This Ay Caramba Chile blend is made with hot pepper, paprika, cumin, oregano, cloves and garlic. It comes in the form of a fine reddish-brown powder and is ideal for seasoning Tex-Mex recipes.
Traditionally, this blend is composed of a blend of 4 to 7 spices in different proportions depending on the regions of the world where it is prepared, the tastes of each, the flavors desired.
It contains chilli, oregano, garlic, and other spices to achieve the desired aromatic palette. The main ingredient of this spice blend is hot pepper....lovers of hot flavours will appreciate it!
David Vanille's choice: I have chosen to present this blend to you for its subtle balance between spiciness and aromas. It will seduce cooking lovers with its spicy taste but subtly counterbalanced by the milder flavours of garlic, oregano and cumin.
My Ay Caramba Chile blend is composed of the following 6 spices:
Hot pepper alone brings a spicy taste that is found in this blend of spices. However, the combination of different spices brings more subtle flavours to your dishes; the sweetness of garlic compensates for the spiciness of the pepper.
This blend of spices is used mainly in South America, Spain and Portugal. It can be found in Tex-Mex, Iberian and Portuguese cuisine.
If its name evokes Chile, its origins would be more American. It is in the southern 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 the main 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 Chile" 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. It allows, among other things:
The ingredients in this blend of spices make it an ideal companion in the preparation of meals typical of Tex-Mex cuisine, but also of dishes of Iberian origin.
On the nose, you will first feel the smoky notes of this blend and then the spicy aromas will be released, which will quickly be completed by the spiciness of the hot pepper.
Once in the mouth, you will be captured by a lasso of different taste sensations that will occur almost simultaneously.
You will pass from smoky to spicy notes by feeling the sweet presence of garlic. Your taste buds will be pleasantly shaken up.
Simmered preparations, barbecues, fish and shellfish, Mexican beef, Tinga Poblana... Ay Caramba Chile spice goes well with many land and seafood products.
This blend will also enhance all your pasta dishes, polentas, and other starches. Try it in Spaghetti a la Puttanesca according to Julie Andrieu.
Good to know: The Ay Caramba Chile Spice Mix has a high resistance to long cooking times, each of the flavours will remain faithful to what you expect even when preparing simmered dishes
