Description

The dried Guajillo has a strong fruity taste with a tendency to berrys/green tea. The Guajillo has a mild taste in terms of hotness compared to other dried peppers. This makes it a common seasoning for many dishes. For example, the Guajillo is an important ingredient in barbecue sauces, chorizo & mole.

In Mexican cuisine, the Guajillo, together with the Pasilla and Ancho, is part of the ‘Holy Trinity’ among dried chilli peppers. All three are used in traditional mole sauces. In addition, they are important flavours in many sauces, salsas and soups.

Preparation
– Fry the dried chillies in a dry frying pan on medium heat for about 2 minutes. This will release the essential oils and give them more flavour. Then rehydrate by soaking them in hot water for about 15/20 minutes, then chop as you prefer.
– Place the dried chillies in a food processor and grind them until they have the coarse texture you prefer, flakes or powder.

To keep dried chillies fresh for a long time, it’s best to store them in an airtight container in the pantry or even better, in the freezer. Avoid exposure to air, moisture, light and heat, which can cause the dried chillies to discolour, mould and lose their flavour.

The dried chillies have a long shelf life, but for optimum flavour and spiciness we advise to not store them for longer than a year. Click here for more information on storing and freezing dried chillies.
