The slender, mahogany-red colored peppers don’t look like much. Try a bite and you’ll be shocked by how quick on the draw they are with their spice. These skinny guys are hot as hell. Instead of a sharp stinging heat, expect a glowing burn that’ll persistently linger for while as it throbs on your tongue.

Stick your nose in a container of puyas and you’ll find it smells like the desert on a triple digit day – dusty, dry, and pungent. The flavor tastes a bit of a young cherry – sweet and slightly tart. To best extract the flavor use the water the chile reconstituted in as the chile’s heat may quickly overtake its own flavor.
