Chile Pequin Seco (100 g)
Pequin Chiles are a common ingredient in liquid hot pepper seasonings and with their rich flavor, they add a fiery zest to beans, sauces, soups, and stews. Easily crush the dried chiles and sprinkle on bean and rice dishes, homemade salsas, and any number of Latin dishes in need of some spicy, tangy flavor.
Pequin peppers are very hot, often 5–8 times hotter than jalapeños on the Scoville scale (30,000 to 60,000 Units). The flavor is described as citrusy, smoky (if dried with wood smoke), and nutty.
