Pequin Chile Flakes

Thanks for contacting us. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Pequin Chile Flakes are made from the small, fiery pequin chiles. These little chile flakes pack big, intense heat and robust flavor. Native to Mexico and the southern United States, these tiny peppers pack a punch, boasting a Scoville rating of 40,000 to 60,000 units.

With their fruity, nutty and slightly smoky taste, Pequin Chile Flakes are prized for adding fiery heat to dishes like salsas, sauces and marinades. Use sparingly - the little Pequin goes a long way.  

Try sprinkling Pequin Chile Flakes into homemade salsa for added heat and depth. Add to store-bought barbecue and marinara sauces for a fun, fiery twist. Mix Pequin Chile Flakes into Grilling & Smoking Blends to create spicy dry rubs. Added to pickling brines, Pequin Chile Flakes bring some heat to pickled vegetables!
