No passport required.
If you thought you knew authentic Mexican cuisine but have yet to cross the border - por favor – consider the food of the colorful colonial city of Oaxaca de Juárez, the capital of the state of Oaxaca. You will quickly realize what you have been missing. Crowned as the culinary capital of Mexico, Oaxaca is a melting pot of sixteen indigenous groups, each bringing their own traditions for cuisine, handicrafts, and celebrations. So whether you shop for rugs from a Zapotec weaver, enjoy a tipple of artisanal mescal, or stroll the markets past the stalls of smoky chipotles, you can’t help but find yourself settling into a pace, rhythm and lifestyle that is transporting. Nowhere is food more integral to that lifestyle than here.
When visiting a place like Oaxaca with its rich ancestral heritage, you can really start to see the impact of centuries of history on culinary tradition. In a time before refrigeration and to preserve fresh ripe jalapeños, the Mesoamericans who pre-date the Aztecs smoked them to a leathery brown suppleness. Though the technique is pre-Aztec, the word chipotle itself can be traced to Nahuatl (Aztec) word chilpoctli, meaning smoked chile. Chipotles, both Morita and Meco, are quintessential mainstays of Mexican cuisine. We have taken these chipotles, along with other indigenous chiles, such as ancho and guajillo, and added umami to bring out both heat and an unctuous savory profile. To this we combine pepitas, dried mango and orange peel. Olé. oo’mämē Mexican Chile Crisp delivers the indigenous aromas and flavors of Mexican cuisine and concentrates their essence into a single source that will elevate any dish to something quite extraordinary. It is a bright and bold addition to anything you might whip up in the kitchen, making your taste buds stand up and take note.
