Easy Recipe: How To Make Chamoy Sauce

Have you heard of chamoy? This possibly addictive sweet and sour Mexican dipping sauce is the way to kick up your snacks.

Chamoy has a pleasant spiciness courtesy of chili powder and a nice tang from fresh lime juice. It is usually served with fruit but is also great drizzled over shaved ice, toasted nuts or even vegetables like jicama.

This versatile sauce is made with a blend of dried fruits, most often plums and apricots but sometimes mango. Some recipes like this one from chef Rick Bayless use jam as a base while fancier versions even call for hisbiscus flowers.
