Guajillo Chile Peppers, Whole or Ground

Guajillo chile peppers are very common to Mexican cooking. To quote our local chile expert, Rick Bayless, "These are workhorse chiles with a lot of dazzle."

Along with anchos, they're the most commonly used chiles in Mexico. What the anchos are to 'deep' and 'rich', guajillos are to 'spicy' and 'dynamic'... a puree of toasted, rehydrated guajillo sings with a chorus of bright flavors that combine spiciness, tanginess (like cranberry), a slight smokiness and the warm flavor of a ripe, juicy, sweet tomato; the flavors go on and on.

Please note: because the whole chilies are dried in the field, you do need to wash them well before using them.

We also offer powdered guajillo peppers. Ground to a fine, floury texture, this powder is a wonderfully easy way to add chile flavor to sauces, rubs, stews, or anywhere else you might use chili powder. With a bright flavor and moderate 3-4 (out of 10) heat level, guajillo chili powder is sure to become a kitchen favorite.
