Founded by Ben Jackson, Capsicana was born out of a love of travel and cooking. Ben has eaten in many true Mexican cantinas and the inspiration behind Capsicana began in the late 90’s when he was travelling with his Dad in Texas. They would drive around and visit friends in cities such as Austin and San Antonio. Both have large Mexican communities and it was here that Ben first laid eyes on proper Mexican food, which soon became his default cuisine of choice – whether going out for dinner or just grabbing something by the side of the road.
Ben, or Chilli Ben as he is known, comments “I founded Capsicana because I absolutely love chillies and Latin American food. Everything about it grabs me – most particularly all the delicious varieties of chillies. Chillies are about so much more than just heat. “We work really hard at Capsicana to bring you the best tasting sauces possible made with great ingredients.”
Consumers only need to grab a pan and in just minutes can whip up a sizzling fajitas with a twist to share with compadres, using the brand’s smokin’ Brazilian Chilli and Coconut Sauce. Consumers would for sure taste the adventure!
