Japones chilies get their name from the Spanish word for Japanese. They are somewhat similar in appearance to dried de arbol chilies
but have thicker skins and can be a little bit hotter on average. They
are most commonly found in spicy Thai and Chinese dishes.
*Kosher: 1, 2 and 5 lb sizes are marked kosher. Smaller packages are not currently marked kosher (but are certified).
Scoville Heat Rating:
Shelf Life: Japones chilies will retain their potency for at least a year, but likely much longer.
Dried japones peppers can be ground into chili powder or reconstituted in boiling water. Use them to add considerable heat to soups, salsas, braises and sauces.
