The word Cascabel means Rattle in Spanish. The seeds of this chile (Capsicum Annum) separate from the pod and rattle around the inside of the dried chile. Cascabel Chiles are dark reddish brown with a shiny, smooth, thick skin. The skins folds in a bit when dried, but this is not a wrinkled chile. The Cascabel is round and 1-1/2 inches in diameter. This Chile is a 4 on the heat scale. Scoville units 8,000 - 12,000
Cascabel Chiles are medium hot. Use in sauces, stews and soups. It's ideal for adding a hint of heat. The skin does not dissolve easily, so we recommend removing the chilies when the desired hotness is achieved.
