A really useful ingredient for adding warmth and rich umami flavour to sauces and casseroles. This is the 550g jar; we also have a small 140g jar too. These choricero peppers are grown at an altitude of over 700m in the mountains of La Rioja in northern Spain. Once dried and ground, choricero peppers are valued for their flavour and deep earthy red colour. Most commonly they are used to give chorizo sausages their flavour and colour. In addition, they are a valuable presevative, avoiding the need for more artificial additives. In this product, they have not been ground but made into a pulp. This is a great ingredient in many Spanish dishes, such as the famous 'Bacalao con pimiento choricero', salt cod with a spicy pepper sauce.
