Puya Chili Peppers - Dried, Whole - Mexico
Fruity and hot, the Puya is a Mexican pepper of Central American origin that ranks about medium in heat – about the same as a Japaleno - but rather than spiciness, the Puya’s distinguished characteristic is that bright fruity, cherry-like flavor that instantly livens up a dish. It’s very similar in size and appearance to the Guajillo pepper, another popular Mexican chile used for mole, but it doubles it in the heat index.
Use Puya Peppers to create spicy sauces with a hint of fruit. Puya is essential for mole, great for chutneys and salsas, and delicious topping pizza, tacos or burritos. Try pureeing it or mashing it first, then adding to the preparation, like chillis, soups and even use it to enhance beef, fish and poultry dishes.
