Help me identify tiny beans and chiles purchased in Yucatan!

cathyeats | Jan 9, 201207:00 PM

I was in Valladolid, and went to the Mercato Municipale. Many vendors were selling these tiny little red beans, maybe 1/8" x 1/16". Seriously small, more like a seed than a bean. I bought a bag, plus what the hell are they? Each bean has a small white strip.

Also, I bought some dried chiles and can't figure what those are, either. They're bright red, around 3/4" long and 1/2" wide. I've looked up many varieties and none look like this.

Any ideas?
