Our Cobanero Chili is a rare Mayan variety of chili pepper, grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán, Guatemala. It has a lush, fruity aroma and a fierce, smoky heat that makes everything taste better. Perfect for anyone who appreciates true chili flavor.

They're SO good - fruity like a peach, sweet, slightly smoky, and brightly spicy. They're spicier than serrano peppers and in the same range as cayenne.

What they're saying:

"I add the Burlap & Barrel Cobanero to everything." Cookbook Author Hetty McKinnon tells the Wall Street Journal

"The burnished red flakes can be used in a wide range of dishes; they add a bright fruitiness and tantalizing spiciness unlike the straightforward, one-dimensional heat of standard crushed red pepper." -Kate Krader, Bloomberg

“These fruity, smoky Guatemalan peppers are my No. 1 favorite chile flakes. They are the key ingredient in my ginger cookies to help amplify the heat, and the perfect popcorn seasoning. I also keep a jar of infused olive oil at the ready to brush on focaccia, or drizzle over anything else.” -Zoë Kanan, Pastry Chef and Eater Young Gun

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.

So so so good

I love this Cobanero Chili!! I put it in almost everything; popcorn, eggs, pizza, hummus. It's got just the right amount of zing and a surprising, subtle fruitiness.

Basic red pepper flakes went to college!

This doesn’t just add heat but a tangy flavor as well and they are so fresh! A new fixture to the spice
