Chillies from this part of the world, like our Ancho Chilli from Peru, carry much more flavour and aroma than commonly found chillies elsewhere in the world. What they don't pack the highest punch in heat, Ancho chillies more than make up for in flavour. They're sweet and lightly peppery, reminiscient of raisins, and have a slight smoky aroma to them. Theye great ground and put into simple ingredients like potatoes, cream & tomatoes.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
It's not easy to find such a wide selection of dried chilis, but mine arrived quickly and freshly sealed. The ancho chilis were perfect for our Latin inspired dishes!
Peppers are top quality and arrived in excellent condition
