“Taste of Frontera” Gift Box $90

These are Frontera flavors we all crave, both traditional and unique, from savory to sweet. Our collection takes you through classic chips, salsa and red chile nuts, to unique Xoco-style guacamole (complete with ripe Michoacan avocados!).  There’s Frontera’s ancho chile spice rub for fish, chicken or steak, plus a luxurious nutty-spicy salsa macha to spoon over sautéed shrimp or grilled vegetables.  Our homemade cajeta (goats milk caramel) makes ice cream taste like food of the gods.  Start your day with a cup of our bean-to-cup Oaxacan hot chocolate (if you’ve  never tasted fresh-ground chocolate, this will be a revelation) and end it with festive chocolate truffles infused with Oaxacan mezcal. Recipes included! Here’s exactly what we have curated for you:


  • Our red chile-lime nut mix (8 ounces of roasted peanuts, pumpkin seeds and fava beans)
  • Authentic taqueria-style tortilla chips
  • Our award-winning chipotle salsa (16 ounces)
  • Spicy mix to make Xoco-style guacamole
  • 2 perfectly ripe Michoacan avocados
  • Frontera’s ancho chile spice rub (2 ounces)
  • Homemade salsa macha (smoky-spicy Oaxacan pasilla chiles, garlic, sesame, pumpkin seeds, olive oil, vinegar)
  • Bean-to-cup hot chocolate mix (10 ounces of Mexican cacao beans and organic sugar ground fresh in-house)
  • Homemade cajeta (6 ounces of goats milk caramel)
  • 6 homemade, mezcal-infused chocolate truffles


“Perfect Breakfast” Gift Set $38

Buttery rolls topped with sweet cinnamon streusel—these are the breakfast conchas everyone loves in Mexico.  Warmed, they are even better smeared with fig-raspberry jam (the fruit comes from nearby Seedling Farm).  To complete the memory, make a cup of our bean-to-cup hot chocolate—yes, we import cacao beans from Mexico and grind them in-house for the freshest, most aromatic beverage.
