    Jostlori's Note:

    PREP TIME INCLUDES 30 minutes of hydration time. On a recent trip back to the U.S., my brothers introduced me to a yummy drink concoction called a Chamango. I was instantly hooked, but alas I knew that once back in Costa Rica it would become just a distant memory. I am so happy to say that I was wrong! Just happened to find a bag of Ancho chiles in the kitchen cupboard when I got home. I had purchased them on a trip Walmart in San Jose, not knowing what I would do with them. But since dried chiles are a rarity here, I snatched them up anyways. It must have been fate!!! Anyways, I scoured the web to find a recipe for Chamoy, the principal ingredient in the Chamango.

      Intriguing, I had to try this! Mine turned out only slightly spicy, and the recipe yielded 2 3/4 fl. cups. This made Chamango look like a sundae, which you will love if you love mango. Found my dried ancho chiles at a Mexican grocer. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Jositori. Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8's visit to Mexico.
