Chile Guajillo Whole -2oz, $3.80

One of the most commonly grown chiles in Mexico, dried Guajillos are around 4-6 inches long and taper to a point. They have a deep, burnished red color and a shiny, smooth skin. Their flavor is slightly sweet and tangy and has a nice spicy finish. Though not too spicy, as they rate about a 3-4 on a heat scale of 1-10.

The word "guajillo" means "little gourd" in Spanish and refers to the shape of the chile.

Like other dried chiles, Guajillos can be toasted for added flavor and re-hydrated by soaking in hot tap water. Because their skin is thick and leathery, be sure to soak them a little longer, about 25-30 minutes. Guajillo chiles are great for enchilada sauces, salsa, soups and stews.

In Mexico this chile is second only to the ancho in common use.
