the deeper, spicier undertones of local chiles. The inclusion of onion enhances the blend's savory aspect, making it a dynamic and full-bodied seasoning.

Ideal for dishes requiring a punch of heat complemented by a sour citrusy brightness, it’s perfect for seasoning meats such as chicken, fish, and pork, whether grilled or baked. The Mesa Verde Citrus Blend also adds a unique twist to vegetable dishes, grain bowls, and salads, introducing a lively, flavorful accent that can elevate the dish.

For use, liberally sprinkle over your chosen dishes before cooking to infuse them with the distinctive Southwestern flavor, or incorporate it into dressings and marinades for an added layer of complexity. Even a small amount added to finished dishes can make a significant impact, offering a blend of moderate heat and refreshing citrus notes.

Reflecting the warmth and diversity of Southwest flavors, this blend is a celebration of both the region's robust chile tradition and its love for bright, citrusy undertones, making it a versatile addition to a wide range of culinary creations.
