Guajillo Chile Peppers are made by drying the mirasol pepper. The name “mirasol” means “looking at the sun” in Spanish, which describes the way the peppers grow pointing upward. In their dry form, known as guajillo, the chile pods are a key ingredient in Mexican mole sauces. These full-bodied chiles also lend their spicy and berry-like flavor well to stews. The guajillo chile pepper is “mild to hot” in spiciness and is the most common chile in Mexican cuisine.
We also offer pure ground guajillo chile powder for use in dry rubs, stocks, and specialty recipes.
