Also known as guajones, coras chile bola, and rattle chile, these Cascabel chili peppers look as delicious as they taste!

Cascabel pepper plants grow around 3 ft. tall and produce high yields. These tiny peppers grow to about an inch to an inch and a half and have a unique flavor profile. Cascabel means “little bell” or “rattle” in Spanish, which means the seeds inside rattle when you shake the pod. They ripen from green to red, and when you dry them, they darken into various colors: brown, red, orange, and even metallic copper.

The Cascabel chili's flavor profile is earthy, woodsy, nutty, acidic, and slightly smoky with tobacco and nutty undertones. These peppers are commonly used for soups, tacos, stews, salsas, and marinades. Try using dried Cascabel chiles for that extra flavor, or to make Cascabel chili powder!

Cascabel pepper scam

Pepper Joes was quick to process order and deliver seeds ordered. The problem is that the Cascabel seeds ordered are not as advertised. They are not Cascabel peppers at all, but rather Cascabella peppers. I was so hoping I had found a source of the authentic Cascabel, but not so. Very dissatisfied customer!
