Product Details + Sourcing
- Our Organic Taco Seasoning Spice Blend stars our Organic Aji Molido, the ground form of an intensely flavorful but mellow chile from Argentina called aji criollo.
- Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard first tasted aji molido while camping with Argentine gauchos in 1968, and tried to grow aji criollo chiles in California for years but they always turned out too spicy. Finally we found an ideal source, on a family farm at 8,200 feet in the rugged Salta province.
- Provisions’ Aji Molido is the first certified organic aji molido in Argentina.
- Our farm partners say the combination of extreme altitude, dry air, scanty irrigation and limestone soil gives our aji criollo its deep flavor. The relatively mild climate tempers the chile’s heat.
