Dried chilli, whether you call them dried chili peppers, dried chili, chillies, or dried peppers, are the stuff of magic. They provide a cornucopia of flavor profiles, from earthy, floral, fruity, and hot, to smoky and sweet. Professional and home chefs rely on a combination of the vast array of flavors with the heat range that chile peppers deliver. Sweeter, milder chiles often carry deeper flavors in their profile, while hotter peppers tend to have flavors that are delicate and floral. That is not written in stone, though, as peppers are bewitching things that can have different, subtle heat and flavor differences from one plant to another in the same field from where they grow. The heat of chiles is generally found in the seeds and the white membranous fibers that line their insides, which can be removed to lower the overall heat of any given pepper. It won’t eliminate the heat entirely, though—a habanero or Carolina Reaper will still be hot, no matter how thoroughly you de-seed it—so make sure that a chile pepper has the heat level range that you’re interested in working with when making your selections.
Chiles are the ultimate world travelers, and display an incredible willingness to adapt to new environments as they acclimate to them. There are more than 3,000 known varieties of chiles in the world today, and they all evolved out a common ancestor that originated in South America’s Andes Mountain roughly 10,000 years ago. Progenitor peppers were carried up through the Amazon and the Orinoco Rivers, eventually making their way up into Mexico and then out to the Antilles and through the Caribbean. They were picked up there and taken back to Europe, transplanted to India, China and Southeast Asia and eventually brought back to the Americas. Along the way they have been incorporated into the cuisines of the cultures they encountered and have been shaped by human intervention and environmental impact. Today their popularity is global, and they can be found in foods from the United States to Australia and all points in between.

V. How to use or prepare
Step 1 of 4
Soak dried chillies in room temperature water until they soften. Rinse well. Tip: To make the dish less spicy, boil the dried chillies with a splash of vinegar and some salt instead of soaking them until soft. Then, remove the seeds and membranes of the dried chillies. Use rubber gloves when handling the dried chillies.
Step 2 of 4
When processing a large number of dried chillies for example, when cooking sambal, you do not need to soak the chillies. Boil them in a pot of water and a splash of vinegar or a piece of tamarind slice. Discard water and rinse chillies after boiling for 3-5 minutes. Optionally, boil the chillies again if the chillies are too spicy. Use a pair of scissors to roughly cut the dried chillies to remove the seeds.
Step 3 of 4
Using a strainer with bigger holes, scoop out the boiled dried chillies. The seeds will sink to the bottom of the pot.
Step 4 of 4
Place the strainer/colander of boiled dried chillies in another bowl of clean water to further remove excess seeds.
