If you like your food on the smokier side, this is the spice set for you. Chipotle pepper provides a rich smokiness with a low-medium heat. Chile de
àrbol is more subtle in its smokiness (think a nuttiness with smoky undertones) and packs a bigger spice wallop, easily doubling the heat of chipotle peppers. Together they are a smoky duo perfect for BBQ rubs, smoky salsas, and sauces.
