Experience the tropical fruity taste of our Habanero Pepper Powder by pairing it with fresh mangoes, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro to create a simple yet delicious hot salsa. For a milder flavor, mix a teaspoon into ranch dip, or add more for those who can handle the heat. Our Habanero Pepper Powder is also perfect for grilling, simply add a dash to chicken, steak, pork, and more.
Habanero peppers come in a variety of colors and types, with heat levels ranging from 60,000 to 600,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Our orange habanero peppers regularly test at between 300,000 SHU to 350,000, making them hotter than the usual orange habanero peppers found in local grocery stores.
The habanero pepper has a long and complicated history, originating from Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and commonly found in Mexican cuisine. If you accidentally get habanero powder on your face or in your eyes, use a dry cloth to remove as much as possible, then flush your eyes with a saline solution or contact solution. If pain persists, baby shampoo can help remove the capsaicin oil causing the discomfort.
