oh my god, seriously!?!?

That's awesome! I almost didn't enter the Red Label - it's been skunked in so many awards over the last year. The best part is that Red Label was my baby - when I was a hobbyist I worked on the Red for years. I love that sauce. This is the best ending to the year I ever could have imagined.  :woohoo: 
 
Thanks THP and congrats to all of the winning sauces! 
:cheers:

Happy New Year :-)
 
Nice showing! Congrats!  And thank you for the kind words! 
 
Congrats to Michael Lampros of Gunther's Gourmet for a ridiculous haul!  Love his products - it's great to see them get so much love.  :cheers:

Thanks to THP awards. Wow! We are proud of our salsa for getting 1st place in the medium class. We can't wait to enter our new lime flavored salsa that is coming out this spring. Anyone in this business knows that you don't do it for the money, it's all about the peppers and taste. :P :dance:
 
 
Considering the competition that's a heck of a nice pull - excited to try your salsa sometime. :cheers:
