Cobanero Chili Flakes
Sourced from the Guatemalan city of Cobán, the cobánero chili pepper has been growing for thousands of years and has been enjoyed since the Mayan times. This chili pepper is one of the oldest, domesticated peppers in existence. The peppers are air-dried and then ground and carry an intense smoky and fiery heat.
Use this sparingly as a finishing spice on eggs, grilled vegetables, or meats. Or try your hand at the national dish of Guatemala, Kak’ik, a fiery turkey soup. Upgrade your soups, stews, and chilis with a pinch of this in addition to your spice mixture of choice.
You can expect a heat level ranging from 30,000 to 50,000 Scoville units, so while it is not quite as spicy as Thai chili peppers, it still packs a punch.
