- 2 tablespoon thinly sliced shallot
- 2½ tablespoon tamarind concentrate
- ¼ Truvia
- ½ teaspoon Thai chili powder
- 1 thinly chopped green onion
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 2 teaspoon Golden Mountain seasoning soy sauce

Store bought chili dip
A lady we met here in the Houston area makes a more Mexican version of the same thing. It’s like the convergent evolution of foods. You have a similar country, climate and plant wise, and you see similar recipes evolve. This one is so similar, in fact, you can just switch them out.
Her’s is more fruity than the Tiger Cry version though. I love them both. You won’t regret it either way you go. Here are mangos around her dip, which is what we actually used tonight. You can find her at this Instagram account, PicaQueen, and support a small startup that deserves to go big. She did not give me her dip, I paid for it and she didn’t ask for my help, I just believe in karma.
