Organic Chimichurri Spice Blend Patagonia Provisions

Organic Chimichurri Spice Blend

Patagonia Provisions

Inspired by a gaucho recipe that Patagonia’s founder, Yvon Chouinard, tasted more than 50 years ago, our signature spice blend gets its mellow heat from Organic Aji Molido, our ground red chile from Argentina. Mix it up into a quick chimichurri sauce for grilled vegetables or meats, or use as a dry rub (see “Ways to Eat,” below).

Product Details + Sourcing


  • Our Chimichurri Spice Blend stars aji molido, the ground form of an intensely flavorful Argentinian chile called aji criollo.
  • Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard first tasted chimichurri sauce in 1968, while camping with Argentine gauchos. For years afterward in California, he tried to grow aji criollo so he could replicate the sauce, but the chiles always turned out too spicy.
  • Finally we found an ideal source, on a family farm at 8,200 feet in the rugged Salta province.
  • Our farm partners credit a combo of extreme altitude, dry air, scanty irrigation and limestone soil with giving our aji criollo its deep flavor. The relatively mild climate tempers the chile’s heat.

How to Make

  • Yvon’s favorite chimichurri sauce: In a measuring cup, combine 3 tbsp. spice blend, 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil and ½ tsp. salt. Fill to the 1-cup line with red wine vinegar. Shake in a jar (or an old wine bottle). If it’s too tangy, add ½ tsp. honey; to add brightness, stir in plenty of minced fresh garlic, oregano and/or parsley.
  • Use as a dry rub for vegetables, especially squash and potatoes
