Casa de Comer Salsa is a product that has become a cornerstone to our young and growing family. It was born from the love of good food shared among family and friends together with the richness of tradition.
I'm Sean Comer, and my wife Silvia changed my life in more ways than I could have expected. When we began our life's journey together, I was introduced to the wonderful home cooking of Silvia's Mama Lidia. It was not only amazing authentic Mexican food made fresh every day, but it brought friends and family together during its daily preparation and for enjoying its bounty at each meal.
Because I, too, enjoyed cooking, I decided to join together with Mama Lidia and learn her special style of cooking. I took every opportunity possible to join her in the kitchen and learn her ways and recipes. El Comal was used daily and was the method used for heating tortillas and roasting salsa. I, on the other hand, grew up grilling on an open flame, the Central Coast flame style of cooking.
When Mama Lidia died, both Sylvia and I mourned her loss and yearned to recapture and share that richness of family, friends and food. Those days of family and friends became our inspiration to enhance her delicious salsa with the flavor of Central Coast flame cooking and make it available to everyone.
Our unique salsa has a rich, smooth, smoky flavor while keeping the authentic flavors of Mexico. We began using our recipe on our food truck for our tri-tip sandwiches. We knew we had something amazing when we saw people’s reaction to our salsa. They were pleased and intrigued to know more about the flavor, which seems to evoke emotions from something so familiar. More and more people were asking to buy the salsa. After realizing how much people loved it, we began selling the salsa at school fundraisers and other community gatherings to help support our growing family.
Our dream has expanded to bring Smokin’ Good Salsa from our home to yours in hopes that you, too, can experience the richness of friends and family while enjoying traditional meals using the enhanced flavors of our Casa de Comer Salsa. I am especially proud to have my kids grow up immersed in it all.
¡Comer con mucho gusto!
