    Are the chiles de arbol fresh or dried? I could only find dried ones.
    We enjoy your tv programs. Gracias!

    Love your shows Pati! Quick question, are you using dried chiles for this salsa, and if so, do we need to rehydrate them before pureeing? Thank you!

    I love your show and your recipes Pati! Quick question on this one, are you using fresh chiles or dried? If I cannot get fresh, do I need to soften the dried ones in hot water before pureeing? Thank!
