The Capsicana Chilli Company sells, you guessed it, chillies!
I used Capsicana’s chillies in anger, so to speak, when I made Valentine Warner’s carne con chile recipe a few months ago. The smells they released during cooking were heady and the flavour they gave to the finished dish was wonderful. The ancho poblano chilli brought a distinctive dried fruit flavour and the chipotle a wonderfully smoky kick.
Most of the product range is from Mexico and includes familiar names such as ancho poblano, chipotle and habanero (which smells like chocolate!) Capsicana also sell a selection of herbs and spices, including spice mixes.
The best way to learn the distinct characteristics of these different chillis, herbs and spices is to cook with them yourself so I’m delighted to be able to offer not one, not two, not three but four Capsicana Chilli Co. sets to readers of Kavey Eats.
Each prize set includes the following products and is worth over £40! UK delivery is included.
Chillies – Ancho Poblano, Bhut Jolokia, Cascabel, Chipotle, Guajillo, Habanero, Pasilla, Piquin
Herbs & Spices – Mexican Oregano, Annatto Powder, Epazote, Mexican Cinnamon
Mixes – Fajita Mix, Salsa Chilli Kit
