Dried Pequin Chile

A small, extremely hot chile, the Chile Pequin registers a fiery 9 out of 10 on the chile heat scale. This orange and red chile has a light, sweet and somewhat nutty flavor. Easily crushed and sprinkled on beans, salsas, and other Latin dishes, Chile Pequin can also add a mildly volcanic zest to soups, sauces and vinegars.
