What is Chamoy Sauce?

Chamoy is a condiment from Mexico that is usually found as a dip for fresh fruit. It is made with a blend of fruits like apricot, mango or plum with chilies and citrus juices and can vary in spice level.

My introduction to Chamoy came in a package from a business asking me to sample it. Helados La Azteca is a small company based in Waco, Texas. The story from their site talks about how they moved here from Mexico and were disappointed that they could not find the flavors they had grown up with in the area. It was because of this they decided to launch their own venture, bringing Mexican snack foods and Chamoy sauce to their new home. They make their sauce with all-natural ingredients making it SUPER healthy!

How Would You Use Chamoy Sauce?

Chamoy sauce is like a Mexican version of ketchup or other condiment. Most commonly found on fruit carts, chamoy is put on fresh mango slices with a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of salt. It is also found in jars to use as a dip for thicker vegetables and firmer fruits.

Another application is to use is for frozen desserts as a topping. Find your favorite sorbet or shaved ice and you can use chamoy as a drizzle on top to give it a spicy kick. Along these lines, a chamoyada is an icy drink made with shaved eyes, fruit and chamoy!

If you are familiar with Mexican drinks, a Michelada (Mexican Bloody Mary) is made with beer, lime juice, spice, tomato juice, chili peppers and chamoy served in a chilled, salt-rimmed glass.
