California chiles are dried Anaheim chiles.  They are named Anaheim because there used to be chile processing plant in the city of Anaheim. They are similar to New Mexico chiles which are also dried Anahmeim chiles but the red New Mexico chiles are a little hotter.  One thing to note is that the name Anaheim usually refers to the fresh, green chile, not the dried form.
 
California chiles make a wonderful simple sauce for tacos or enchiladas or blend them with other chiles to make a mole sauce for grilled or simmered meats. 
 
These chiles have thin skins and like almost all chiles the flavor will be enhanced if you toast them lightly on a comal or cast iron pan before using them in your recipe. 
 
Packaging: 8 ounces (approximately 28 chiles).
