Dried chili Pasilla from Xatze 75g
The Pasilla chile is the dried version of the Chilaca chile and its name means "little raisin" because of its coloration and texture when dried. This type of chile is very popular among lovers of Mexican cuisine because of its mild flavor profile. Usually, the pods are dried in their whole form, sometimes ground as a powder. Fresh, the pasilla pod is rarely used. Pasilla chile is very popular as an ingredient for many sauces such as salsa borracha, for various types of moles and marinades, and for various stews with beef, pork, and chicken.
