Hot & Spicy

Hot & Spicy
When Columbus encountered chile peppers in the New World, a culinary revolution was set alight. Before hot peppers were popularized worldwide, ginger, black pepper, Sichuan pepper, and even cinnamon were the spices of choice for adding heat to a dish. Today, chile peppers have evolved to scorching heat levels and adapted to grow in all corners of the globe. Our selection of chile peppers and heat-forward seasonings will delight the culinary hot head. Use some of our chiles with caution!
