Our Cobanero chili is a rare Maya variety of chili pepper, grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán in 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. Use caution - at 30,000-50,000 in Scoville units, these chilis pack a punch, they're spicier than serrano peppers and in the same range as cayenne peppers.

What they're saying:

“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. On previous visits, we couldn't find a direct farm source so Don Amilcar (who also grows our cardamom and black lime) offered to grow them for us himself!

I don't want to run out!

I love these feisty little chili flakes! I ordered more so I am sure I won't run out! They have a lovely fruitiness that's really unique and a nice amount of heat.

Cobanero Chile Flakes are the bomb!

I love the heat level and the complexity it adds to simple things, like scrambled eggs and Spanish tortilla. I also added 1 teaspoon to the brownies with a dulce de leche swirl...there weren't even crumbs left. I'm almost halfway through the bottle! So good!

The best chili flakes I've ever had

I adore these cobanero chili flakes. They're wonderfully fruity & aromatic and have just the right amount of spice to liven up scrambled eggs, stir fries, nachos, etc. If you like heat, definitely pick these up.
