The cascabel chile (little bell), also known as the rattle chile, is also known by the chile bola. Cascabels are moderately hot and have a nutty flavor and slightly sweet smoky flavor. Cascabel chili peppers are 4 on a heat scale of 1-10, with a heat rating of 1,250 to 2,500 scoville units.
The Cascabel is sometimes confused with the Catarina chile (their seeds also rattle when the chile is dried)
Oh my goodness!!! Such a great cjili. I bought it, I tried it, I love it. Bobby Flay mentioned that he likes to use the Cascabels. So I tried them. I made the best Chile with them. They are mildly hot, smokey, and nutty in flavor. Just an all-around excellent Chile.
