The Guajillo is one of the most popular chiles grown in Mexico, providing a raisin-like wrinkled texture. The Guajillo chili has sweet, fruity tones, and then it hits you with a sharp, savory heat. These peppers grow to 3-6 inches long and just over an inch wide, with the plant growing about 2 feet tall. The dried Guajillo chiles have a unique process as they are dried first as whole pods, then you crush them to a powder to make a seasoning paste. This pepper can be used to create mole sauces, salsas, sauces, and more!
