Cool Chile - Chile Cascabel

Chile Cascabel is a medium-hot dried chilli.

Glossy, round cascabel chillies are named for the rattling sound their seeds make. Toasting brings out this chilli’s earthy, acidic, well-rounded flavour, which makes wonderful salsas and sauces

    Chile Cascabel 100%

  • Preparation

    Lightly toast then rehydrate cascabel chillies to release their flavour. Wipe clean and remove stems and seeds. Open out flat and toast briefly in a dry pan on a medium heat until fragrant, then soak in just boiled water for 15 minutes. Drain and blend to a paste with a splash of water, then strain through a sieve before using. Alternatively, run a teaspoon inside the soaked cascabel chillies to remove the flesh, and discard the skin. Always wash your hands after handling chillies!

    Keep in a cool dry place for storage.
