Dried Chile Tepin Whole Chile Pods - Chiltepin .25 oz

Chile Tepin by Ranchero is one of the hottest and smallest chili peppers. Common names for Chile Tepin include chiltepin, chiltepe, and chiletepin. The Chile Tepin peppers are also nicknamed "bird's eye" peppers, rank high in heat level. Chile enthusiasts argue that Chile Tepin is hotter than the Red Savina habanero or Habanero pepper. Arrebatado (rapid or violent) is what the heat of the Chile Tepin is called in Mexico because, while the heat is intense, it does not last very long. Chile Tepin is similar to Chile Piquin, they are both very popular and eaten either fresh or dried. The hottest part of Chile tepin are the seeds and ribs. By removing some or all of the seeds or ribs will reduce the heat of the chili. Chile Tepin peppers are used as hot pepper seasoning stews, sauces, bean dishes and soups in Hispanic, Indian and Asian Foods. You'll find Chile Tepin is available dried, fresh and in powder form. Chile Tepin will last for up to a week if stored unwrapped in the refrigerator. Avoid storing Chile Tepin in plastic because they will retain moisture and cause them to rot.

Chiltepin Scoville Units SHU - 60,000 - 85,000.

Chile Tepin de Ranchero es uno de los chiles mas pequenos y picantes. Otros nombres por los cuales se le conoce incluyen chiltepin, chiltepe, and chiletepin. Aficionados al chile, argumentan que el Chile Tepin pica mas que los chiles Habanero y habanero Red Savina. Arrebatado (rapido o violento) es como le llaman a la intensidad de lo picoso del Chile Tepin en Mexico, porque asi como pica mucho, lo picoso dura poquito. Chile Tepin es parecido al chile piquin, los dos son muy populares y se comen ya sea seco o fresco. La parte mas picosa del Chile Tepin son las venas y las semillas. El remover las semillas y las venas se reduce lo picoso del Chile Tepin. El Chile Tepin son usados como sazonador de chile para guisados, salsas, platillos con frijoles y sopas en la cocina Hispana, India y Asiatica. El Chile Tepin lo encuentras ya sea seco, fresco o en polvo. Chile Tepin dura hasta una semana si se guarda sin envolver en el refrigerador. Evite guardar Chile Tepin en plastico, pues se guarda la humedad y esto hace que se echen a perder.

Chile Tepin has been used in my family for at least two generations, grind it (3pkgs), mix with a can of tomato sauce + water for 6oz, add a tablespoon of granulated garlic, mix well and believe me everyone will enjoy it. Haven't met anyone who doesn't yet. Remember its "HOT," but the flavor is out of this world.

Dried Venison Sausage
January 28, 2013
My sons and I have over the years fine tuned a recipe for dried venison sausage. This recipe includes 3/4 oz tepin chilis to 60 pounds of pork and venison. These were a lifesaver as our local bushes didn't produce enough for 120 pounds of sausage. Mex Grocer to the rescue. Made sausage last week. It is drying in the smokehaus. The tepin chilis were identical to the ones in South Texas and held that same unique flavor. Thanx again!

We first found these on a trip we took to the Copper Canyon. They are great, and much more flavorful than red chili flakes. I wish the store also carried the iron wood crushing tools that come in various chapes
