About

Butch and Burma

Red Hot Foods was established in 1995 in Oxnard, California by Butch Baselice. After 25 years in the restaurant business, Butch was ready for a change. He put together an entire line of his award winning salsas and hot sauces for sale directly to the general public.

Butch and Burma moved Red Hot Foods to Santa Paula, CA in 2005 and opened their Boutique California Cannery, licensed by the State of California and FDA approved. The cannery was moved to its present location in Santa Paula late in 2009.

Red Hot Foods currently has over 100 products of our own and continues growing. We have a full line of Salsa, Hot Sauces, BBQ Sauces, Flavored Olive Oils, Dressings, Soup and Chowder Mixes, Jams, Jellies, Custom Seasoning Blends, Mustards, Ketchups, Relishes and other Condiments.
