Our Hot Monster Gift Basket has all of our hottest blends and flavors. The only reprieve from the flames in this one is the olive oil. Basket includes:
African Bird Pepper (also known as Peri Peri) is a cousin to cayenne pepper. With a Scoville rating between 150,000 to 350,000, this one is a scorcher. Frequently used in African and Portuguese dishes, this hotty also works well in roasted dishes and stews. It also pairs well with garlic, lemon, and herbs.
Ancho chile powder comes from dried and smoked poblano peppers, with a heat level somewhere between sweet bell peppers and the mildest jalapenos (1,000 – 1,500 SHU). Ancho has a delicious, rich smoky flavor and has a way of deepening the flavor of the dishes it is used in, like chili, stews and sauces.
Chipotle powder has a smoky heat and gives an earthy spiciness to many sauces and dishes, and is rated between 2,500 – 8,000 SHU. We also use this to season compound butters and perk up things like deviled eggs in place of paprika.
Ghost Pepper Salt is perfect for firing up your taste buds! This is VSpicery’s hottest salt blend. Serious heat with lots of flavor. Ghost chili rates between 855,000 – 1,041,427 SHU.
Habanero Salt is a step down from our Ghost Pepper Salt, putting it around 300,000 SHU. We use this one frequently as a table salt for spicy meals.
En Fuego Seasoning Blend is our hottest spice blend and has our top three spiciest peppers in the mix. Even with all this heat, we made sure to give it lots of flavor. Perfect for spicy chicken wings, chili and veggies.
Maroon Jerk Hot has a balanced and very spicy flavor that is delicious with chicken or fish.
Red Hot Sting is our step down from En Fuego, and makes really great chicken wings, sauces and pork chops.
Seraphina Olive Oil is a Greek organic olive oil that has a full buttery flavor with grassy notes at the finish. Perfect for all your olive oil applications.
