Description

Cascabel is a hidden gem in the Mexican Chilli World!

Cascabel is known as the rattle chilli, the inside is hollow and when dried the cascabel becomes like a rattle, traditionally given to babies to play with.

The cascabel skin is very thin and very tough so requires a good long soak to soften up, I’d advise the chilli is broken up before soaking, maybe chopped into small flakes to help.

The dye from such a thin walled chilli is amazing, a real full deep colour.

Warmer than some other mexican chilli at 5000 SHU
