Description & Use: There are literally hundreds of different chillies, all of which descend from the original ones discovered by the Spanish when they found the Americas. Prior to this chillies were unknown to the rest of the world. The warming bite and delicious capsicum taste of chilli was warmly embraced by nearly every nation on earth, thus we find some form of capsicum or chilli in nearly every cuisine. Dried chillies have a very different flavour to fresh ones, as upon drying a caramelization of the sugars takes place which creates a robust taste not found in fresh chillies, in the same way a sun-dried tomato has a more complex flavour profile than a fresh one.

Green Chilli Powder is harvested when still green and has a distinctive ‘fresh green chilli’ aroma and flavour. An excellent substitute for Jalapeno Chilli Powder.

Use in Mexican recipes, and this chilli goes surprisingly well in Thai and other South East Asian dishes, such as stir-frys, green curries and hot and sour soups. Great in guacamole!

Heat level – 8/10.
