Collection: Chili Pequin Pepper

Pequin peppers, also known as bird peppers or chiltepins, are tiny, fiery chili peppers native to Mexico and the southwestern United States. These peppers measure just 1⁄2 to 1 inch in length and pack a serious punch, with a Scoville rating of 30,000 to 60,000 units. That makes them 3 to 8 times hotter than jalapeños!
Pequin peppers are often used in Mexican cuisine, particularly in the state of Tabasco, where they are prized for their unique flavor and heat. They are also popular in the southwestern United States, where they are used in salsas, hot sauces, and other spicy dishes.
