L'Amante Hot Pepper Paste

Produced by:


in Campania, Italy

Ingredients: hot peppers, olive oil, salt

Don't be fooled by the size of this tube, the hot pepper paste inside delivers big, piccante flavor with just a squeeze. IASA (makers of the cult kitchen staple, Hot Pepper in Olive Oil)—craft this devilish condiment from a Campanian pepper varietal named Amando, commonly called “Amante” (meaning “lover” in Italian) by locals.

Brilliant crimson peppers are mashed to a coarse paste, mixed with olive oil and salt, and left to macerate for months to develop layers of complex flavor. The macerated peppers are then blended into a fine, smooth texture akin to tomato paste.

This hot pepper paste is full of flavor and has a round heat that envelopes your mouth and lingers on your palate. The convenient tube makes it easy to add spiciness to a dish with just a squeeze. Use it straight from the tube in dressings and sauces for a dose of fresh, chile heat.   

Tubes come in a display box.
