About

This choricero pepper paste is made with the flesh of choricero peppers previously air-dried and hydrated.

Choricero peppers are a type of large, mild, fleshy red pepper, often used in place of paprika. They give a rich earthy flavour to soups and casseroles. To preserve them they are hand strung then air-dried.

A longer pepper than the ñora, their skin is thicker and it has more flesh that can be scooped out when re-hydrated. Choricero has a slightly spicy taste. Though less sweet than ñoras, they are still considered mild rather than hot

The choricero pepper is an important ingredient in Spanish gastronomy, especially in northern Spain. It is an essential ingredient for Bacalao a la Vizcaína or Patatas a la Riojana. They are often used in meat, fish, lentil and vegetable stews for depth of flavour.

Description

An intense mildy smoky and spicey pepper paste made from choricero peppers grown at an altitude of over 700m in La Rioja, this paste is a real time saver: instead of soaking a dried pepper, here the work is done for you, and the smoky flesh of the choricero really adds depth and warmth to a dish. Perfect for stews and soups.
