Whole Piquin Pepper
Whole Piquin chillies, also known as Pequin or chile pequeno, are small orange Mexican chillies. The oval-shaped chilli is ½ inch long and ¼ inch wide with a smoky, nutty and citrus flavour. This chilli may be small but they certainly pack a punch! With their searing heat, these chillies are 20 times hotter than a jalapeno.
The chillies are commonly used in tomato sauces and marinades for red meats to create depth of flavour. They are great when left to steep in olive or rapeseed oil to make a chilli infused dressing. You could also use the chillies to infuse vinegars like balsamic or apple cider.
