Chiles & Paprikas

The De Arbol chile is said to have originated in Mexico. The name “De Arbol” means “tree like” in Spanish and was named that because of its long woody stem. This chile, which is related to the cayenne and pequin, has a rich red color and a thin flesh.

This chile packs a bit of a punch rating around a 6 to 7 on a heat scale of 1 to 10. Behind the heat is a tannic, smoky, slightly earthy flavor. Try using these chiles in salsas, sauces, soups and stews. De Arbol chiles can be used in Chinese, Mexican, Southeast Asian and Southwestern dishes.
