It is the dried form of the mirasol chili pepper, second in popularity only to the ancho, offering sweet flavor and mild-medium heat. The Guajillo is one of the most common and popular chili peppers grown and used in Mexico, and a beloved pepper used in Mexican cuisine. It is mild to moderately hot, and has dark, reddish brown, leathery skin. The peppers range from 3-5 inches in length and are 1 inch wide. They are said to have either a green-tea flavor or fruity flavor, with hints of berries. Guajillos, along with pasilla and ancho peppers, are used in traditional mole sauces. They are sometimes said to comprise the “holy trinity” of Mexican chile peppers, sometimes along with the dark mulanto pepper though that is a very loose term. They are great in sauces, salsas and soups and chili, especially in salsa for tamales. They can be ground down into a paste or a rub to add flavor to meat, or to make homemade harissa, a chili paste used in Tunisian cuisine.
