Las Catrinas Pasilla Whole 60g. 


Pasilla peppers are a type of dried pepper originating from Mexico. They are known for their rich and earthy flavor, with a heat level ranging from mild to medium, making them a popular choice in Mexican cuisine. The pasilla pepper is typically long and slender, measuring 6 to 8 inches in length, and has a wrinkled appearance ranging from dark brown to nearly black. Its name, "pasilla," translates to "little raisin" in Spanish, reflecting its dark and dry appearance.


  • Flavor Profile: Pasilla peppers are appreciated for their complex flavor, which includes notes of dried fruit, cocoa, and a subtle smokiness. They are less spicy compared to some other pepper varieties, making them suitable for a wide range of palates.
  • Heat Level: On the Scoville scale, which measures the spiciness of peppers, pasilla peppers typically fall in the range of 1,000 to 2,500 Scoville Heat Units. This places them in the category of mild to moderate spiciness.
  • Appearance: Dried pasilla peppers are long, slender, and dark brown to black in color. Their wrinkled and shiny skin contributes to their distinct appearance, and they often have a slightly curved shape.
  • Aroma: Pasilla peppers have a fragrant aroma with a combination of earthy and smoky notes. Their dry form intensifies these characteristics, providing a robust scent that enhances the overall culinary experience.

Suggested Uses:

  • Sauces and Salsas: Pasilla peppers are commonly used to make traditional Mexican sauces, such as mole, enchilada sauce, or salsa. Their deep flavor profile contributes to the complexity and depth of these culinary creations.
  • Stews and Soups: The mild to moderate heat level of pasilla peppers makes them versatile in soups and stews. They can be added whole or rehydrated and blended into the base for a flavor infusion without overwhelming spiciness.
  • Meat and Seafood Dishes: Pasilla peppers pair well with various meats and seafood. They can be used in rubs, marinades, or as a key ingredient in slowly cooked dishes, enhancing the overall flavor with their distinctive taste.
  • Chiles Rellenos: Pasilla peppers are often used to make chiles rellenos, a classic Mexican dish where peppers are stuffed, breaded, and fried. Their mild spiciness allows the flavors of the filling to shine.
  • Vegetarian and Vegan Dishes: Due to their rich flavor and moderate spiciness, pasilla peppers are an excellent addition to vegetarian and vegan dishes, adding depth and complexity to plant-based recipes.
  • Careful Selection and Import: Our dried peppers are of higher quality than what you typically find available for sale and have been brought directly from Mexico.
