The pequin pepper has a unique and very fine taste with a paprika-like flavour with citrusy and nutty hints. Piquin chilli peppers are very hot and can be used in salsa, soups, stews and meat dishes. It is the perfect spice for everyday use.
Scoville Scale - 100,000 units- Hot heat
Piquin chillies are tiny, red, Mexican chillies which bring a fiery heat to dishes. One of the smallest chillies, piquin chillies are less than one inch long - but are around twenty times hotter than jalapeño measuring 100,000 to 140,000 on the Scoville Scale of chilli heat.
Piquin chillies have a citrus spiciness, and bitter chocolate notes. They add heat and depth to tomato sauces and red meat marinades - their size and strength also make them a good ingredient for infusing oils and vinegars.
Toast briefly in a hot pan to release flavour before using.
