When used in moderation, our dried Habañero chile peppers are a good way to add subtle heat to raw dishes, especially those with a high acid content, such as crudos or ceviches. Their warm fruity flavor works well in combination with fruit such as mango, berries, passion fruit, pineapple and orange. They are a key ingredient to the famous Jamaican jerk seasoning, a mix of cinnamon, allspice, salt and dried chile. A traditional bar snack includes combining very finely minced Habañero with dried shrimp, cucumber and lime.
Our Dried Habaneros are ideal in homemade salas, wings and Barbeque sauce
Habañero chile peppers are native to the Caribbean Islands; their name is a derivative meaning “from Havana”. A close relative to the Jamaican Scotch Bonnet, they are often used in the richly spiced cuisine of the region. Their intense heat aids the body in hot climates by inducing light perspiration and thus cooling one’s core temperature.Habaneros are some of the hottest chile peppers and rate around 200,000 - 300,000 Scoville Units. While these pack a nice burn that heat seekers crave they also have a bit of a fruity taste to them.
