Ingredients: Pequin Chili.
Description: Pequin translated, means “small” and refers to the tiniest of chilies. Pequin peppers are very hot, almost 10 times hotter than the jalepeno. The flavor is described as citrusy, smoky (if dried with wood smoke), and nutty. Perfect for spicing up stews, soups, salsas, and sauces as well as for pickling and vinegars. The Pequin chili ranks 40,000 to 60,000 in Scoville heat units.
