Bowl of Chilon

What is Chilon?

Chilón is a unique Mexican seasoning made from the concept of chili, lime and spices. This uncooked, super unique and vibrant seasoning can be used to coat the rims of glasses for drinks like Micheladas, Bloody Mary, Margaritas, or even non-alcoholic drinks also used as a marinade, dress your fruits, or condiment vegetables, your favorite protein and more


Start Cooking With Chilón

You can use this Chilón unique blend almost everything, you can think of. In Mexico, locals love to sprinkle it over fresh fruits and vegetables. It adds a wonderfully fresh, citrusy, and piquant taste to the fruit that combines perfectly with the fruit’s natural sweetness. As the Unexpected Employee likes to say, it adds a “unique flavor” to everything. For a summer treat it goes well over juicy slices of watermelon and mangos, crunchy bites of apples or slices of cucumbers and jicama. You can sprinkle it over any of your favorite fruits or vegetables.

Use the seasoning mix in marinades or spice rubs for chicken, fish, shrimp, and even steak for a completely different flavor. For those of you that love popcorn, next time sprinkle some Chilón over the kernels—it’s delicious! There really isn’t much that Chilón doesn’t taste great on.

    Outstanding product! We have kids, and it is hard to cook, but with the unique blends of Chemichurri and Chilon, they love the food! We gave some to our neighbors to try as well, and they are hooked on them. They have gone out and purchased all of the varieties of The Unexpected Employee unique blends so they could sample other flavors

    I recently discovered The Unexpected Employee’s unique blends for my family meals. I love the fact that there is easy and fast to make! My family loves going camping, and I love that they can eat a plant-based burger with great unique flavors, and I don’t have to worry about adding a bunch of seasoning and salt!

    I was skeptical about these, but my boys love fruits with seasonings, so I tried them. I ate an entire bag before I realized I was supposed to give them to my boys. My 8 & 14 years old love them.

    Chilon with fruits is fantastic, easy to make, and pack for a park day!

    Chilon changed the way I prepare my drinks! I now master the art of micheladas and Blody Maries, and sometimes I don’t even have to add alcohol to them and have the same tangy flavor! Definitely buying again!
