Authentic Mexican flavor starts with very good ingredients, and these dried peppers are the best of the best. Choose from a mild assortment or a hot assortment.

Mild: These are best for sauces served over or alongside dishes, such as enchiladas. They're often referred to as “chile de color” -- meaning they are for color, not so much for heat. Rest assured they have plenty of flavor, but the spice level isn't over the top.

  • Made in: Mexico
  • Made of: Chile ancho, chile guajillo, chile pasilla, and chile mulato.
  • Size: 2 ounces each

Hot: These peppers are searingly hot -- use them specifically for salsas served on the side of a meal. Add tomatoes to dial down the heat a notch if you like. The chile de arbol can be lightly fried or toasted (about 30-45 seconds) before making a salsa to give it richer, fuller-bodied flavor.

  • Made in: Mexico
  • Made of: Chile habanero, chile pequin, chile chipotle morita, and chile de arbol.
  • Size: 2 ounces each
