El Guapo Whole Pequin Chili Peppers (Chile Pequin Entero), 0.25 oz
Pequin Chile (Chile Pequin) is small, but packs a lot of heat – about similar to a cayenne pepper. These bright-orange chiles are native to Mexico, where they are used fresh, pickled or dried whole and crushed into flakes. From the Spanish word “pequeño,” meaning “little,” Pequin chiles are very small, just 2-4 centimeters in length, with an oval shape. Sweet and fruity in flavor with spicy-smoky heat, they are ideal for hot sauces, salsas, flavored oils and vinegars, or any dish where you want extra heat. One of the many dried chiles offered by El Guapo, you can be confident that our products are of the highest quality. For the past 30 years, El Guapo has provided ingredients to make delicious, authentic Mexican meals for your family.
