Closely related to cayenne peppers, De Arbol peppers are bright red, 2-3 inches long and pointed. Thinly fleshed, De Arbol peppers have a searing, acidic heat and are primarily used in powdered form to make sauces, but can also be found in soups and stews. Melissa’s dried peppers, sold under the Don Enrique® label (Melissa’s own line of Latin items), have a more distinctive taste than the same versions sold fresh since the process of drying peppers also brings out their flavor.

Melissa’s Dried Peppers are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose whole, unbroken peppers with deep color and a fresh scent. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place for up to six months or more.

Pepper Temperature Scale: 7-8
