So, what is chiles rojos?

Chiles rojos, or "red chiles" in English, are a popular ingredient in Mexican cuisine, known for their vibrant color and spicy flavor. These dried chiles are often used to add depth and heat to sauces, stews, and marinades. Chiles rojos come in a variety of sizes and levels of spiciness, with some varieties like the arbol chile packing a fiery punch, while others like the guajillo chile offer a milder, fruity flavor. When cooking with chiles rojos, it's important to rehydrate them in hot water before use to bring out their full flavor potential.
