About:Celebrated for its complex flavor, Guajillo Powder (made from Guajillo chiles), bring a little bit of the best of all the chile flavors - earthy, tangy, smoky, sweet, and spicy.
Guajillo chiles are actually Dried Mirasol Chiles. Mirasol means looking at the sun and refers to the fact that the peppers often grow pointing straight up. When dried, the seeds of these peppers make a rattling sound when they are shaken. That sound is similar to the sound from dried gourds. The name guajillo translates to little gourd.
Taste and Aroma:Mildly spicy & subtle heat; smoke flavor with a hint of berry sweetness.
