Recipe for Chilean Pickled Golden Chili


  • 12 green crystal chilies
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Cold boiled water
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Wash the chilies thoroughly in cold water and carefully pierce them with a fork without breaking them. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, add 2 liters of water and bring to a boil. Immerse the chilies, pressing gently to ensure the liquid floods them through the perforations, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, remove the chilies from the boiling water, cool, and drain until all the water inside them is released. Set aside.
  3. Prepare clean and sterilized jars and distribute the chilies inside them, without pressing too hard, adding the unpeeled garlic clove, bay leaves, salt, and pepper in an alternating manner.
  4. In a bowl, mix 3 parts of cold boiled water with 1 part of white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar as needed. Pour into the jar to cover the chilies, seal, and store in a cool place for at least 1 month, where slowly, over the days, they will begin to acquire a bright yellow color.
  5. Serve the pickled golden chilies alone or as an accompaniment to any typical Chilean dish, main dishes, or salads.
