Details

Pasilla is the dried form of the Chilaca Chile and means "little raisin" in Spanish. This refers to its appearance with dark brown wrinkled skin when fully mature. Use this pepper fresh for enchilada sauce or salsas. Use it dried and powdered in Mexican mole sauces. This heirloom is easy to grow. Narrow 8-10" peppers are mildly hot with a sweet flavor when fresh, and a rich smoky flavor when dried. Excellent for making smoky flavored sauces! Non-Isolated.
