Guajillo Chiles

“A workhorse with a lot of dazzle,” according to Chicagoan Rick Bayless, guajillo chiles are bright, tangy, and spicy-sweet. Their flavor makes them ideal for fish and chicken dishes. In Spanish, their name means ‘little gourd’—a reference to the rattling sound their seeds make when these peppers are dried whole.

Details

Whole guajillo chiles are customarily dry toasted in a skillet—or a Mexican clay griddle called a comal—before being pureed into a thin paste. Guajillo puree has a dynamically fruity flavor, redolent of cranberry and tomato, with a hint of smokiness. Their moderate heat level—500 to 5,000 on the Scoville Heat Scale—makes them a good choice for family-friendly cooking. Guajillo is a popular chile pepper for meat marinades, mole sauce, pozole, chili con carne, tortilla soup, and homemade salsas. Please note: since whole chilies are dried in the field, we suggest washing them before use them. We also carry powdered guajillo pepper.
