Prized for its heat, the japones chile is used extensively in Asian, Central and South American, and Caribbean cuisines to bring heat without altering the flavor of a dish. Use these flakes to add heat to sauces, marinades, dry rubs and infusions. With a heat similar to Serrano or cayenne, this is an excellent choice for kicking up the heat on a dish!
