Salsa's origins can be traced all the way back to the Aztecs in 3000 BC, although some say that conquistadors named it around 1520. We're bringing the sauce into the 21st century with Smoke-Blended Salsa. Grilling the tomatoes and veggies over aromatic wood smoke gives this bright dish a depth of rich flavor, infusing this historical condiment with wood-fired flare Traeger style.
