Chile threads are used as a garnish, but can definitely be eaten. Raw they have a grassy flavor, but a quick toasting gives them a smoky dimension and darkens the color. The heat is rather mild.

A few silvers as garnish offers a modern, geometric appearance making a dish more chic. Use a generous handful to offer height and drama – a brilliant nest that takes a dish over the top.
