Chile de Arbol Peppers are beautiful little red chilies whose name comes from the woody stem attached to its pod. They have a bright clean heat that’s great for enhancing other flavors in a recipe.
These chiles are believed to be derived from the cayenne pepper and like cayenne are quite hot – they clock in at 50,000-65,000 on the scoville heat unit scale. Their nice red color and brightness makes these peppers great for craft work such as making chile wreaths or ristas. Increase any dish’s heat by throwing a few pods in while cooking. Great in chili, hot sauce, salsa, tacos, stir fry, Thai curry and soups
