I love trying Colorado products and I recently was sent a couple different flavors of Boulder-based Winking Girl Sauces
to try. They were simple and easy to prepare, which is super important as I am constantly driving in circles for my kids and sometimes it feels like dinner is an after-thought. They were also tasty! From green and red enchilada sauces to fajita and taco sauces, the gluten-free, non-GMO, and vegan mixes are easy to use and create restaurant quality recipes that are great for quick, easy, quality meals at home. They are available at Rocky Mountain Region Whole Foods Markets as an exclusive product.
