Pequin chiles are tiny hot Mexican chiles about the size and shape of a raisin. But don’t let their small stature fool you – these guys are hot!
They have a nice, citrusy sweetness under all the heat and are great for salsas, texas chilis, soups, and anywhere you want to really heat things up. They’re also great for pickling and making spicy vinegars and sauces.
Heat level: 8 out of 10
