Bourbon Smoked Chili Powder from Bourbon Barrel Foods is a fiery way to shake up a dish. The smoked chili powder uses chili peppers that are domestically harvested and handpicked from Rio Valley in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Bourbon Barrel Foods takes the milled chili peppers to their facility in Louisville, Kentucky, and adds bourbon and smoke flavors to the powder resulting in a spice blend that adds a robust flavor to any dish. But don’t worry. It’s not too spicy.
Heat up the grill by using Bourbon Smoked Chili Powder to add flavorful smoke notes. Or, use it on some homemade fries for a dash for spice and salt. One of the best ways to use it, of course, is chili. Add a twist on chili with the taste of some of the finest Kentucky bourbons. Throw a dash in your cocktails and dust the glass rims with salt and chili powder.
Chili peppers used in Bourbon Smoked Chili Powder come from the family-owned farm Rio Valley. The farm is a recent partner of Bourbon Barrel Foods and promotes the company’s mission of encouraging the use of as many domestic products as possible. The farmers are hands on from start to finish from growing their peppers to the dehydration process. The peppers are washed and sorted by hand before being placed on long wooden trays to be pushed into a gas-fired, dehydration oven. The peppers are then dried and put through a mill to be crushed. With such quality, it's no wonder why Bourbon Barrel Foods uses them for the Hot & Spicy Kentuckyaki too.
