The McIlhenny Company is proud to introduce TABASCO® brand Chipotle Spray Dry Flavoring, a full-bodied flavor enhancer that delivers the popular, smoky taste of TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce in a convenient dry format. 

Artisanally crafted from smoked red jalapeño peppers, distilled vinegar and a blend of spices, TABASCO® Chipotle Spray Dry adds balanced flavor to a wide variety of applications—without adding moisture. 

The chipotle pepper has a long history of flavor that dates back to ancient Aztecs, who passed the unique process of smoking sun-ripened red jalapeño peppers down through generations. Today, McIlhenny Company follows the Aztecs’ traditional smoking process, letting the peppers slow-dry in “chipotleras” (or pits) over fires fueled by locally harvested pecan wood. From there, TABASCO® Chipotle Pepper Sauce is created and then spray-dried into a fine powder.

Chipotle Spray Dry can be used to elevate flavor in a variety of applications, including sauces, soups, dressings, marinades and beverages, as well as to compliment the natural smokiness of chocolate. Ideal for Latin-inspired cuisine, Chipotle Spray Dry first delivers the flavors of slow-smoked red jalapeños with hints of onion, garlic and a subtle sweetness, then follows with a perfectly-balanced complex heat. 

The innovative Chipotle Spray Dry format helps food formulators deliver the authentic taste of TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce without shipping or storing unnecessary moisture. Featuring fine flavor particles with a smooth, refined consistency, Chipotle Spray Dry is an easy-to-use powder with superior dispersion. The heat level registers at approximately 2,500–5,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Depending on the application, McIlhenny Company recommends a use level between 0.5% and 20.0% to achieve your desired flavor profile. And like all TABASCO® Industrial Ingredients, Chipotle Spray Dry Flavoring is gluten-free, fat free, low sodium and halal certified. 

Whether the goal is to add excitement to seasoning blends, enhance beverage ideas or spice up sweets, the on-trend flavor of TABASCO® brand Chipotle Spray Dry Flavoring appeals to adventurous palates everywhere. As the newest addition to the TABASCO® Industrial Ingredients portfolio, Chipotle Spray Dry follows the successful launch of the TABASCO® brand Original Red Spray Dry Flavoring in 2015, which features the signature taste of three-year-aged TABASCO® brand Original Red Sauce in the same convenient dry format.
