Our Cobanero Chili is a rare Maya variety of chili pepper with a fierce, smoky heat and a lush, fruity aroma. It's perfect for anyone who appreciates true chili flavor. It's grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán, Guatemala. The flavor is fruity like a peach, sweet, slightly smoky, and brightly spicy. They're spicier than serrano peppers and in the same range as cayenne.

Origin:

Cobán, Guatemala

Aliases:

 Chile Cobanero

Process:

Air-dried

Ingredients:

Cobanero chili pepper (Capsicum annuum)

Tasting notes:

Papaya • Roasted Corn • Fire

What they're saying

I love Burlap & Barrel’s lightly smoky Cobanero Chili Flakes for pretty much everything when I want to feel warm.
The burnished red flakes add a bright fruitiness and tantalizing spiciness unlike the straightforward heat of standard crushed red pepper.
It's a hot, fruity and tangy chili pepper that works great on everything from pizza to stir fries

COOKING

SOURCING

This is a really, really special chili varietal called a Cobanero Chili, only cultivated in the area around the city of Cobán in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala. We were looking for farmers who grew this chili, which is one of the oldest domesticated chili varietals, and asked Don Amilcar (who also grows our cardamom and black lime) if he knew anyone. He did us one better and started growing them himself.

Cobanero Chili Flakes

We eat a KETO food lifestyle. We make our own KETO beef chili- we add the cobanero chili flakes to add “heat and spice” to it with great results- the seasoning is fresh with no metallic tastes as other chili spices bring. The spice mixes well into the dish and provides even heat. We love all the spices we have purchased from B&B- we just ordered 6 more!

We use it on everything, it seems to add just the right heat and warmth to just about everything. We can’t keep enough of it.
