Palillo, a condiment made from tomatoes and onions, has a history dating back at least to the Middle Ages.
However, the condiment was widely used in the United States during the early 20th century as a cheap way to serve food.
Nowadays, the tomato and onion sauces used in palillos are made by the same company, Organizador del Condimentos Sabor (Organic Palillos), which is based in Mexico.
But the company says that its palillo sauce, made from the tomatoes and onion, is different from the ones used by many restaurants.
“Palillo is not the same as regular condiments,” said Luis Barrera, executive vice president of the company.
Organizadores Palillo brand, made by Organizado del Condiments Sabor, uses fresh tomatoes and fresh onions to make a condiments that’s more flavorful than palillas, but still has some of the original flavors.
Palillas are made from a tomato-based sauce made with water, tomato paste and salt, and a bit of vinegar, according to Organizados website.
Organizers say that they’ve had customers request the sauce as a “sauce for palilloes.”
“They asked us to make palillones, but they weren’t happy,” Barrera said.
In the last decade, Palillo has grown rapidly in popularity among consumers.
In 2016, it was the top-selling condiment in the U.S. with an average of more than 2 million palillons sold.
Organizer Organizadas Palillo brand now has more than 25 million palilos on hand.
The company also makes a variety of other condiments.
In addition to palilloses, the company sells its other condiment products: salsa de cabeza, made with jalapeño, onion and lime, and salsa de chorizo, made using pork and tomato.
Organizes Palilloses and Salsa de Chorizos are available in Mexican restaurants across the country.
The new palillose brand is expected to reach the U, Canadian, and European markets.
The palillotes are made with tomatoes, onions and a pinch of salt.
In a 2016 blog post, Organizes stated that the sauce will “offer a fresh, flavorful, and simple way to add a touch of flavor to your food.”
Organizes says it will make palillas available in stores nationwide starting in February.
