Dried Guajillo chile peppers are small to medium in size, averaging 10 to 15 centimeters in length, and have a flattened, conical shape, tapering to a pointed, slightly curved tip. The pepper’s dark red skin is smooth, semi-wrinkled, tough, and glossy with a pliable nature, an indication of freshness. If the pepper’s surface cracks when lightly bent, then it is a sign that it has been stored for an extended period, losing flavor and texture. Underneath the surface, the pepper contains a hollow cavity filled with small and round, golden seeds. Dried Guajillo chile peppers have a complex blend of fruity, nutty, and savory flavors combined with berry-like nuances and a mild to moderate spice. When the peppers are toasted, the flavor is enhanced with smokey undertones.
Dried Guajillo chile peppers are available year-round.
Dried Guajillo chile peppers, botanically classified as Capsicum annuum, are a sweet, mild to moderately hot pepper belonging to the Solanaceae or nightshade family. The elongated, dark red peppers are the dried versions of the mirasol chile pepper. Guajillo chile peppers are given a new name, separate from their fresh counterparts, in recognition of the dried pepper’s distinct flavor. Dried Guajillo chile peppers are also used in different preparations, separate from the fresh versions, and the unique names allow chefs and home cooks to incorporate the correct pepper into their recipes. Guajillo peppers have some heat, ranging from 2,500 to 5,000 SHU on the Scoville scale, similar in spice to a jalapeno, which can reach up to 8,000 SHU. There are two main varieties of Guajillo chile peppers cultivated for culinary use. The primary type is simply known as Guajillo, a larger, longer, and wider pepper favored for its mild flavor. Guajillo puya is a smaller pepper known for its sharper, spicier taste.
Dried Guajillo chile peppers are an excellent source of vitamins A and C to strengthen the immune system, protect the cells against free radical damage, and reduce inflammation. The dried peppers are also a good source of fiber to regulate the digestive tract, B vitamins to contribute to overall energy levels, and contain lower amounts of iron and magnesium.
Guajillo chile peppers contribute warmth, flavor, and color to both fresh and cooked culinary preparations. The dried peppers are typically sold whole and are often very dusty as they are dried by the sun in open fields. The peppers should be washed before use. It is also recommended to lightly toast the peppers to enhance overall flavor and develop a smokey undertone. Toasted Guajillo chile peppers can then be deseeded and reconstituted by soaking in hot water for at least 20 to 30 minutes. The variety is known for having tough skin, so the peppers may need to soak for a longer period. Once rehydrated, Guajillo chile peppers can be finely chopped or blended into salsas, pastes, sauces, and marinades. The peppers are also used as a flavoring, condiment, or filling for tacos, casseroles, sandwiches, fajitas, and tostadas. In Mexico, Guajillo chile peppers are simmered into a spicy broth for chilate de pollo, topped with tomatoes, cilantro, tomatillos, poultry, and garlic. The peppers can also enrich the color of soups, braising liquids, chiles, and stews, or they can be incorporated into the fillings for tamales and enchiladas. Beyond reconstituting the peppers whole, Guajillo chile peppers can be ground into a powder and used as a spice rub on meat and vegetables. The ground powder is potent. A little of the spice goes a long way in dishes. Dried Guajillo chile peppers pair well with meats such as lamb, goat, poultry, beef, and pork, seafood, especially fish, tomatoes, garlic, onion, tomatoes, tomatillos, sour cream, oregano, and beer. Whole dried peppers will keep 6 to 12 months when stored in a cool, dry, and dark place away from direct sunlight. Guajillo chile peppers are best used within six months for the best quality and flavor. An indication of loss of quality and taste can be determined by the pepper’s texture. If the pepper is brittle and not pliable, it is suggested to invest in a new batch of peppers.
Dried Guajillo chile peppers are one of the most popular dried peppers in Mexico, comparable to the ancho chile pepper, and are used as a base flavoring in Mexican gastronomy. The mild to moderately spicy peppers contribute a rich red hue to dishes, improving the visual aesthetic of sauces, salsas, and marinades. Dried Guajillo peppers are also one of the most commonly grown varieties in Mexico, known as mirasol peppers when fresh. Once dried, the peppers are considered an everyday flavoring, providing fruity, herbal notes. Dried Guajillo chile peppers complement the smokier, earthy nuances of ancho chile peppers and can be combined with spicier cultivars to intensify the heat in dishes. Throughout Mexico, Dried Guajillo chile peppers are traditionally incorporated into mole, a flavorful but complicated sauce that can be made with over 20 to 30 ingredients. Mole has remained a culinary staple in Mexico for centuries, with some of the first written records documented in the early 19th century. Dried Guajillo chile peppers are also commonly mixed into a salsa used as a coating for pambazos, a fried sandwich filled with potatoes, chorizo, lettuce, refried beans, sour cream, and cheese. The slices of bread are dipped into the Guajillo sauce mixture and then skillet fried to develop a crisp exterior.
Dried Guajillo chile peppers are native to Mexico, specifically central and northern regions, and are mainly produced in the states of Aguascalientes, San Luis Potosi, Zacatecas, and Durango. The fruity peppers are the dried version of the mirasol chile pepper, a fresh, mildly hot variety that has been cultivated and dried for centuries, thriving in arid climates. Today Dried Guajillo chile peppers are still grown throughout Mexico, commercially produced, and developed in home gardens, and are also found in Peru, China, and in the United States in Colorado, California, and New Mexico. It is important to note that Dried Guajillo chile peppers produced outside of Mexico may contain a different flavor and spice level. Dried Guajillo chile peppers are sold through online retailers, local markets, specialty distributors, and select grocers.
