This small oval shaped chile is sometimes called “birds eye” and grows wild in Mexico and South Texas. Like most tiny chiles, this pepper packs a punch rating at 8-9 on a scale of 1-10. Underneath that heat is a sweet, citrus like flavor.

The #1 factor that contributes to a chile's heat level is its maturity. While capsaicin is present at the beginning of the fruit's development, the amount of capsaicin increases as the chile matures. - Chile Today.com

Try using the pequin chile to make a great Pasta Diablo or to spice up seafood dishes. This chile will fire up chili, salsa, stews and sauces. Remember—a little goes a long way!

Pequins grow wild in Mexico and South Texas.
"I love Savory spices. We have had to drastically alter our family diet due to health issues and Savory has helped in this endeavor. I am trying even more spices and recipes than before and everything has been delicious, in part to your awesome spices. Love, love, love them."
