Guajillo chilies, a staple in Mexican cuisine, are dried, medium-sized peppers renowned for their rich flavor and moderate heat. With a deep red color and a smooth, shiny skin, these chilies are often characterized by a mild sweetness, imparting a complex and smoky taste to dishes.


  • Appearance: Guajillo chilies are typically medium to large in size, ranging from 4 to 6 inches in length. They have a smooth, bright red skin, and when dried, their texture becomes somewhat leathery.
  • Flavor Profile: Known for their unique combination of flavors, guajillo chilies offer a mild to moderate heat level. They are prized for their slightly sweet, fruity undertones, along with earthy and smoky notes.
  • Scoville Heat Units (SHU): Guajillo chilies fall in the range of 2,500 to 5,000 SHU, making them milder compared to some other chili varieties. This makes them accessible to a broader range of palates.
  • Aroma: When crushed or ground, guajillo chilies release a pungent, sweet, and smoky aroma that adds depth to culinary creations.


  • Sauces and Salsas: Guajillo chilies are frequently used to make flavorful sauces and salsas. They can be rehydrated, blended, and combined with other ingredients to create a versatile base for various dishes.
  • Stews and Soups: These chilies can be incorporated into stews and soups to add both color and a subtle, smoky heat. They complement the flavors of meats, beans, and vegetables.
  • Marinades: Guajillo chilies work well in marinades for meats, providing a delightful balance of heat and sweetness. The marinade enhances the taste and tenderness of grilled or roasted dishes.
  • Tamales and Enchiladas: In Mexican cuisine, guajillo chilies are a common ingredient in the preparation of tamales and enchiladas. They contribute to the distinctive taste of the sauces used in these traditional dishes.
  • Dry Rubs: Ground guajillo chilies are often part of dry rubs for meats, adding a layer of flavor that can be intensified during grilling or roasting.
