I'm looking for pepper paste in Montreal however, I am specifically not looking for a paste that has too much of other products in it like garlic, tomato, eggplant, fermented soybeans.

Also not looking for too much heat. Thought of harissa at first since it does impart a good amount of pepperyness without other ingredients but heats way too high.

Am not looking for gochujang (too much syrup flavor), sambal oelek (too much heat and garlic), chinese pepper pastes (too much umami, not enough pepperyness for amount of heat).

I had some luck with pindjur and aajvar, but there's too much eggplants, onions, tomatoes and its more a dip than a paste (a horribly slightly bitter dip)/

Was thinking of something more along the lines of massa de pimentao or biber salcasi
