Ingredient Note: To rehydrate, cover chile with hot water for 10 minutes, let stand at room temperature. Drain and use as directed. Seed chile, if desired, to reduce piquancy a bit.

Ingredient Note: Always wear rubber gloves when handling hot chiles.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with red beans, rice, and corn.
