Piquillo peppers are exclusively cultivated in the Navarra region of Northern Spain and are protected under PDO status. Under strict quality control, the Piquillo variety must meet government-established guidelines during cultivation, harvest and packing. These whole Piquillo peppers are roasted over a direct flame and are cored and peeled by hand before being packed in their own juices to preserve their naturally fruity flavor. Softly smoky, tender with a supple texture, these sweet red peppers are ready to be used straight from the jar.
How to Use
Able to hold their shape well, these peppers are ideal for stuffing with goat cheese, chorizo, or seafood conservas, like in this recipe forSmoky Tuna-Stuffed Piquillo Peppers.
