CHILLI PEPPERS GUINDILLAS

A variety of long yellow-green peppers which are fine-textured and possess a predominant spicy flavour. It is highly prized by lovers of intense flavours. These pickles aren’t too hot to treat as a tapa or ingredient in salads or just “para picar”.

The Guindilla chilli pepper is grown and processed in the Basque region of Spain. It is narrow and long, with a mild heat level and is usually pickled. It is considered a spicy treat and highly valued in the Basque region, and while the region loves a big variety of local peppers, guindillas are among the most popular. They are popular in tapas and often used for flavouring oils too.

These peppers are considered fairly mild, however, they do have a small amount of kick. The word “guindilla” translates from Spanish to “chili pepper” in English, making it for a rather generic moniker. When pickled, they are known as “piparras”, which is interchangeable with “Guindillas la Vasca”.
