I can honestly say that it was the tastiest fajita flavouring I've ever had, including eating out! I'm so happy I discovered these in Sainsbury's!

Capsicana Story Map
Capsicana Story Map

The Capsicana story started after I spent time travelling the Americas with my Dad. I discovered that chillies are not just about heat or simply red and green; but in fact, can be sweet, earthy and fruity and when married with herbs like coriander, thyme, oregano, basil, garlic and paprika can create incredible, flavourful combinations. So... I quit my office job in London and began importing dried and smoked chillies from Mexico and selling them on a market stall in Hitchin- This was the start of Capsicana! I began to devour Latin American cookbooks, met with top chefs and local cooks and discovered authentic regional recipes, unique flavour combinations and the best ingredients to use to create a premium authentic Latin American range of flavours for everyday cooking.
