Guajillo Chiles are widely popular in Mexican cooking, coming in second to the famed Ancho chile. Blend them into marinades or sauces for an added boost of sweetness and spice. If you’re interested in cooking Mexican food, then the guajillo is a staple to stock up on.
Guajillo is one of the most versatile chiles when it comes to the pepper spectrum. With a fruitier flavor than many other peppers of its kind, this variety adds a tangy, berry-like punch to its spicy repertoire.
The tough skin of the Guajillo Chile requires you to steep it much longer than you might with other chiles.
