Chile Pequin Whole Dried Piquin Chili Pepper by El Guapo

Pequin or piquin pepper pronounced [pee/puh-KEEN] is a hot chile pepper commonly used as a spice. Whole Pequin peppers are really hot, often hotter than jalapenos. They have been described to have a light, sweet, citrusy, smoky (if dried with wood smoke), and somewhat nutty flavor. Give Soups, pickling, salsas and sauces a mild volcanic touch with pequin pepper. You can also crush the pequin peppers and sprinkle them on beans, and other latin dishes. The popular Cholula brand hot sauce, lists pequin and arbol peppers among its ingredients.

Tips:To keep the pequin peppers fresher for up to six months or more, make sure to store in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place.

Great for salsa
April 3, 2024
I love this pepper for making salsa. I heat them in a skillet for less than a minute with a clove of garlic. Add cilantro and tablespoon of sweet onion. Salt and pepper to taste and blend. About 7 peppers for mild 12 for medium and 20 for hot. Simple but good.
