EHL Ingredients’ spice blends tap into Mexican food trend

mexican1220EHL Ingredients has added two new Mexican spice blends to its portfolio, tapping into the burgeoning market for the Central American cuisine.

The first is a fiery Mexican marinade, described as a spicy mix of Mexican ancho chillies, cumin, oregano and garlic that creates plenty of heat while retaining savoury flavours to perfectly complement the meats and vegetables used in Mexican dishes. The marinade takes just ten minutes to prepare and gives chicken wings and pork belly strips a simple and strong flavour for consumers looking for a hot and spicy dish, the British company said.

The second blend is a sweet chipotle and lime burger seasoning, with a medium heat that is balanced with spice, tangy lime and subtle sweetness to pack a powerful Mexican punch in traditional burger recipes.

The pair have been introduced after growth in the popularity of Mexican cuisine, which has become the most commonly experimented with food culture in UK homes.

EHL Ingredients sales director Christine Peers said: “Mexican food continues to be popular in the UK within the restaurant and casual dining sectors, in takeaway, in retail ready meals and kits as well as in at-home cooking. Sales of our existing Mexican blends are increasing as well as single spices and chillies of various strengths so we wanted to offer food manufacturers an extra hot blend as well as burger seasoning to tap into consumer trends and demand.

“The Mexican food market is highly competitive within both the retail and foodservice sectors. We understand that manufacturers have to work hard to create successful products and innovate to maintain customer interest. We work with many leading companies to provide our natural herbs, spices and seasonings and can even work with product development teams to develop custom blends or organic varieties of any of our Mexican seasonings, depending on heat strength and taste requirements. We pride ourselves on offering unique spice blends and seasonings and our established Mexican varieties have proven popular and successful year on year.

“Our herbs, spices, marinades and seasonings are all sourced from reliable and approved Mexican suppliers, bringing authentic flavours to dishes and meals for foodservice outlets and supermarket shelves.”
