Cascabel chile

Spanish name: Cascabel

Chile cascabel are bright to dark red large round chiles. The name means "rattle" because of the shape and the seeds make a rattling sound when you shake the chile. Cascabels have a slightly nutty flavor and are typically toasted on a comal and added to meat sauces and salsas
