How to use?
Blend toasted arbol chillies, garlic, toasted cumin seeds, cider vinegar and salt to make a speedy homemade hot sauce. Or finely chop whole arbol chillies then carefully pour over hot oil so that they become crisp – use in the same way you would chilli oil.
Storage and Preparation
Lightly toast árbol chillies to release their flavour. First, wipe clean and remove their stems. Toast briefly in a dry pan on a medium heat until fragrant, then blend into your favourite hot sauce or salsa recipe. Alternatively, for a more subtle heat, add whole or broken up árbol chillies directly to whatever you’re cooking, removing before eating. Always wash your hands after handling chillies!
Store in a cool and dry place. Avoid exposure to light.
