Do you know the saying: “Big things come in small packages”? Well, that saying couldn’t be more true when talking about our Piri Piri Spice! Piri Piri (also called peri peri or pili pili) is a turbocharged chili powder that has a deeper and more complex flavor than your run-of-the-mill chili powder, thanks to our unique pepper blend that has been given an extra kiss of citrus. So why not ditch your old, boring, monotone chili powder, and shake things up with our little friend, Piri Piri?
You can substitute USimplySeason’s Piri Piri anywhere chili powder is called for, to give your dish a quick and easy flavor enhancement, but Piri Piri has no problem being the star of your dish, either.
