“Perez Pepper Sauce” is the new business co-founded by Chris Perez. He has been working with his business partner to bring “Tongues Ablaze LLC” to life since August. The small-batch hot sauce will be available online for worldwide shipping and at Traders Village in San Antonio on Nov. 16.

Selena fans who are familiar with the 1997 movie remember the scene in which Perez, played by Jon Seda, pulls out a bottle of hot sauce from a holster strapped to his belt. In reality Chris Perez does loves hot sauce. The idea for the company came about when his business partner noticed the musician was carrying chili peppers in his tote.

“I want to hopefully shake things up a bit by offering sauces and products that are ethnic or culturally inspired from various regions such as Mexican and Spanish sauces among others.” said Perez.
