Sure many dried chilies rattle, but none do so quite like the cascabel Mexican pepper. They keep their rounded shape when dried which creates the perfect natural bell or rattle. Cascabel chilies are mild in heat and nutty in flavor, and they look as delicious as they taste.
They have an earthy, nutty flavor that pairs very well with rustic meals. Soups, salsas, and marinades are all common uses. Cascabel is typically ground into pepper flakes or powder for use.
The Cascabel Chile ranks between the 1000 and 3000Â scoville Units
