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.  This medium hot chile is essential for Japanese, Sichuan and Hunan dishes, where they can be used whole, toasted, chopped, pureed or ground.  With a heat similar to Serrano or cayenne, this is an excellent choice for kicking up the heat on a dish!
