Rolando’s aim was to create the flavors and tastes that reminded him of his childhood and time spent in the company of his family. KanKun Cooking sauces range are the perfect combination of ingredients to showcase the flavors of Mexican street food in every jar.
Tinga Cooking Sauce
KanKun Tinga Cooking Sauce is an earthy, spicy, smoky-sweet sauce originated from the Puebla Region. This sauce is made with a blend of fresh ingredients: tomato puree, onions, garlic, smoky jalapenos.
Tinga Cooking sauce is the base for ‘Chicken Tinga’ (shredded chicken), that is one of the most popular dishes in Mexican street food. Chicken tinga served as a base for Mexican tacos, burritos, tostadas. This sauce will also go well to condiment pork or beef.
Pastor Cooking Sauce
KanKun Pastor cooking sauce is a combination of dried chilies, tomato, onion, spices and pineapple. This cooking sauce delivers in one simple step the same sweet-chili flavors and rich consistency of the famous Mexican Street food dish Tacos al Pastor, where pork is marinated and then slowly cooked with a gas flame on a vertical rotisserie called “trompo” (lit: spinning top), very similar to how shawarma is done, with a piece of fresh onion and a pineapple on top.
Make great tasting Mexican street food in your own kitchen, forget the “trompo”, just add the cooking sauce to a piece of pork, slow cook, served with tortillas and grilled slices of pineapple. This cooking sauce is also suitable to marinade beef and chicken.
“It has been said that Al Pastor was developed in Mexico is based on the shawarma spit-grilled meat brought by the Lebanese immigrants to Mexico in the 19th and early 20th centuries”.
Pibil Cooking Sauce
If you ever wanted to cook the popular Pibil at home, but you were put off by the lengthy process and the sourcing of the long list of ingredients, you will be pleased to know that you can now buy it in a jar.
KanKun Pibil cooking sauce delivers a sensational fruity, and spicy flavour with delicious citric notes brought by the combination of oranges, dried chillies and the annatto paste. This sauce has a beautiful intense brick colour brought by the annatto paste, called by the Aztecs “Achiote”. Pibil can be used to marinade pork, beef, chicken and fish.
