Here are the descriptions of em from Marx Foods:
Habanero Chiles (Capsicum Annuum) are very hot chiles. Behind the heat is a fruity flavor that makes these chiles a wonderful way to spark up a dish. Habanero chilies are round, oblong and about ¾ inch wide. Consider the habanero to be a 10 on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the hottest). The only hotter chile we offer is the famous ghost chili.
Cascabel chilies (aka rattle chilies, little bell chilies) are mild chilies that are round and have several loose seeds that rattle loudly when the chilies are shaken.
Hubby and I got in the kitchen and played with three of em over the weekend.
Hubby and I had some fun in the kitchen with the next three varieties:
Aji Amarillo (aka yellow chile, Peruvian chile) is the chile most commonly found in Peru. Despite being called the yellow chile, they are actually orange when ready for consumption.
The Aji Amarillo Chile was a perfect addition to Marx Foods Chile-Lime Grilled Corn Recipe
Since it is so dry in Texas right now we didn't want to risk lighting the BBQ pit. Hubby and I switched it up a bit and decided to boil the corn on the stove topping the finished product with the wonderful Aji Amarillo chile lime compound butter.
|De Arbol chile|
The long, thin De Arbol chile has become a symbol of southwestern cuisine. Similar to a cayenne pepper, these chilies are hot, but not overwhelming.
Result- absolute perfection
These Chiles are the perfect compliment to my homemade Hot and Sour Soup. This recipe is super simple and really delicious.
Rachel's Hot and Sour Soup
1 Tbs sesame Oil
chopped Japones chiles (to taste)
Heat oil in pot. Add chopped chiles and saute slightly to flavor the oil.
1 can chicken broth
1 can cooked chicken
|Rachel's Hot and Sour Soup|
1 can bamboo shoots
1/2 c rice vinegar
1/2 c white wine
1 TBS soy sauce
Cook for 15 minutes over low heat.
ADD (while stirring soup)
1 whisked egg
You may thicken with a mixture of corn starch and cool water if you want.
Please make sure to take special care when working with chiles. I wear gloves and am very careful not to touch my hands to my eyes etc while working with peppers to avoid certain irritation.
Hubby and I will be testing out the other three chiles soon. I will post about them when we do. I would absolutely love to try out some of Marx Foods other fantastic ingredients.
