Pancas a rare but favourite chilli in Peru.You may or may not know it, but all the world's chillies can be traced back to Central America, and as such, these chillies can be thought of as the original chillies! Panca chillies are a little spicy, and best used in stews and fish dishes. You can also use Panca chilli flakes to rub into meat before grilling. The smoky berry flavour in this chilli also greatly complements cacao, and thus is a favourite chilli to use blended with chocolates.

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.

Arrived promptly and in good condition. HIgh quality


Perfect for adding that kick to my stews and soups, plus the sauce I made from these made me feel like I was back in Mexico, sipping cerveza by the sea.
