Beyond the Blend: No. 0305 Desert Pepper
You'll go loco over No. 0305, our Southwest-inspired grinder filled with chunks of red and green bell peppers, onion, garlic, coarse sea salt, jalapeno flakes, spices and finished off with a shot of natural tequila flavor.
With bold Southwestern flavors and a kick of heat, this blend is a great pairing with any type of Mexican-inspired dish. The grinder top allows you to choose between a coarse grind (great for seasoning meats or topping enchiladas), or a fine grind (great for seafood, rice and margaritas).

- Shrimp & Seafood
No. 0305 has an oasis of flavors that starts with coarse sea salt, garlic, onion and a balance of heat and savory flavors from:
Green Bell Pepper: These unripened bell peppers have a crunchy and grassier flavor than their red, yellow or orange counterparts. When dried, they're slightly sweeter and add a distinct freshness.
Tequila: Tequila is made by distilling the fermented juices of the blue agave plant. This natural flavoring adds a fruity, earthy flavor to our cantina-inspired blend.
Red Bell Pepper: Red bell peppers are distinctively sweet and are very mild, even when dried. The sweetness helps balance the sharpness of the garlic and black pepper.
Red Pepper: Red pepper flakes come mainly from cayenne peppers and add both heat and flecks of color to your finished dish. Cayenne peppers have a range from 30,000-50,000 Scoville Heat Units.
Jalapeno: Many people think of the jalapeño as a very spicy hot pepper, but in terms of the Scoville scale, the jalapeño is just mild to moderate. It has a Scoville heat unit range of 2,500 to 8,000 SHU, but adds a distinct flavor.
No. 0305 comes in our adjustable grinder cap which can be pulled for a coarse grind or pushed for a finer seasoning texture. Desert Pepper is a great finishing seasoning for tacos, nachos, salads, and more. Our chef recommends grinding it onto a plate and using it to rim your margarita glass in place of standard salt.
The perfect combination of crispy batter and fresh flavor. These Baja-style tacos are filled with crispy beer-battered cod, shredded cabbage and a tangy involves deep-fried white-fleshed fish, crunchy coleslaw, and a tangy salsa verde sauce spiked with our Desert Pepper Tequila Blend.
