The De Arbol Chile is known for its thin flesh, searing heat and woody stem. Unlike many other chiles, these retain their bright, rich color through the drying process
De Arbol Chiles are known for their long, thin pods and thick woody stems, even contributing to the name of this chile which translates from Spanish to “treelike.” This exceptionally hot pepper is used for its flavor and is also treasured for its bright red color. These peppers are often used for decoration and wreath making to celebrate cultural heritage and vibrancy.
These dried Mexican chiles are equal to cayenne in heat and have a slight red bell pepper flavor. Dried chile de arbol should be lightly toasted and then reconstituted in water for use (or broth, if you are making a soup or stew). Blended with salt, olive oil, parsley, lime zest, garlic, and cilantro it makes for a seductive chimichurri to pair with a grilled steak.
Our Whole De Arbol Chiles are minimally processed between the fields where they are harvested and our warehouse. They are simply dried, Whole De Arbol Chiles ready to be used as soon as the stems are removed.
