This Chile is between a 2-4 on the heat scale of 1 – 10. Guajillo, combined with the Pasilla and Ancho, form the “holy trinity” of chilies used to prepare the traditional mole sauces.

A mildly hot chile, use in sauces, salsa, soups and your favorite chili. A little goes a long way!

Reconstituting Dried Chile Peppers

Fill a small 1-2 quart saucepan with water and bring to a boil over high heat.  Use a larger saucepan if you are reconstituting more than 6-8 peppers.  Remove the pan from the heat.  Add the peppers to the hot water and allow them to soften/reconstitute for about 20-30 minutes.  Drain and use as directed.

Note: Always discard the bitter soaking water.

    Tried you Habanero recipe. John. Wow, it was dynimate! And I mean that in the very best of ways. It was delicious! Used it on tacos de arrachera that I’d prepared. This is the level of picante that I enjoy. Next, I will prepare the Harissa. Will report back on that!
