Sichler's Clean Dried Red Chile Pods (1lb.)

Calculated at checkout

Product Description

Our New Mexico grown sun-dried red chile pods are hand-cleaned with stems and most of the seed removed for quick and easy preparation. This one pound package is equivalent to almost two pounds of chile that is has stems, blemishes, and seeds left on.  You lose approximately half the weight of the chile through the chile cleaning process. We recommend that you place the entire bag of chile in the freezer, to keep fresh, until you are ready to make the delicious red chile sauce.  This package will yield approximately 5.5 pints of red "gold" chile sauce depending on its consistency.


Please place the chile pods, that are packaged in a plastic bag, directly into your freezer as soon as you receive it if you don’t plan on making it right away.  If not, please take it out of the plastic bag and place in netted bag or brown bag so that chile can breathe.  This will ensure the chile’s freshness and keep it from getting moldy.

  1. Excellent quality, attention to detail. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2019

    Bought 5lbs last year and was very impressed. Never bitter, still nicely pliable, quality excellent. This years batch was already stemmed and seeded when I got it which was a nice touch. Sauce is bright and silky smooth, with excellent chile taste. You have me sold!

  2. Hot, Fresh and feels like Home! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2019

    Living in San Antonio has removed me from my love of Chile from New Mexico. San Antonio has amazing Culinary Chef's and choices but there is nothing like the home grown Chile and preparation of NM especially Sichler Farms. Sichler brings the tradition in my home with the fresh pods, clean, hot and delish! I have been buying from the owner for many years & she is passionate; spicy herself with the biggest heart and never dissappoints. Sichler is my family and I remain #newmexicotrue <3

  5. BEST CHILI EVER!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jul 2017

    I was born and raised in NM so when I moved I thought I kissed my beloved chili goodbye but then someone told me about Sichlers. Now great, authentic NM chili can come to me. Sichlers has the real deal and customer service is top notch. I highly recommend them.

  7. Sichler's Red is Hot from Minnesota to Sydney 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2017

    For a couple of years running I've shipped Sichler's red pods to an old friend from the South Valley, now living about an hour south of Minneapolis where winters dive way below zero. My friend appreciates this special taste of home not just for the unforgettable flavor and aroma that says family, but for the real heat it brings inside and out as it's prepared and consumed among friends where such meals are considered an exotic surprise. Sichler's chile has also traveled to Sydney Australia, where my daughter's enchiladas have become a rare and unique treat for her "down under" compadres. Knowing how much Sichler's is appreciated across the country and halfway around the world makes me feel lucky that this fine product is available locally, from a family with roots right here and that friendly New Mexico attitude to boot. Thanks for great chile year after year.

  8. Sichler's is the best 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2016

    My family has been buying chili from Sichlers for as long as I can remember. I now live in New York and still order my chili from them. It is well worth the shipping costs as you can always count on it being the best chili money can buy.
