The japones chile is a small, pointed chile that grows to be about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide and it bright red in color. Dried japones chiles are medium hot and good with Asian dishes. Japones chiles are frequently found in spicy Asian and Oriental dishes. They are used in Thai basil curry dishes and hot peanut sauces. Try crushing a few pods and adding them to your next stir fry. They are also great in chile sauces when ground, and add to soups and stews to increase heat levels whole.
Be sure to keep hands away from eyes and other sensitive areas after coming in contact with the chiles. After handling the chiles, wash hands thoroughly with soap and warm water.
