The El Diablito Story
100% clean, healthy protein in bold teriyaki and kickin' chili lime flavors that'll make you say "Quiero más."
Started in the summer of 2017, El Diablito jerky is the most sustainable meat-based jerky. Last summer the Acarí team began experimenting with ways to preserve the invasive "devil fish" to craft a protein-packed snack for people on-the-go. After several months of playing around with flavors in a household dehydrator, El Diablito was born. Because of the devil fish's mild flavor and firm texture, El Diablito jerky tastes and feels like beef jerky, but without the sin. As an invasive fish, the devil fish is treated as by-catch and commonly discarded by rural fishermen.
We're processing this naughty lil devil into a tasty treat chock full of protein and omega-3's, in turn providing a valuable new source of employment for rural fishermen. There's no concerns of overfishing or fish farming here. Every batch of El Diablito is made by hand without nitrites or other chemical preservatives. El Diablito's the jerky you crave but without the guilt of traditional meat jerkies.
