CHILE ANCHO 70G
Chile Ancho is a mild, sweet-tasting variety of a dried ripened poblano chilli.
Wrinkly-skinned ancho chillies are the most commonly used dried chilli in México with a fruity, earthy flavour that’s indispensable whether you’re making salsas or traditional sauces and stews like mole and carne con chile.
CHILE GUAJILLO 50G
Chile Guajillo is a mild to medium hot dried chilli.
Smooth-skinned guajillo chilli is one of the workhouse spices of Mexican cooking (along with the ancho chilli) and has a bright, tangy flavour that benefits from toasting.
CHILE PASILLA 50G
Wrinkly-skinned pasilla chillies have a rich but tangy flavour that pairs well with red meat and mushrooms.
MEXICAN OREGANO 20G
Mexican Oregano is an aromatic and spicy cut leaf dried herb.
Native to México, this distinctive herb is related to verbena and has a citrus flavour that is very different from Mediterranean oregano.
CHILE CHIPOTLE POWDER 60G
Chile Chipotle is a medium–hot, smoke-dried jalapeño chilli. Our powder is made from ground whole chipotle chillies.
Small, thick-fleshed chipotle chillies are one of the most popular and well-known Mexican chillies, with a unique smokiness that works particularly well with anything slow-cooked.
The People Behind The Products
Since 1993, Dodie, Ramon and the Cool Chile team have been providing the UK with a range of flavours for real Mexican cooking.
Whether it's salsas and sauces made with toasted dried chillies, tortillas fresh from the comal, Mexican chocolate whipped into a hot frothy drink, Mexican oregano rubbed over pozole, or black beans bubbling in a pot with epazote, these are the tastes and spiced sensations they want to bring into your home.
They began small, importing a handful of chilli varieties and selling them from their market stall, first in Portobello Market and then in Borough. They have since expanded into producing their own salsas, sauces and pastes, faithfully made using traditional Mexican recipes and delicious imported chillies.
