If fury had a flavor – angry and hot.

As low as $9.00

These peppers are incredibly hot, with a level just under the habanero. They possess a fruity-chai-teriyaki scent, and the flavor is spicy and sharp. The wiri-wiri is a complicated specimen and doesn’t like to be boxed in. This particular chile has roots in South American and Caribbean cuisines, particularly in hot sauces throughout Guyana.

This powder is best reserved for making homemade hot sauces or spiking unique fruit salsas. Its bold flavor and prickly heat make it a must if you have aspirations of keeping a proper South American kitchen.
