Certified organic, kosher + fair trade seasonings included in this set:
- CHIPOTLE—Chipotles are jalapeno chiles that have been left on the bush late in the season to ripen into a deep red, then smoke-dried. These chiles are the workhorses of many Mexican kitchens, as they lend both smokey and spicy flavors. Add to a pot of beans or enchilada sauce. Mix with your salsa or guacamole for a flavor worlds beyond fresh chiles.
- SMOKED CHILI FLAKES—The all purpose stand by, but with more flavor! Use on pasta, stir-fries, soup…. This is especially great added to a meat rub. I use it in my steak seasoning blend.
- BIRDSEYE CHILES—100,000 on the Scottsville Heat Unit rating system. I’d put one in a stew or chili…and take out before serving! Careful handling these, too.
- HABANERO SALT—Yeehaw! This spicy Fusion salt will put a spring in your step. Using ground down high-quality, high-heat habaneros to create an intense sea salt with a kick. This is the perfect salt for anyone who likes to add a little extra punch to anything on the grill. A great match with recipes that call for lime and butter. Use sparingly!
- THAI CURRY—A traditional seasoning used for the entire spectrum of Thai dishes and works just as wonderfully within Szechuan recipes. Goes well with any Thai dish, tofu, vegetables, noodles, and stir fries! I’ve used this on pan fried fish, and it was great.
- WEST INDIES—An intoxicating and alluring blend, which has been popularized by traditional Caribbean dishes, and is best in stir fry entrees, to rub on fish, and as a seasoning base for gumbo. Sweet and spicy!
- MEXICAN TACO—Rev up your next taco party by adding a liberal amount of this spice blend to a little oil or hot fat to help distribute the flavors throughout the meat or vegetables.
