Focal Chili is a dish in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be created in a Cooking Pot or Industrial Cooker.


This food improves your Movement Speed by +25% and Crafting Skill by +100% for 15 minutes (900 seconds).

Eating Focal Chili will temporarily increase your crafting speed and custom recipe quality bonus, but not your blueprint quality bonus.

Be sure to include a Waterskin, Water Jar or Canteen with at least 25% water in the Cooking Pot and use Thatch or Angler Gel as the fuel source. If Wood is used as the fuel source, Charcoal will be created during the cooking process and only Dye will be cooked.

  • Instead of Cooked Meat you can also use the same amount of Cooked Fish Meat.
  • Remember that Crafting Speed does not work on items crafted at a station instead of in your inventory.
  • It is important to note that the 100% bonus is applied to Crafting Speed and Custom Recipe Quality only, not Blueprint Quality.
