Pequin Chile Peppers - Dried
Pequin chiles are considered hot, with an earthy and citrusy flavor. Use them to add intense heat to hot sauces, soups, and stews. You can also crush them over bean and rice dishes for some extra flavor. When rehydrated and put in the food processor, they make a wonderfully rich nutty puree.
Consider using a chile pepper grinder if you are not rehydrating them first.
