Chile de Arbol

Chile de Arbol

Smokey, Nutty, Slightly Grassy

Size: 1 lb Bag

Chile de árbol is a top choice when it comes to turning up the heat on Mexican salsas, soups, adobos, and more.

Chile de árbol (Spanish for “tree chili”) is the name given to this slender pepper, referring to the long wood-like stem. It is also known by other names, like rat’s tail chile.

Chile de árbol packs some serious heat, coming in at 15,000 to 30,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU) on the Scoville Scale. However, peppers vary greatly in their spiciness. There have even been reports of arbol chiles reaching 65,000 SHU!

For a point of reference, a typical arbol chile is about 3–6 times hotter than your average jalapeño pepper or slightly milder than cayenne pepper.

    How old are these spices?

    We purchase what we need every year right after the spices are harvested. These spices are as fresh as you can get. They are not sitting in a warehouse for multiple years. The oldest spices we carry will be one year old compared to the commodity market which warehouses spices for 10+ years before selling them to you.

    Are these spices certified organic?

    Unfortunately we do not have any certifications at this time but most of our spices are organically grown and all of them are non gmo. Each ingredient can be traced back to its origin. Email for any questions.
