Mulato Dried Chili Peppers

Mulato chilies, one of the three peppers that form the “holy trinity” of Mexican cooking, are produced from poblano peppers that are allowed to fully ripen before being dried. They have a rich, complex flavor with notes of raisin, cherry, chocolate, and tobacco, and a very low heat.

Mulato peppers, along with ancho and pasilla peppers, form the backbone of many Mexican recipes. Their dark color and sweet flavor makes them an excellent choice for moles, soups, and chili. They score a very low 2500-3000 Scoville heat units, adding rich flavor without heat.
