Tepin Chiles are often ground and added to cream sauces and soft cheeses before serving to provide a bold contrast to creamy food. They can also be fermented by soaking them in a saltwater brine for a few days and then blended into a hot sauce.
Chiltepin chiles have a Scoville Heat Unit rating of 50,000-100,000 compared to Jalapenos which measure 2,500-8,000 SHU.
