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 (which is about 7-8 on a 1-10 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. Sold in bulk only.

As dried Arbol chile peppers are very light, it can be difficult to properly estimate the volume of peppers by weight. One pound of dried de Arbol peppers is around 2-3 gallons of chilies.
