What Is In "Chilpachole"? The Bloody Mary Of Campeche, Mexico
“Chilpachole” Who likes shrimp? And what does this shot glass full of dark red/brown soup have to do with shrimp. Well, let me explain, as part of your “botanitas” (free snacks before your meal) at Tio Fitos, the server will come around with what looks like a diner thermus but instead of coffee coming out, a small glass of “Chilpachole” is poured. A thick bisque made from boiling mostly shrimp, arbol chili, tomatoes, epazote, guajillo peppers, garlic, onion, and lime. Also a common drink found in the cantinas, aka the true Mexican Bloody Mary - seafood style 🍤.
