Chile, Pequins (Piquin), Whole

Expand Product Info ▼

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!
