Exquisite Seasoning from The Spice House
"A workhorse with a lot of dazzle," according to Chicagoan Rick Bayless, guajillo chiles are bright, tangy, and spicy-sweet. Their flavor makes them ideal for fish and chicken dishes. In Spanish, their name means "little gourd," a reference to the rattling sound their seeds make when these peppers are dried whole.

Ground guajillo chile pepper conveniently adds its tangy flavor to any dish, saving you time from pureeing the whole chiles. Guajillo peppers have a dynamically fruity flavor, redolent of cranberry and tomato, with a hint of smokiness.This ground form also lets you craft custom spice blends and BBQ rubs. Guajillo’s moderate heat level—500 to 5,000 on the Scoville Heat Scale—makes them a good choice for family-friendly cooking. Guajillo is a popular chile pepper for meat marinades, mole sauce, pozole, chili con carne, tortilla soup, and homemade salsas. We also carry whole guajillo pepper.
