Best substitute for Thai curry chilies?

cheftwo | Aug 16, 2012 03:53 PM

Does anyone have any experience substituting more readily available Latin American chiles for the Thai long red chilies used in curry pastes (prik chee fa in Thai, also called sky-pointing or heaven-pointing chili). Not the small spicy mouseshit ones, the long, dried, not so spicy ones used in red curry, etc...

Was thinking a New Mexico might be close, but wanted to see if anyone had any actual experience... It looks like a cayenne, but I imagine that might be too spicy for this application...
