The spice is right from Spring Valley business


Mon, Feb 23rd, 2015
Posted in Spring Valley Features



When Daryl Boettcher first made salsa on a whim for gift baskets to benefit the United Way Campaign, he had no way of knowing what awaited him. After the gift baskets, which also carried Boettcher’s dry rub, were auctioned off, he was getting peppered with requests by people wanting more.

This led him to begin researching salsa recipes to create his own saying none of them are knockoff’s, each one is his own creation. His first salsa, Sweet Heat Cranberry is by far the best-selling.

After leaving his job at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Boettcher started taking his salsa to the Farmer’s Market in Rochester and sold out quickly. He had the same experience at Thursday’s on First in Rochester. Somewhere along the way he was referred to as “The Salsa Guy” and the name stuck.

Boettcher now sells 14 kinds of “The Salsa Guy” salsas in his store at 128 N. Broadway in Spring Valley ranging from mild to sweet to the hottest salsa named “To Hell and Back” and everything in between.

Mango Peach Raspberry was created for grilling and marinating and Boettcher says it is “fabulous on grilled salmon and is also fantastic dumped over a pork roast or loin and thrown in your crock pot to cook all day”, which sounds delicious.

Also available in the store are Boettcher’s sauces, including pizza sauce and pasta sauce, dry rubs, fire-roasted red pepper soup, and other interesting items.

“The Salsa Guy” has recently made arrangements with four artisans from the area to showcase their unique items including glass pieces, wood pieces, bowls made from vinyl records, goat milk soaps and lotion, hand-painted signs, jams, knitted children’s sweaters, and much more.

Since Boettcher works full time at Trader Joe’s in Rochester, his time in his store is limited, with hours currently set at Thursday - 12 - 4 p.m., Friday and Saturday - 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., but any time the lights are on he will open the door for customers. With the artisans that have come aboard, the doors of the business will be open more hours in the future.

Revitalizing downtown Spring Valley is a goal that is important to Boettcher and he believes it is vital to bring in more people. He has renovated his business and is currently remodeling the upstairs of his building for personal living space.

Boettcher will bring life to the outside .....
