Chili Pequin


The pequin pepper may be small, but its upper-medium heat (40,000 to 60,000 Scoville heat units) and smoky, fruity flavor go a long way. It shares many similarities with its cousin the chiltepin, and they are often confused as the same thing. But really the pequin is a unique chili all its own, and they can be found in a surprising amount of products, including Cholula, a very popular hot sauce.
