While not as popular as some of the other Mexican chiles the de Arbol is rarely found fresh. As a whole chile it is about 3" in length, bright red, curved, thin a bit pointed and it has a smooth skin. Many believe that it is related to the cayenne chile and others believe it is related to the Pequin.

The de arbol pepper is considered a hot chile and comes in at 15,000 - 30,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units). As a comparison the Chipotle "Morita" (considered amedium heat chile) comes in at a 5,000 -10,000 SHU and the Habanero (considered a crazy hot chile) come in at 150,000 - 325,000 SHU). As with practically all but the mildest chiles it should be handled properly during preparation as the oil in the arbol chile is extremely irritating to the eyes or any small cuts on the hands.

De Arbol chiles are popular in Mexican cuisine due to their bold heat and subtle, smoky flavor. Used frequently in salsas, they are also commonly added to soups, stews, tacos, stir fries and can also be found as a table sauce. Many competition chili chefs find the flavor of the de Arbol peppers to be superior to other chile peppers. We like to use these in place of cayenne chile powder as the de Arbol while being similar in heat has more flavor.

De Arbol chiles have a natural, grassy flavor with a hint of nuttiness. The flavor of De Arbol chile is considered superior to other chile peppers by many competition chili chefs and is considered a staple chile in many southwestern US kitchens.

In addition to the de Arbol powder we also carry a full selection chiles and hot peppers and our Mexican Chiles including Ancho, Chipotle, Cascabel, Guajillo, Habanero, Pasilla and Serrano.

would buy again, excellent I ordered the chef size. I felt it was a good value, the package was completely filled and densely packed. The quality was top notch. Powdered chile combined with salt and vinegar is my seasoning for meat. Nice flavor, good heat. In all everything went great with the order, thanks

Powdered chile de arbol As a home cook devoted to Mexican specialties (like moles), I am rather embarrassed to admit I had no familiarity with chile de arbol. The tiny chile transformed my standard refried black beans recipe and I now use powdered chile de arbol as a substitute for the notoriously unsubtle powdered cayenne. Powdered chile de arbol offers a refreshingly different "hot chile profile" that people go out of their way to comment on, asking questions about that 'pleasant kick' in the background of beans, salsas, tomato sauces (pizza sauces!). Now, instead of a few dashes of my favorite hot sauces (or the dreaded cayenne), I turn to a half teaspoon of powdered chile de arbol. Outstanding!

The Best Chile de Arbol powder ever I do lots of Mexican Food and Chile Arbol is what makes real Mexican food what it is , what makes it great, . That orange color coming out of the best Mexican Food you eat is Chile Arbol,. I have tried every brand of it. I have been cooking Mexican Food most of my 62 years and the the Arbol I got from you the first time is by far the freshest and most flavorful I have ever cooked with.I just got my second order from Spices INC and I would never ever use another brand again. I have no idea what you do to make your powder so much better than any others but it truly is
