Pasilla Negro Chile Pepper
Pasilla or “little raisin” is the dried version of the Chilaca Pepper. Pasilla Negros, combined with the Ancho and Guajillo, form the holy trinity of chiles used to prepare the traditional mole sauces.
Pasilla Peppers have mild to medium heat, and a rich earthy flavor finishing to floral overtones. They are traditionally used in Mole sauces, or are excellent served with duck, seafood, lamb, vegetables, as well as in soups, stews, and salsa.

French Vinaigrette$6.50 – $21.00
Traditional French meals are completed by serving a simple salad course, frequently just lettuce or frisee leaves moistened by a very light vinaigrette. Our French Vinaigrette Dressing is authentically based on shallots, milled mustard seed, and French herbs. After mixing (directions below), pour some dressing into the bottom of your salad bowl before adding the dry lettuce. Toss and enjoy. Also makes a wonderful marinade for asparagus, broccoli, or green beans. Bon appetit!
Traditional French dressing or vegetable marinade directions: Mix 2T Blend with 2T water, let stand 5 minutes to rehydrate. Whisk in ½ cup olive oil & 1/4 to 1/3 cup vinegar (typically sherry vinegar, wine vinegar, or our personal favorite, champagne vinegar).
