Mexican products made by Mexicans; food products made by chefs, as your Mexican Abuela used to make.
XILLI is a collection of authentic, traditional and artisanal Mexican Salsas, Moles, Escabeches and Adobos representing our country’s true culinary heritage.
These preparations have been staples in Mexican kitchens for centuries. Now we're making them by hand, elevating traditional recipes and using fresh ingredients, all while keeping conscientious methods in mind and heart.
A staple of any authentic Mexican kitchen, “xilli” is the original Nahuatl term for chili (chile in Mexico). Chili remnants have been found in pottery from Puebla and Oaxaca, dating its use and cultivation as far back as 3000 BC.
All of our products are created in small batches, allowing us to keep a tight rein on quality, while leaving space for experimentation. No matter what your recipe’s origins, our products add subtlety and vitality to any dish because the one ingredient they all have in common is so simple and versatile: chilies.
