Chamoy Pasta with Chick’n Carnitas

Pasta in an ancho chile, apricot, & chipotle sauce with shredded chick’n carnitas & veggies.

Short history: Chamoy is a type of savory sauce that is often used in Mexican dishes. However, the origin of the sauce is debated. The name is believed to be derived from a Cantonese word 西梅, or see mui. Some people think that it is a Mexican adaptation of a Japanese sauce that utilizes pickled ume – the Mexican version using apricot, plum, or mango as the fruit base. Tsampoy is a Filipino treat with salted, sweet fruit that also might be related to Chamoy. Whatever the origins of this sauce, this sweet and sour dish will provide you with essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories.

Reheating instructions: Warm in a pan over medium heat for 2 minutes or microwave on high for 2 minutes.
