Inspired by the flavors and vibrant colors of Mexican cuisine, we balance the heat of several types of chili peppers with Hawaiian Black Lava & Red Alaea salts. We then add organic carrot and cilantro to the mix to round out the taste-profile. Try this spicy blend on crab cakes, chicken tacos, or on a southwestern-style salad.
Click on the tabs above for more application and dish ideas, or to read the complete description of this premium gourmet salt.
We add several different chili peppers to our blend to create a comprehensive heat profile including ultra-spicy habanero, more mild guajillo, fruity ancho and slightly-sweet mulato. We then use organic dried cilantro and carrot to our blend, which unifies all of the ingredients to produce an intense but also mature flavor profile.
Our Hot Habanero is very versatile, which allows the home chef to add spicy heat to almost any meal. Sprinkle onto chopped chicken or ground beef for flavor-forward soft tacos. Try it on the rim of a bloody mary or saucy margarita for attention-grabbing flavor and color. Or add this blend to homemade salsa or guacamole for additional heat.

I thought a "hot habanero" salt would be hot... but didn't expect this amount of heat. Great if you like "HOT" but not for the timid!

Put it in marinara sauce to make a quick Arrabiata sauce!

Sprinkle this on top of meatloaf for a zippy treat. I loved it!

In making a chicken tortilla soup, I added this because I didn't have any chili powder to add and the result was perfection! In fact, it was better than the original recipe that I had. It had a nice kick but not overly hot. I highly recommend it!

Ok, this stuff is amazing. Got to try it live this weekend at a food show in Chicago, and I can't stop thinking about it. Purchased the stuff right there and then. You won't be sorry. Seems to go well with everything.

I worried whether this might be TOO hot, as some habanero things seem to need to knock you out of your sox to "prove themselves" - but this is JUST RIGHT. I transferred about half the bottle into a small salt grinder and we use it at the dinner table in place of salt & pepper. It's awesome with the little grinder as it makes the pepper flakes finer and more easily dispersed over whatever you're eating. REALLY good on turkey sandwiches and rare roast beef!

I tend to shy away from anything containing the word Habanero but I love this salt. It's spicy but balanced. Really perks up cheese quesadillas.

Love this salt. It works well with a lot of foods. It looks really cool too with all the black and red and green.

My fresh garden cucumbers, broccoli, and tomatoes really "pop" when I sprinkle on this blend. I do not know how I ever enjoyed them without the hot habanero blend.

I really like this one - it's great on just about everything. Spicy but not painful. I've even taken it out to sushi restaurants and put it on edamame - so good. The waiter gives you a funny look but it's worth it. There are some chewy bits in there, I like them but my wife doesn't care for them.
