Cascabel means rattle, a name that derives from the seeds rattling inside when the pepper is shaken. Cascabels are medium hot and fruity with a dried cherry fragrance. To prepare, wash, remove stem and seeds, toast very lightly (over-roasting will burn the chile and make it bitter) by tossing in a dry skillet until slightly puffed, then soak in hot water for about 20 minutes. Use in soups, sauces, stews, etc.
