Chilli Jam Lunch Ideas

We often get asked how to use our chilli jams and in all honesty they are so versatile that they can be used in so many ways. When it comes to quick and tasty lunch ideas, here are some of my favourite ideas of how to use our chilli jams.

Ploughman’s with Fireflame Chilli Jam


Serve Fireflame Chilli Jam with thick granary bread, slices of thick cut ham and wedges of cheddar cheese. I find this gives a lovely mild spicy twist to a classic lunch.

Jalapeño Cheese & Ham Toastie


Who doesn’t love a cheese toastie? I like to take some thick slices of sourdough bread and butter both sides. Then fill with grated cheese and slices of ham before spreading a generous layer of Jalapeño Jam onto one side. Make into a sandwich, then place in non-stick pan over a low-medium heat and fry both sides until the toastie is golden and crispy, and the cheese is melted to your liking.

Fireflame Chilli Quorn Wrap


This is a delicious vegan lunch using our new Fireflame Chilli Jam. Spread the Fireflame Chilli Jam over a wrap and then top with salad and slices of Quorn fillets before rolling. I like to serve some extra Fireflame Chilli Jam on the side for dipping my wrap in to.

Jalapeño and Tomato Soup


This is the perfect winter warmer, and also delicious on a fresh spring day. Swirl some Jalapeño Jam through a rustic tomato soup for a warming kick.

Lemon Drop Chilli Chicken Ciabatta


For a super hot, zingy lunch, this is the sandwich for you. Fill a ciabatta sandwich with chicken, salad leaves and as much Lemon Drop Chilli Jam as your mouth can handle.

I hope this has given you some inspiration for new lunch ideas. We have lots more chilli jam ideas here.

NEW Fireflame Chilli Jam

We’re always excited in the Single Variety Co kitchen to launch new flavours, and this week has been extra exciting as after months of searching, we have finally discovered and developed our new mild chilli jam which launches this week, which is Fireflame Chilli Jam.


As many of you may remember we have had a lot of heartache growing Anaheim chillies and have consequently suffered with being out of stock of our mild chilli jam more often than not. Not wanting to disappoint our mild chilli loving customers, we have been busy searching, trying and finally selecting the best mild chilli to replace the Anaheim Chilli Jam.

The fireflame chilli is vibrant red in colour and has a mild flavour, and gives a subtle, warming spice. It delivers the perfect replacement for the anaheim chilli.


If you’re wondering what to eat the Fireflame Chilli Jam with, then I think it is delicious with an omelette, salmon, cheese or served alongside a couscous dish.
