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 burnt chili paste, 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.

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.

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.

Why should the conquistadores be representing Chiles which come from our countries in the Americas?

Just recently, my husband and I started using your spices bcof your high quality of spices and bc of the pandemic we stopped shopping at our usual Mexican stores which dont deliver. We are Mexican and we were shocked when we realized your symbol for spices are the very Europeans that killed millions and millions of indigenous people in the Americas.

We would be willing to give a history lesson, but for a start, we would ask you to please erase your symbol and substitute it for anything other than those who destroyed our continent. Thank you.

Hi Laura,

Thank you for your feedback on our chile pepper labels and the etching of Black Beard the pirate. We sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on this matter. We are updating our labels in the new year and will replace this image with something more representative of chile peppers.
