I enjoy spicy food and this salt is perfect for adding a bit of spice to all sorts of food, potatoes, chicken nuggets, chicken fried steak fingers. I think my favorite is putting this on popcorn. I love spicy popcorn and this has just the right amount of heat. You can put this on anything you’d put salt on. Five full stars!
Just what you need to give a barbecue rub or even a soup or salad that kick. I am not particularly a hot head when it comes to peppers but I do like habanero. It has a vague floral, citrusy overtone that is delicious in light quantities. I tried a grind of this salt over some corn soup that was a bit bland and uninteresting. I just put on a light dusting and it was exactly what the soup needed.
Then I added some to my homemade hummus instead of the cayenne in the recipe, and left out the salt called for. Wow. So incredible.
These peppers have a good flavor as well as decent heat.
So if you like hot peppers and need salt at the same time this is a very convenient seasoning. Comes in a grinder bottle which is exactly what it needs to be applied directly to food.
I was looking for a spicy salt for my husband because he likes to add heat to his food (I do not) and he’s always seeking for a way to spice up my cooking. Because of allergies I can’t add the heat he craves while cooking. This is the answer to our problem. Easy to use and adds the perfect amount of heat for him. He loves the flavor. Good on just about anything.
I love this spicy habanero salt. the perfect amount of heat and saltiness in one grind. I don’t use regular salt anymore. I don’t use black pepper anymore. This Habanero salt is the only thing I need.
This is quite flavorful, and it’s nice to be able to grind just the amount you want. The grinder works well, and the cap helps protect against dust and humidity.
Be aware that it is more spicy-hot than you may be expecting from a habanero product.
I love the idea of mixing Sea Salt with a little bit of spice. The Habanero Salt by African Dream Foods attempts to do that. And it mostly succeeds. The 3.5 oz grinder is hefty and easy to hold. The only gripe I have is the formulation. The contents consist almost entirely of sea salt with very little African Habanero Pepper. They list the ratio as 91% sea salt and 9% African Habanero Chilli. At that ratio, I can barely taste or sense the pepper at all. I would have preferred a ratio of about 20% habanero to sea salt. That way I wouldn’t have to load up on the salt just to experience the habanero. For that reason, I’m giving this product 4 stars.
This is a wonderful habanero salt!
This salt smells wonderful! This salt has some kick to it. Taste it before adding it to your foods. I have had some spicy salts that are barely spicy. This definitely has some spice to it. I can taste the habanero in it. Salty and habanero spicy.
Spice level is a hard one to gauge because use a little and it is a little spicy. Use a lot and it is more spicy. A small grind fills my mouth with a nice heat. Not unbearable but I definitely know it is there.
The salt is Sea salt. This is a product of South Africa. It is 3.5 ounces which is about the common size of most of the grinder salts/peppers I have used.
The grinder works well. Not adjustable but it is a fine grain when I grind the salt.
This isn’t spicy enough for my son who likes Sriracha or ghost pepper sauce on almost everything. That is okay with me because I like it. It is one thing that adds flavor to cottage cheese and scrambled eggs. I like it on hamburgers too. A little of this goes a long way if you want some more kick without adding too much salt.
Definitely, a winner that is worth ordering again.
This is my first time using a flavored salt and I love it. The flavor is great and it has the perfect amount of heat for my taste. My favorite thing to put it on is avocado toast.
With just a shake, you can have salt and spice at the same time. It’s a great, fast way to season fish, chicken, or meat, and add a quick kick to vegetables and casseroles, too.
This is a good addition to anything I would normally add salt. It’s salt with a kick, there’s not a strong flavor outside of salt with some spiciness, but I like it a lot. I’ve been using this on everything that I would put salt on since I got it.
The flavor of the pepper isn’t lost in the heat- that’s what I love best about it. It’s not just salt and heat, but you get that specifically habanero pepper taste too.
I would describe the heat as about a 6.5 out of 10. It’s what I’d call a lower high heat. It’s hot, but it isn’t absolutely overwhelming to someone who likes heat.
The grinder works well and can actually be refilled.
This is great salt for burgers. Put some on my ground beef mix and there was a bit of a kick. I like that it seasons the meat very well. Comes in a glass bottle.
Great quality habanero salt. This has the perfect amount of heat to it and also has an amazing flavor. The grinder works really well and has a cap, don’t forget to unscrew it first to remove the seal. I use this on almost everything now sometimes just one or two grinds to add a little kick. Will definitely be getting more of this!
This is excellent salt. There is just enough heat to flavor beef, chicken, rice, soups, and other dishes. I used this on my chicken and fish it was excellent. I put this stuff on everything
This is excellent salt. There is just enough heat to flavor eggs, chicken, rice, soups, and other dishes. I used this on my chicken and it was excellent.
Smelled weird at first, kind of old and stale? But two or three turns of the grinder into my soup, and what a change! Could taste the pepper, could feel the heat. Completely changed the soup, in a good way. None of the weird scents from the bottle.
