The perfect gift for that spicy foodie in your life or anybody that loves Mexican cooking. Our gourmet Mexican chilli flakes all in one box and at a special price too!
Ancho are a very mild heat, somewhere between 1 -3000 SHU (Scoville Scale)* These mild flakes have a hint of plum & raisin, not dissimilar to sweet paprika. I like to use them with chocolate, good in muffins or a rich dark chocolate, tia maria and ancho torte.
Guajillo chilli flakes have a touch more heat but won't overpower your taste buds at all, sitting between 5- 8000 SHU. Just warm with fruity berry overtones. I commonly use a mixture of Ancho and Guajillo together.
Chile De Arbol are a step up in heat, notified by their red / orange colour. These are higher up the Scoville Scale measuring around 30,000 SHU. Very much like Cayenne they display a nutty, grassy flavour and a very subtle smokiness.
One of my all time favourites are Chipotle. Noticeably hotter as they sit at about 50,000 SHU. Good heat and a smoky, almost chocolatey BBQ flavour. I love these in homemade burgers and occasionally sausages. Obviously good in Mexican dishes as are the others.
Quite often Mexican food will call for a melange of different flakes and this value box set will help you achieve authentic results with your cooking.
