Actress and Texas native Eva Longoria has teamed up with FoodStory Brands’ Fresh Cravings to create Eva’s Kitchen Cantina Style Salsa.
Eva’s Kitchen Cantina Style Salsa launched in late March and is available exclusively in the produce department of H-E-B stores.
The salsa is the latest partnership between Longoria and Arizona-based FoodStory Brands to bring her recipes to life. Longoria is an actress, producer, philanthropist and New York Times best-selling cookbook author.
Eva’s Kitchen Cantina Style Salsa features chipotle, jalapeno, cayenne and Anaheim peppers, fresh vegetables and vine-ripened tomatoes.
Longoria, who was born in Corpus Christi, grew up with homemade salsa as a staple in her kitchen.
“Being a Texas native and growing up in a Latino family filled with passionate cooks, the smell of cilantro, onions, peppers and charred tomatoes was always present. Where did we buy all of these fresh, high-quality vegetables? H-E-B! I could not be more thrilled to launch Eva’s Kitchen Cantina Style Salsa with this wonderful grocery store,” Longoria said. “I inherited my family’s love of fresh-tasting salsa, and in my house, my husband and I eat it on everything—eggs, baked chicken, salads, tacos and even pizza. Like most people, I don’t always have time to make salsa from scratch. Adapting one of my family’s recipes with the Fresh Cravings team means that you get an authentic salsa that’s as close to homemade as possible.”
“We are exceptionally proud of our growing relationship with Eva Longoria. Her passion for making authentic and delicious food vibes deeply with our mission to bring the best food stories to life,” said Jay Whitney, president of FoodStory Brands, the company behind Fresh Cravings.
Longoria and FoodStory Brands first paired up this past holiday season under their Sweet Offerings confectionary label with Longoria’s Tres Leches Cake, which also was inspired from a family recipe. San Antonio, Texas-based H-E-B, the official launch partner for Eva’s Kitchen Cantina Style Salsa, also recently launched Fresh Cravings Organic Restaurant Style Salsa in mild and medium heats.
