Guajillo Chile Pepper
$4.00 – $17.25
The king of Mexican Chiles, Guajillo is the dried version of the mirasol pepper. Guajillos are large, and have a thick, leathery skin that brings with it more of the spicy, peppery flavor of the original fruit than most dried chiles. We stem and partially seed our Guajillos by hand before milling to accentuate the flavorw of the flesh without overpowering heat.
Because of its rich berry flavors, medium heat, and the volcanic terroir of North Central Mexico, Guajillo is used as a base for sauces, as well as ground or made into a paste to flavor meats, primarily chicken. Guajillo is one of the “holy trinity” of chiles (Ancho, Pasilla, Guajillo) used for moles and other sauces.
