Chirmol, a delicious chunky tomato salsa, is a classic Guatemalan condiment!
We stay true to our roots and fire roast the tomatoes to bring out their sweetness and add some earthy smokiness to the mix. Hierbabuena or spearmint is added to give this sauce its unique refreshing flavor. In addition to it’s refreshing flavor, Hierbabuena also has strong healing qualities and is commonly used in Guatemalan cuisine.
In Guatemala, Chirmol, is typically served with carne asada, sausage or grilled potatoes and will compliment a wide variety of dishes. We like to put it on our eggs and toast!
