Chiles de Árbol

15,000-30,000 Scoville units

Spanish for "tree chili," the Árbol chili is a small, ultra-potent pepper that resembles a serrano, only even slimmer. The pepper, which grows to be no more than two or three inches long, starts out green, then ripens to red, with a hairpin-thin stem. Chiles de árbol may be used fresh or ground into a powder; when dried, they are often put to decorative use as well.
