Chile Cascabel | 50g


Cascabels are round, plump, and smooth chiles that ripen from green to red. When dried, they develop a deep reddish-brown skin that holds its shape. Woodsy, acidic, and slightly smoky with tobacco and nutty undertones.

Great in salsas, sauces and marinades. They are the prime chile in the classic sauce for Chilaquiles, The slightly earthy quality of the chiles balances well against the bright flavours of cilantro and lime. Cascabel chiles are also very versatile in the ground or powdered form. They may be added to sauces, soups, relishes, salsas, and stews for an added layer of complex heat.

Heat scale: 1,500 – 2,500 SHU
