Simply Organic® Adds Enchilada Sauce, Mole Sauce and Salsa Verde to the Popular Southwest Seasoning Mix Family

NORWAY, IOWA (March 29, 2010) - Simply Organic is introducing three new southwest-style seasoning mixes — Enchilada Sauce, Mole Sauce and Salsa Verde. Each of the new mixes is vegan and has the USDA organic certification.

Simply Organic’s Enchilada Sauce Seasoning mix is blended with garlic, paprika, cumin, and roasted red chilies. “Our combination of spices provides optimal flavors without the heat that can drown out a chili’s flavor,” says Kory Kazimour, Simply Organic Senior Brand Manager.

Simply Organic’s Mole Sauce mix gives the home cook access to the complex spice laden flavors found in mole sauce. “Our mole sauce pairs the fruity flavor of dried chilies with Fair Trade Certified™ Dutch cocoa, cumin, cinnamon, and oregano,” adds Kazimour.

Simply Organic’s Salsa Verde Seasoning mix contains organic bell peppers, cilantro, jalapeno, and lime to contribute contrasting elements to our Verde. “When prepared with fresh tomatillos, this salsa is an explosion of effervescent flavors,” quips Kazimour.

The realities of today’s economic downturn have raised awareness levels for people that want to save money. According to a recent study by the Organic Trade Association, 67% of families have cut back spending for dining out and 63% have increased their ingredient purchases for home-cooked meals. “Even when the new mixes are made with organic ingredients, the average cost per serving is less than 40 cents,” adds Kazimour.

Kazimour notes the new Simply Organic seasoning mixes are free of hydrolyzed vegetable protein, modified food starch, hydrogenated oils, and genetically engineered ingredients. In addition to their USDA organic certification, each mix is Kosher certified and vegan, too. With a 24-month shelf life, consumers can conveniently store the seasoning mixes in the cupboard for future use.

Inexpensively priced at $1.39, each mix can be used in a variety of ways. Recipe suggestions are provided on each package, as well as on the Simply Organic website. The new flavors complement the other Simply Organic Southwest seasoning mixes, including Southwest Taco, Fajita, Fish Taco, and Spicy Taco mix.

The new Simply Organic Southwest seasoning mixes can be found in natural and organic retailers or consumers can purchase them online at www.simplyorganic.com.
