Rivsalt Chilli Spices


JALAPENO CHILI makes many of us think of Tex-Mex, the exciting mix of Mexican and Spanish food that Tejanos – Texans of Mexican descent – developed in the late 19th century. Tortillas, nachos, and burritos are some mouth-watering examples that are appreciated by more people than those who live in the Lone Star State.

Our dried and organic green JALAPENO CHILI [Capsicum Annuum] is grown in Spain. The taste is mild, round, and fruity with a heat around 5,000 Scoville units. Sprinkle grated jalapeño over meat dishes such as chili con carne and goulash, season the cheddar cheese sauce and grate jalapeño over your homemade pizza. Jalapeño chili is mild enough to suit most dishes and hot enough to make a difference.

AMAZON CHILI is a medium-hot chili pepper used in many cuisines to add heat and flavor. Whether you grate it over risottos, pasta or tacos, it will give every dish a fiery aroma with a milder, fruity note.

This exclusive yellow AMAZON CHILI [Capsicum Annuum] grows in Colombia and belongs to the sharper but not extreme group of chilies with 50,000-70,000 Scoville heat units. Amazon chilies are harvested just before full ripeness, that’s why they are yellow. Refine your soups, meat dishes and dips with this grated delight.

Time to challenge the kids? Turn their favorite Bolognese into a hot grown-up masterpiece. If you do, a tip: use this yellow one, not bird’s eye chili.

BIRD’S EYE CHILI is the chili you want if you love tongue-tingling heat. Chili in general is used all over the world to add heat and flavor to food, desserts, chocolate and even drinks. Some chilies are actually quite mild. Bird’s eye chili is not.

Our red organic bird’s eye chili [Capsicum Frutescens] originates from Uganda and each plant produces numerous pods. With 90,000-120,000 Scoville heat units, it’s among the world’s hottest chilies. The sharpness is intense and direct, and the taste is similar to Thai chili. Perfect for hot Asian dishes and your home-made BBQ sauce.
