Chile de Arbol Sauce
The Chile de Arbol is a small, potent Mexican chili pepper that grows 5 to 7.5 cm long and is .65 to 1 cm in diameter. It starts out green and turns a bright red color as it matures. It is also known as ‘tree chili’, a Spanish name that refers to the woody stem of the pepper. Other nicknames include bird’s beak or rat’s tail chile.

"Chile de Arbol Sauce is the only thing I can blend up and use as a chili base without my husband complaining. He hate onions, celery and carrots. If he sees a small piece of vegetation in any meal, he will stop eating it. The same goes for chips and salsa. He will only eat it if it's pureed.
I buy this large container of Chile de Arbol Sauce and throw it in my blender until it's beyond liquefied. Works so well for chili, tacos and anything else that needs a tomato base with a zip!"
"Chile de Arbol Sauce is not as yummy as homemade, but pretty close, and quite better than alternatives I tried.
All ingredients are natural, with NO added sugar.
The taste is ideal, and it is actually chunky.
It survives in the fridge after opening for at least 3 weeks (That's how long it's been since I opened it, and I can't taste any difference compared to when I first opened it).
If I got to choose, I'd have preferred it less salty and hotter, then again, without all that salt it's fridge-life would've been far less than it currently is."
All and all, it's still a pretty good salsa and I like the chunky better than the regular. I know from other products it will preserve well. The nice part is this size means we won't run out quickly. Also, the larger plastic bottle with the handle will serve nicely for a dog food scoop or to hold homemade dressing when I make it.
