You possibly don’t know what this preparation is all about however if you study carefully the name of the recipe you will find the key... xoco = xoconostle, chile = guajillo pepper. That is what the xocochile is the combination of xoconostle with chili, although other ingredients are also used that help to complement the salsa.
This recipe comes to us from the state of Guanajuato, where the most varied repertoire of the culinary uses of the xoconostle has been developed. This fruit is from the family of the cactaceae, it is similar to the prickly pear but its flavor is acidic and complex.
When the xoconostle is combined with the guajillo pepper an extraordinary flavor is obtained. The salsa is slightly spicy, fresh, it has strong flavors and the acidic flavor of the xoconostle can always be perceived. The xocochile can be used to accompany some dish that has pork or beef.

To make the salsa guajillo peppers are used and don’t buy the ones that have transparent parts because this indicates that they are in disrepair.
