This Ay Caramba Chili blend is composed of hot pepper, paprika, cumin, oregano, cloves and garlic. It comes in the form of a fine red-brown powder and is ideal for seasoning tex-mex recipes.
Traditionally, this blend is composed of 4 to 7 spices in different proportions depending on the regions of the world where it is prepared, the tastes of each, the desired flavours.
It includes chilli pepper, oregano, garlic, and other spices to achieve the desired aromatic palette. The main ingredient of this spice blend is hot pepper... lovers of spicy flavours will appreciate it!
David Vanille's choice: I chose to present this blend for its subtle balance between spiciness and aromas. It will seduce food lovers with its spicy taste but subtly balanced by the milder flavours of garlic, oregano and cumin.
My Ay Caramba Chili blend is composed of the following 6 spices:
The chilli pepper alone brings a spicy taste that is found in this spice blend. However, the combination of the different spices brings more subtle flavours to your dishes; the sweetness of the garlic counterbalances the spiciness of the chilli pepper.
This blend of spices is used mainly in South America, Spain and Portugal. It is found in Tex-Mex, Iberian and Portuguese cuisine.
If its name evokes Chile, its origins would be rather American. It is in the south of the United States, that we find the first traces of it. Then, this mixture was used to bring the necessary flavour to this South American "poor man's dish" and flagship recipe of Tex-Mex cuisine: chili con carne.
Rather spicy and with smoky notes, it accomplished its mission in a prodigious way.
Did you know that? The name of this spice "Ay Caramba Chili" does not refer to the country, Chile, but to the chilli pepper of the same name.
The Ay Caramba Chili spice blend has the benefits of all the ingredients that make it up. Among other things, it allows :
The ingredients that make up this blend of spices make it an ideal companion in the preparation of typical Tex-Mex meals, but also in dishes of Iberian origin.
On the nose, you will first smell the smoky notes of this blend, then the spicy aromas that are quickly completed by the spiciness delivered by the hot pepper.
Once in the mouth, you will be as if captured by a lasso of different taste sensations that will occur almost simultaneously.
You will go from smoky notes to spicy with the sweet presence of garlic. Your taste buds will be pleasantly stimulated.
Stews, barbecues, fish and shellfish, Mexican-style beef, Tinga Poblana... Ay Caramba Chili spice goes well with many land and sea products.
This mixture will also sublimate all your pasta dishes, polentas, and other starchy foods. Try it in Julie Andrieu's Spaghetti a la Puttanesca.
