Salty, spicy, and tangy!

When the weather gets hot, a refreshing treat is in order. For those who want a little spice to battle the heat, there’s the Mangonada. Swirls of bright red, topped with chunks of juicy mango, the Mangonada, also known as Mangoneada or Chamango,is a summertime favorite in Mexican communities. 
One of the key ingredients in the Mangonada is chamoy, which is a traditional Mexican condiment that is typically served as a dip for fresh fruit but is the perfect addition to the Mangonada to balance the sweetness of the mango.

What is Chamoy?
Chamoy is a condiment made of fruit (usually apricot, plums, or mango), dried chiles, and lime juice. Chamoy is a condiment found all over Mexico, topping fruit, drizzled on nachos, and mixed into cocktails.

Depending on your location, you can find Tajín, chamoy, and tamarind straws — their sour, chewy coating adds an extra tickle of tartness — at supermarkets or Latin American grocers; all three are available online.

What is Tajín? 
 Tajín ingredients are ground dried chile peppers (a blend of chiles de árbol, guajillo, and pasilla), dehydrated lime, and sea salt.
