Xilli Salsa Macha $19.95

Salsa Macha is nothing like the glorified ketchup you find on supermarket shelves.

It’s made with slowly fried chipotles and toasted peanuts infused in a vibrant, hot, red chili oil. It’s the Mexican answer to chili crisp. This one uses chipotle peppers—dried jalapenos that are gently dehydrated over a low flame, so there’s a subtle smokiness that comes through that you wouldn’t get if the peppers were sun-dried.

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


While this is technically a condiment, it could also be used in marinades or skillet sauces. Try this drizzled on tacos, soups or even pastas like our Sopa Seca with Butternut Squash (the nutty toasted pasta makes a great couple with the peanuts in the salsa macha). We also love a dash of this to spice up a salad or melon-based fruit salad. Or use 1 tablespoon to sautee some veggies. Try tossing cubes of pork or chicken with it and sauteeing. Finish with something like lime juice to balance the richness. Similarly would be good tossed with roasted or pan-fried potatoes for spicy crispy home-fries. Use this also with our skillet glazing method, where you start your aromatics, veggies and fat in a covered skillet, then once crisp-tender you remove the lid and continue to cook until the liquid evaporates and the remaining fat begins to sizzle.
