The Baklouti chile is from the African Barbary Coast country of Tunisia. A Baklouti chile is about the size of a large New Mexico chile, but with more heat and a bigger flavor and aroma.
Baklouti chile is a main ingredient in Harissa chile paste, which in turn is a main ingredient in north african dishes, such as tagines and couscous dishes.
Our Tunisian Baklouti Chilli Olive Oil is an intensely aromatic and spicy oil that is great for roasts, grains, and savory sauces. We love it drizzled over eggs, potatoes, grilled vegetables and various Mexican dishes, as well as soups, stews, chicken, crock pot meals, couscous and marinades.Pair this spicy-but-versatile oil with these Balsamic Vinegars: Peach, Pineapple, Honey Ginger Raspberry, Black Cherry, Dark Chocolate, or Cinnamon Pear.
