  • Heat Level: Arbol chilies are known for their fiery heat, ranging between 15,000 to 30,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). This places them in the upper-moderate to high heat range.

This makes them a popular choice for adding both heat and depth to dishes.
  • Texture: The dried arbol chili has a brittle and crisp texture, making it easy to crush or grind into a powder.
