El Navarrico’s Whole Piquillo Peppers Premium are roasted and peeled by hand in the traditional way, keeping all its incredible aromas, flavors, and texture intact. They have a deep scarlet color, and an intense flavor. They are not spicy, but sweet and tangy, with slightly smoky notes.
The El Navarrico Whole Piquillo Peppers Premium are great as a side to meat and fish dishes. They are also great stuffed with cheese, meats, or seafood as appetizer. You can even add them into your cream soups and hummus for a little extra flavor.
