Chicaoji Sauce tastes good on just about everything! It features a unique blend of goji berries and cacao warmed just a bit with chipotle chilies. The complex flavor and mild spiciness go with a great diversity of foods as a condiment and as an ingredient in recipes. Chicaoji deliciously weaves together all the flavors: sweet, sour, salt, bitter, savory and spicy.

I believe that Food is Medicine. Our food choices influence our well-being. I selected all of Chicaoji’s ingredients because they are recognized as having health benefits in addition to their nutrition and most excellent flavor. I make Chicaoji for your nourishment and enjoyment. My choice of all organically produced ingredients is a powerful vote for sustainable and organic farming. Our choices make a difference.
What’s up with the name?
CHIpotle + caCAO + goJI = CHICAOJI. See how that works? Pronounce it ““chick-OW-gee”. It’s a new word for a new taste sensation.
Chicaoji Sauce is truly a “Taste of Lopez Island, Washington”. It was created during the summer of 2007 by the people who taste tested my variations of a sauce featuring the amazing combination of goji berries and cacao at the Vortex Juice Bar & Café.