Glad that proceeds go to good causes.
We usually use Himalayan Salt, but this was a nice flavorful change. Hubs says it is not so much hot as it is warmly flavorful. He uses it when he cooks eggs in the morning. Easy to open and easy to grind. Good even grind. No complaints or regrets.
I’ve used a couple of different seasonings from African Dream Foods, but I think this is the most versatile. This is a mixture of Habanero peppers and sea salt, so it can be used for so many different things that you want to touch up with a little bit of heat. The peppers aren’t overbearing, but a little will go a long way. Use in place of your regular sea salt to bring the heat. This is an excellent finishing salt or topper for soup!
Habanero Salt is delicious. Adds that kick you need. Awesome on corn on the cob or potatoes.
The aroma is unmistakable and although the habanero is as hot as expected since it is less than 10 percent of the total the heat seems measured—not sinus clearing.
Mini plastic salt grinder containing a 91% to 9% blend of rock salt grains and Habanero chili powder (product of South Africa). The flavor balance hits all the right notes for me as the added chili adds just the right amount of heat to let you know its there – without being crazy hot to the point of ‘no thanks.’ Adds a nice kick to all the usual suspects – salads, eggs, fish, etc
If you like a bit of a kick to your salt, this one is very nice. It is hot, but not overly so, despite the habanero peppers. The grinder works well. For me, the flavor is a bit uneven because sometimes I get more chile flakes in the grind than at other times because they are dispersed through the salt crystals. That is a relatively minor issue. I’ve been keeping this grinder on my table for use at meals so everyone can add their own preferred salt and chile level.
Oh. My. Gosh.
This has very quickly become my new favorite seasoning. If you like Habanero peppers, I am fairly confident you will love this.
This is such a versatile spice because it can be used in so many dishes. So far, I have used it to season my soup and I have also begun begun putting this in my omelets. This adds quite the spicy zing and it is very fresh. It packs a punch so if you are wary of spice, this probably isn’t for you. That being said, I wouldn’t say this sets your tongue on fire either. I would say it falls somewhere between the lines of mild and very spicy.
I like that this comes in the grinder that can be reused when finished. The grinder is easy to use and it even comes with a little lid you can put back on top when you are not using it.
“I like this seasoned salt. It tastes fresh and strong and grinds well.
My only issue is the cap and container appear to be plastic not glass, and I’m trying to avoid anything plastic that comes into contact with my food because plastic particulate WILL get into the food, and from there into your digestive tract.
I’m a bit confused because the packaging has a glass recycle symbol but this appears to be plastic?
If this is glass I would change my review to 5 stars. I’m willing to pay a bit more to get a grinder that’s metal and glass not plastic.
The sea salt in this blend is actually infused with habanero pepper — the salt crystals have a reddish-orange tint with tiny flecks of chili on them, and they are mixed with slightly larger bits of dried chili flakes. The grinder is built into the lid, and there’s a snap on/off cap that keeps the salt fresh and dust-free between uses.
I often find myself reaching for chili powder to add more flavor to basic dishes like mac & cheese. But it had never occurred to me to try a chili-infused salt, so this Habanero Chilli Salt from African Dream Foods was a bit of a revelation for me! It adds a perfect dash of salt and spice to foods where straight chili powder might be a bit much, such as on buttered popcorn, corn on the cob, french fries, etc.
Grinding the chili salt produces a mix of finely ground and slightly coarser bits. I actually like the varied texture of the salt; the finer bits provide good coverage and the coarser bits add a touch of crunch.
A few other points worth mentioning: Each bottle sold supports African wildlife conservation, so every purchase does more good beyond just seasoning your food. As a vegetarian, I appreciate the fact that this product is vegan-friendly.
Overall, I love this African Dreams chili salt and the spicy kick it adds to food. An easy 5 stars for me!
This salt is fantastic! The fruitiness from the habaneros comes through, the heat doesn’t linger as long as a ghost pepper but is just as flavorful. A very happy addition to my chili salt collection.
yummy seasoned salt, great message for the company
I love spicy things that have flavor without being so spicy that I can’t actually tell what I am eating. I love the taste of this salt, it has the right amount of food to add flavor and depth without burning my mouth.
I’m not one to put salt on much of anything but sometimes I do use a little. I’m more of a spice person and do like some heat on or in things. This is an awesome product if you like moderate heat and some salt. I found to have the perfect mix of salt and heat. It didn’t take too much salt to get a nice amount of heat on vegetables or macaroni and cheese. It would probably be perfect for adding a bit of salt and spice to a burger too.
The grinder is reuasable! Unlike all the salt and pepper grinders in most grocery stores and probably online that you have to throw away once they are empty, this one can be refilled! The entire top comes off! You could refill it with salt, pepper or most anything else like that that might work well in a grinder. Big bonus points for that!
This is a great seasoning and a great choice of grinder for it!
