Store de arbol chili peppers in an air-tight container in a cool, dark cupboard.
Shelf Life: De arbol chilies will retain their potency for at least a year, but likely much longer.
Reconstitute de arbol chilies and add to soups, sauces, and other dishes. Chop them up, toast them (optional) slightly and add them still dried. Take the tops off and grind them into chili powder using a spice grinder or blender for use as is or as part of your own spice blends. De Arbol chilies are great for use in many Mexican dishes and salsas.
