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. The price is per pepper

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
