With a name that means “tree chili” in Spanish, these thin Mexican peppers mature to a vibrant red.

They’re usually sold fresh, dried or powdered and are often used to make chili pepper wreaths.

Add to any dish where you’d like clean, intense heat. We love them in our Vietnamese Chili-Garlic Sauce—just swap them in for the Fresnos—and in our Piri Piri Oil.

Kitchen Notes

Dried chilies require a bit of preparation before use. First of all, dried chilies should be toasted (to heighten their flavor) in a dry skillet over medium heat until glossy, and just beginning to darken, about 5 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, tear the stem off and shake out the seeds. At this point, the chilies can either be ground to powder in a spice grinder or soaked in hot water to soften and puree.
