A little heat goes a long way to making a dish taste amazing! Spicy seasonings add a kick of interest and balance other flavors in a cuisine. Although spicy foods may not be favorites of everyone, they definitely deserve some culinary recognition and appreciation. For our customers who just can’t get enough heat, we have complied our favorite spicy seasonings!
Heat & Honey
Turn up the heat on barbecue! Our Heat and Honey is the perfect blend of sweet honey and fiery chiles, with just a hint of citrus. This blend is wonderful on just about any grilled meat. We love it on burgers, steaks, chicken, shrimp, and salmon. Its even delicious on veggies, corn-on-the-cob and popcorn!
Our Cajun Spice is a HOT combination of spices common in New Orleans and the South. Cumin, garlic, salt, paprika, onion, black pepper, oregano, rosemary, and cayenne make this spice an eclectic mix of flavor profiles.
This mix is an essential for traditional Cajun dishes like gumbo, etoufee, and shrimp Creole. An easy choice for chicken wings and fish, our Cajun Spice also makes spicy and flavorful addition to burgers, steaks and pork chops. It is even tasty on corn-on-the-cob, French fries, and popcorn! Experiment with the amount you use in recipes to gauge the spiciness of the dish.
Hot Maple Cajun
Our fiery Cajun Spice gets a sweet and tangy makeover in this intriguing spice combination. Our Hot Maple Cajun is a great blend for grilled aquatic fare like salmon and catfish. Also an excellent addition to chicken and veggies, or Cajun-up red meats like pork chops, ribs, brisket, and venison.
Just one taste of our Caribbean Spice will have you dreaming of sandy beaches and sunny skies! Bright citrus flavor, combine with classic Caribbean spices like nutmeg and clove, and just the right amount of heat, make this blend one of our absolute favorites! A wonderful addition to duck or pork, our Caribbean Spice is also excellent on chicken wings, fish tacos, and seafood dishes.
Jamaican Jerk (Hot)
Bring the exotic flavors of the Caribbean to your backyard! This is a great blend for all of your grilling needs. Whether sprinkling over burgers, steaks, chicken, pork, fish, or shrimp, it is sure to please. Our Jamaican Jerk (Hot) seasoning has a bit of a kick (by which I mean its HOT), with some pleasant sweet notes as well. It is one of our favorites for chicken wings!
If you are looking for jerk seasoning with all of the flavor but a little less heat, check out our mild Jamaican Jerk blend.
This fiery North African blend is perfect for spicing up just about any dish! Traditionally used to flavor Ethiopian-style stews of meat (known as wats or we’ts), vegetables or lentils, our Berbere Seasoning combines the unique flavors of cumin, coriander, fenugreek and turmeric with the spiciness of cloves, black pepper and chilies. It is a great choice for chicken wings, steaks, pork chops, and grilled veggies. Or bring new flavor to fish tacos and fajitas! Beware, this blend does bring the heat!
Our Green Chili Seasoning balances bold green chili perfectly with classic Mexican flavors for a blend that is as amazing on burgers, eggs and potatoes as it is in a pot of green chili stew! Shake on chicken, pork chops or steak. Or try it as a seasoning for beef or pulled pork tacos! This seasoning has a flavorful heat of about a 7 out of 10. This blend can very slightly in spiciness due to changes in the heat levels of the New Mexico chilies used to create our green chili powder.
Named after the “Queen City” of the Platte River (Sterling, CO), our Queen City Calypso Shake was born from a customer request to combine the island flavors of Trinidad and Tobago with the tastes of Colorado. This blend brings together sultry spices like cinnamon, coriander and orange peel with fresh herbs like chives and dill, all accented by a spicy habanero kick! This blend is the perfect all-purpose seasoning to “shake” on anything from steaks and burgers to chicken and veggies!
Jalapenos are the most popular chile in the United States. A great compliment to a variety of dishes and cuisines, these spicy peppers are a favorite at our house as well. Our Jalapeno Powder is 100 % pure and makes a great substitute for fresh jalapenos. Add to soups, stews, sauces, rubs, and almost any type of dish needing a little extra heat.
Cayenne Pepper Very Hot (90M HU)
This is a blend of red chili peppers which are ground together to achieve uniform color and heat. This cayenne has a very hot flavor that rates 90,000 heat units on the Scoville Scale and is comparable to Bird’s Eye chilies and Pequin peppers.
Bring the heat to any dish! This is extra hot cayenne; add in very small amounts until desired heat level is reached. Add to eggs, omelets, bbq sauce, dips, spreads, burgers, shrimp, or anything that needs a spicy kick!
Horseradish can add that extra “bite” to many dishes. It is most commonly used as a sauce for certain cuts of beef; especially prime rib. Our Horseradish Powder is pure, ground horseradish root imported from Germany.
For a spicy Horseradish sauce, combine 1 part horseradish powder to 3 parts water. Add or subtract the amount of water to form a paste. Then add the paste to mayonnaise, Miracle Whip or sour cream. For cocktail sauce with a kick, add 2 tbsp. horseradish to 1 cup ketchup. Also try adding to dips, mustard, tomato juice, or Bloody Mary’s!
If you can’t get enough horseradish, give our High Plains Blend a try! This zesty blend brings a distinctive kick to lighter foods like white fish, trout and chicken. Also try on veggies or sprinkle on burgers, steak or pork chops.
Sriracha Sea Salt
It doesn’t get much better than Sriracha and sea salt! The tangy heat of sun-ripened Sriracha chiles infused into all-natural flake sea salt make this a great addition to just about everything. Try adding it to soups, sauces, noodles, pizza, and even popcorn! This spice is the perfect seasoning for guacamole or pico de gallo, and even makes a great topping for cantaloupe and watermelon!
Ghost Pepper Sea Salt
For those who like it even hotter! Even though our Ghost Pepper Sea Salt packs some serious heat, it is one of our most popular infused salts. Made from pure, unrefined sea salt and the Naga Jolokia pepper, this salt has a spicy hot flavor that is without compare. Named for one of the most venomous snakes in India, this pepper, also know as the King Cobra Chili, has a blazing heat that is out of this world. Try on fajitas, tacos, pizza, veggies, or even popcorn!
Spicy Olive Oils and Marinades
Infuse flavor from the very beginning of the cooking process with our spicy olive oils and marinades! Our Roasted Chile & Lime and Jalapeno Olive Oils are perfect for sauteing or roasting veggies and potatoes. Or use them to coat chicken, fish and flank steak before grilling. They also make excellent oils for frying or scrambling eggs.
Our Southwest Chipotle Marinade and Zesty Steak Marinade feature a blend of olive oil and spices perfect for adding flavor and just the right amount of heat to meats and veggies. Use them as an overnight marinade for chicken, pork and beef, or use to saute veggies and seafood right in the pan!
