After numerous requests, we felt that the time was right to introduce our Chili Biltong Spices.
Introducing our newest spice blend – Bennie’s Chili Biltong Spices.
We spent several weeks perfecting this blend and we are really excited about the result. This is the opportunity you have been waiting for to experiment a little with different flavors and spices. Your taste buds will thank you!
Our goal with this blend was to develop a chili spice blend with BIG flavor, over a blend that just has heat. Let’s face it, anyone can spice their beef with just chili powder to make it hot, but it would have no flavor, which will only leave you reaching for water or something to soothe your taste buds.
Don’t get me wrong, this spice blend packs a punch, especially the longer you leave it to cure in the spice blend before rinsing it off. If you prefer the BIG flavor I mentioned earlier with moderate heat, then follow my three-hour curing rule. (See my blog post “How to make Biltong“)
What spices are in this blend? Bennie’s Chili Biltong Spices contains the typical Biltong spices salt and coriander. To give it that kick that you like, we added chili powder and cayenne pepper, but for that bold flavor, we added paprika and cumin. Again, it is all about the right ratios. The combination of these spices at the right ratios resulted in a very satisfying spice blend that we are excited about and one that you will come back for again and again.
