icon How To Use Carolina Reaper Flakes

September 19, 2022 1 min read

Not sure to do with your Carolina Reaper grinder or sample of Reaper flakes?

Some of our favorite uses are:

  • Mix with sour cream and then dollop on nachos, quesadillas, or in burritos. Squeezing a bit of lime into the mixture is especially delicious.
  • Add to soups or stews - remember, a little goes a long way, so start small and adjust to taste. You can add more, but you can't take it out.
  • Make spicy popcorn by melting butter and mixing in the flakes (along with any other seasoning, like garlic powder or black pepper) before drizzling on the popcorn. Keeping them in a wet mixture prevents accidentally inhaling airborne reaper powder, which can cause plenty of sneezing if you're not careful. 
  • And of course, put right on any sort of pizza.

Remember, wash your hands after handling hot peppers, especially before touching any sensitive parts of your body.
