  • Tequi-Lime Sauce

    Chef Ann Kirsenböm's Tequi-Lime Sauce is a gourmet sauce made in West Vancouver, BC, described by Ann as a fusion of East meets West in a bottle. The sweet dark flavors of the Asian grill blend with the south-of-the-border heats of chilies, bright fresh lime finished with a celebratory shot of Tequila! The healthy Eastern cuisines inspired Ann to make the sauce fat-free and without preservatives. It is absolutely delicious and available in many stores.
