Not like any other red pepper you have ever tasted, guaranteed! Pure piquillo peppers imported to the U.S. carry an exclusive seal of authenticity, granted only to those peppers that are hand-picked in the Ribera del Ebro region of Northern Spain. The Piquillo pepper, meaning "little beak" for its distinctive pointed shape, have for generations been picked and produced almost entirely by hand, using no chemicals in the washing, roasting and peeling process. Slow roasting over open wood fires gives these unique peppers a complex, rich and teasingly spicy-sweet flavor.
Piquillo peppers are very versatile and can be used in many applications. Try cooking, roasting or sautéing with them. Put them in salads or stuff them. Navarra is known for big ripe juicy vegetables. It is also the home of the running of the bulls and the St. Fermin festival in which the Cabazones or big heads are worn throughout the streets. Our Matiz Navarro piquillos displays one of these well known symbols of Navarra.
