Pasilla Negro Chile Pepper
Pasilla or “little raisin” is the dried version of the Chilaca Pepper. Pasilla Negros, combined with the Ancho and Guajillo, form the holy trinity of chiles used to prepare the traditional mole sauces.
Pasilla Peppers have mild to medium heat, and a rich earthy flavor finishing to floral overtones. They are traditionally used in Mole sauces, or are excellent served with duck, seafood, lamb, vegetables, as well as in soups, stews, and salsa.
