Carmencita Dry Ñora Peppers
Spanish Dried Peppers. Ñora peppers, also known as choricero peppers, are small, round, intensely flavored peppers that are traditionally used in Spanish cuisine to flavor soups, stews, and cocidos. In Spain, they are much more commonly used than chili peppers. No “chilindron” chili stew or bacalao a la vizcaina (a Basque codfish stew) would complete without these meaty, dried peppers. And Spanish dishes aren’t the only ones that become more lively with these peppers – try adding these to your chili, soups, and stews and taste the difference!
To use these, you’ll want to remove the seeds and stem. You’ll want to discard the “skin” portion and use the softer, fleshy part when cooking.
