Cobanero Chili Flakes (1.5 oz)
Burlap & Barrel's 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. Use caution - at 30,000-50,000 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:
"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
