Chile de Arbol

From Spanish for 'tree-like' in reference to the way the plant branches as it grows, this small, bright red pepper is an icon of Mexican culture. These peppers are dried in decorative garlands called ristras. Essential in Thai curries and delicious in salsa verde, these peppers mature from green to red and retain their bright color when dried.

Chiles de Arbol means "tree chili" in Spanish. Other names for this pepper include bird's beak chilies or rat's tail chilies. The Chile de Arbol is a small, thin Mexican pepper that has a smoky grassy characteristic with an acidic heat, that is about 6 times hotter than a jalapeño pepper. On the Scoville scale, these range from 15,000 to 30,000 heat units. They are a wonderful addition to salsas, pickling brines, Tex-Mex chili, or homemade hot sauces. Ingredients: Arbol chiles.

Bad batch

I have been ordering these for years and they are normally good quality. The last batch I received are a sorry excuse for Chile de Arbol, crushed pale and wrinkled

Terrific, but toasting them till a Carmel color makes them amazing

I grew up with these chilies, and ate some salsa with them. When you toast these chillies till almost burnt, the heat is much less and the flavor is much more complex. The flavor without toasting it too much of a single note of spice. We add about 8 toasted chili de arbol, I can of tomato sauce, one garlic glove, and a tablespoon of chicken Knoor bullion. Blend everything in a blender and be happy.

Great if you don't have fresh

These are great tasting chiles jam packed with flavor! I bought these because I have so many recipes that I love but don't have access to fresh chiles. No problem, just soak these in hot water for a half hour and you're good to go! Tastes like fresh. Love it.

I didnt know a single caricature means each use is by one as racist and insensitive as someone (o...

I support Blackbeard being the logo. Anyone with any knowledge of the history of the Americas knows deep down, there were a dozen scores of worse, truly evil people. Instead of being offended about a logo on a company selling our chilies, maybe focus that energy on teaching your children about history. Including the fact that there are a lot more bad people in history than the ones remembered and commemorated in history. I have never read a more woe-is-me comment than the lady that insisted the change of a logo. History is just that-History. Now if so referenced lady could put this company out of business, then so be it. I doubt it.

Keep doing what you all are doing. Keyboard warriors are nobodies.

No one condones the racists from the past. Those who judge the past in todays metrics are the real problem. Lady.

Keep the pirate logo.

{note: i did not call out the racist, insensitive but also holier-than-thou comment that provoked this response. something to say. q dice? Piedras and glass houses. whomever got this insulted to write such an opinion is clearly not Christian. LOL chupame.....}

I support this product. NO CAMBIO!

do not listen to this angry lady. Or i do not support. Do not be bullied. You all have a great product!

Please Don’t Change Your Logo

Don’t give in to the whiny do-nothing complaining about your ‘offensive’ logo. Cancel-culture is destroying America, progressives are the worst!
