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.
What they're saying:
“I love Burlap & Barrel’s lightly smoky Cobanero Chili Flakes for pretty much everything when I want to feel warm.” -Katie Okamoto, New York Times
"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. I 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

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!
Favorite Chili Spice
Love the quality and flavor! Makes everything taste better!!
Adds a lot of flavor without heat. Goes well with pretty much anything.
Great flavor booster
Adds flavor to any dish from potatoes to eggs to meat/fish. Delicious, low medium heat. Ordered 2 small bottles and now going for the big one :)
Very good, as all of their spices are.
Just the right amount of heat (you can feel it!) that does not steal the flavor away. Cobanero has become my go-to chile when I need a touch of heat.
