Chile de Arbol are a favorite in Mexican cuisine because of their bold heat and subtle, natural smoky flavor. They originated in Chihuahua, Mexico and dry well with good red color for use as wreaths or other decorative items. Fresh pods can be pureed to make a sauce for chips or to season the pork filling for tamales. When left whole, they can add great flavor to oils and vinegar.
