Pasilla chillies are a dark green, dried chilaca pepper used in Latin American and Spanish cuisine. Literally translating as ‘little raisin’, mild pasilla has grape-like, liquorice flavours and a medium-low hotness, ranking just 1,000-2,000 on the Scoville Scale of chilli heat.

Soak in warm water to rehydrate the pasilla chillies, and use slivers in salads or garnishes for meat dishes.  Traditionally, pasillas are used in Mexican mole and enchilada sauces or meat marinades. 

May contain nuts and sesame.
