There are currently seven products in the range I will be reviewing two. The range:
In fact, each jar holds more than 18 chillis, so a powerful hit from a little cutie.
This is a hot little number and I added half a teaspoon into some tomato puree and spread it on a pizza base. It gave a very nice zingy flavour and very fresh. I also tried it in a chilli con carne, mixed some into hummus and marinated some on a chicken breast before cooking. Each time the quality of the product came through.

The second jar was the Scotch Bonnet Chilli Puree which is a 2015 Great taste award winner. This is hot, a vibrant taste and colour with a lovely fruity flavour. It's heat is immediate. This, again, has endless uses - chilli dips, liven up a cottage pie or spruce up a spaghetti bolognaise.
It's been hard to describe these products because they are just chilli - most of the blogs I do are a product which contains lots of things to make the final product, but I really think Bad Boy Chilli have been very very clever with a market overflowing with great chilli products and sauces - to simply put chilli mashed into a jar is a real stroke of genius.
The website claims you will get 20 plus meals from each jar; as a full on chilli head I would probably stretch to 8 to 10 but a normal person wanting a high quality product without the hassle of buying, chopping and remembering to wash your hands before you visit the little boys/girls room (it hurts believe me) then this is perfect addition - a little goes a long way.
The End Bit
Would I recommend? Yes I would! These pint sized pots pack a lovely punch.
For people not used to chilli, this will help them to realise what a great ingredient chilli is, so I really do think this could help introduce people to a new flavour and to realise that there is nothing to be scared about.
A big thank you to Bad Boy Chilli for sending me these two pots to try - please note this has in no way influenced my blog, if i didn't like them I would say so.
