      Smoked PimentĂłn Paprika

      Our rich, sweet Smoked PimentĂłn Paprika comes from a protected region in Western Spain, where sweet red peppers have been grown and smoked for centuries. Fresh peppers are slowly dried over oak coals, which imbue them with a rich, smoky flavor that imparts a savory depth and gorgeous color.

      • Mix with salt, ground cumin and coriander for a meat seasoning or dry rub
      • Add to your favorite classic Spanish paella recipe

      Silk Chili Flakes

      The Turkish variety of the Aleppo pepper, our summery, mildly spicy Silk Chili was historically ground using heavy silk ropes, giving them a smooth, slippery texture. They have a warm, tomato-like flavor and a medium heat, similar to Espelette and Korean chilis.

      Tasting notes: Roasted Tomato • Honey • Mediterranean Sun


      • Sprinkle over pasta or pizza
      • Add to soups and stews

      Red Jalapeño Chili Flakes

      Our El Jefe–variety Red Jalapeño chili peppers are grown on Fire Tongue Farms in California. Unlike most jalapeño peppers, which are picked while still green, these peppers ripened on the vine, turning bright red and very sweet. They're medium-hot and are perfect for cooking or garnishing, in a tomato sauce, with eggs or on fresh fruit.

      Tasting notes: Summer Tomato • Sugar Cane • High Burn


      • Sprinkle over dips like baba ghanoush and hummus
      • Add to chocolate and fruit for a sweet/spicy kick!

      Cobanero Chili Flakes

      Our Cobanero Chili Flakes are a rare Maya variety of chili pepper with a fierce, bright, slightly smoky heat and a lush, fruity, peachy aroma. The chilis are grown in the mountains around the city of Cobán, Guatemala. They're spicier than serrano peppers and in the same range as cayenne. Perfect for anyone who appreciates true chili flavor!

      Tasting notes: Papaya • Roasted Corn • Fire


      • Add to pots of beans, roasts or braises
      • Add to marinades or sauces for an extra kick

Szegedi 178 is an heirloom variety of hot pepper that has a beautiful aroma and a long, warm burn. The peppers are picked ripe, air-cured in mesh bags, dehydrated, ground and blended with sweet paprika in small batches.

      Tasting notes: Hay Field • Dried Plum • Glowing Coals

      Black Urfa Chili

      Our Black Urfa Chili comes from Urfa, Turkey, where it has been grown and cured for centuries. It has a rich, malty flavor with a lingering burn. The chilis ripen to a bright red color, then are laid out under sheets in the hot summer sun. This technique cures the pepper in its own juices and gives it a deep umami flavor and beautiful dark color.

      Tasting notes: Raisin • Espresso • Summer Night


      • Sprinkle over roasted vegetables, eggs, or cooked proteins 
      • Stir into brownie batter or chocolate cookie dough 

      Smoked Chipotle Chili Flakes

      Our Smoked Chipotle Chili peppers are grown on Fire Tongue Farms in California and smoked over fruit tree branches pruned from a nearby orchard. A chipotle is a smoked jalapeño pepper, so these are the darker, deeper siblings to our El Jefe-variety Red Jalapeños. They're medium-hot and are perfect for cooking or garnishing, in a tomato sauce, with eggs or on fresh fruit.

      Tasting notes: Campfire • Roasted Tomato • Hot & Sweet


      • Season grilled meat or veggies for a smoky spiciness
      • Sprinkle over dips like baba ghanoush and hummus

      Kashmiri Chili Powder

      Our Kashmiri Chili Powder is an heirloom variety grown in Kashmir. The chilis are prized for their flavor and vibrant red color, which imparts a beautiful hue to rubs and stews. The rich color and bright, sweet flavor make this chili powder a perfect everyday alternative to cayenne or hot paprika. Ours is hotter than others you may have tried!

      Tasting notes: Grilled Sweet Pepper • Cucumber • Medium Heat


      • Use in a rub for grilled lamb or other meat kebabs
      • Use anywhere you'd use cayenne pepper, chili powder or hot paprika

      Crushed Red Peppers

      This bright, fruity chili blend as a major upgrade to "run-of-the-mill crushed red pepper that's on every table at your local pizzeria." It's ripe with four different chilis, and it has a hint of sweet smokiness and boasts a beautiful, complex, medium heat.
