Colorado's Flatiron Pepper Company ignites the spice world

(Colorado) Some of the best ideas start with pizza.

Several years ago, two friends were enjoying slices at a local pizza joint when a conversation began about red pepper flakes. Why was the generic pizza condiment so flavorless? Where was the kick?

A lunch discussion sparked an idea that evolved into a business plan, and in 2017, Matt & Mike founded Flatiron Pepper Company.

The Colorado-based company makes spicy pepper blends of chili flakes with no added salt, sugar, or other fillers. The custom blends add a flavorful kick to any dish and are great additions to pizza, macaroni & cheese, grilled meats, soups, and stir-fry.

The original "Four Pepper Blend," made with Arbol, Habanero, Jalepeño, and Ghost peppers, has a fresh, bold flavor with a manageable kick for those who prefer just a touch of heat. It is a delicious addition to pizza!

One of the more popular blends is "Dark and Smoky," a rich, smoky profile with medium heat that pairs perfectly with tacos. You can elevate any meal with a dash or two of this local spice.

There are pepper blends for every taste, from "Sweet Heat" to "I Can't Feel My Face." Once you try Flatiron Pepper products, there is no going back to generic. Don't settle for the ordinary when you can have extraordinary.

Find products online or in stores nationwide. It is a spicy Colorado gem.
