Habanero peppers clock in at over 200,000 Scoville heat units. While habanero no longer holds the title of “hottest pepper in the world,” its still far from mild!
Spice Specialist habanero powder adds fiery heat with sweet, citrusy undertones to chili, stews, sauces, and dips. It is a common ingredient in Caribbean cuisine.
A little habanero powder goes a long way, so we recommend using it sparingly. Just a pinch will add plenty of heat to your BBQ sauces, dry rubs, and salsas. Besides pairing well with meat, habanero works magic when combined with fruits. This makes habanero pepper a popular addition to salsas, such as mango and pineapple.
