What is habanero powder?
A powder made from pure fire – that’s ground habanero. It’s extra hot – 100,000 to 325,000 on the Scoville scale – with that delicious habanero citrusy sweetness. Try it as a rub for extreme barbecue, as a potent powder for spicy cocktails, or as a base for some extreme chili powder blends. If you want the perfect powder for fiery salsas (especially tropical salsas), habanero powder is it. See PepperScale’s habanero pepper profile for more information on this chili pepper.

Habanero powder can act as a substitute for the chili pepper in a pinch, and it’s a preferred ingredient for extra-hot sauces, dips, and salsa where smoothness is key.
