Japones chilies get their name from the Spanish word for Japanese. They are somewhat similar in appearance to dried de arbol chilies but have thicker skins and can be a little bit hotter on average. They are most commonly found in spicy Thai and Chinese dishes.
Store japones peppers in an air-tight container in a cool, dark cupboard.
Japones will retain their flavor for at least a year, but likely much longer.
