Diana Loomis founded Hot Mama’s Salsa, Inc. in 2003 after settling in Bozeman, Montana. Having grown up outside of Chicago, Diana remembers cooking alongside her Madre and Abuelita, learning how to prepare their family’s multi-generational recipes. Inspired by her Grandmother’s salsa recipes, Diana’s love of cooking and passion for her family’s authentic Mexican cuisine became a recipe for success.
Hot Mama’s produces small batches of fresh salsa, distributing it to local stores, commercial grocers and restaurants in Montana and beyond. During the summer they offer breakfast burritos, take n’ bake enchiladas (veggie or carnivore), homemade ancho chipotle dips, fresh pico de’ gallo and guacamole. “Oh, and the pina colada mix is the best you’ll ever taste. Our foods are a true Mexican delight!” laughs Diana.
“People can tell when their food is made with love,” Diana believes. Hot Mama’s hand-selects their ingredients, buys from local businesses, and takes special care when making their fresh salsas and seasonal entrees. You’ll also see one of Hot Mama’s team personally delivering salsa to grocery stores. “Paying attention to the little details is a key ingredient to my food and my business.”
Diana is a big-hearted supporter of the Bozeman community, because its culture offers so many opportunities for small businesses, individuals, and families. “It’s very important to take good care of each other”, she states. Hot Mama’s Salsa is one way she can give back. Diana’s positive energy and passion for life nurtures our hearts and tantalizes our taste buds like only the best Mama can.
