Comapeño Chile Powder

Tropical fruit, High Heat


Comapeño chiles are a rare wild chile originating in the mountains of Veracruz. Ours is organically grown, sun-ripened and hand harvested locally in Booneville, California. This vibrant orange chile powder packs a very spicy kick with an unforgettable tingle reminiscent of citrus zest and tropical fruit. Use it like you would use any hot chile powder or liven up your guacamole, fish tacos or favorite stews with this potent spice.

Level of Spiceyness: SHU=50,000-100,000 (twice the heat of Cayenne!)
