    Ingredients

    Dried Thai Chiles

    Thai Chiles are very popular in the cuisine from Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines. While they are most popular in these areas now, they have their origins in South America and Mexico and were later introduced to Asian cultures through Spanish and Portuguese traders. It was not until the 15th century that the hot pepper was introduced to Europe by the Spanish as a replacement for pricey black peppercorns.

    A member of the Capsicum annuum family, Thai Chiles are not only full of heat, but long regarded for healing abilities and health boosting properties. Ancient cultures have used the pepper to help with cardiovascular ailments, pain management and digestive issues.
