Pasilla chilis are beloved for their sweetness and warm, rich heat. "Pasilla" means "little raisin" in Spanish, and the name refers to their rich, dark skins and earthy flavor. Purplish-brown on the outside and red on the inside when fresh, they dry up smoky-sweet, with notes of cocoa and cherries.

Our pasillas are grown by Fire Tongue Farms in the Central Valley, outside a town called Woodland. They are allowed to ripen to full maturity so they develop their full flavor profile, and the fruity-smoky taste comes about naturally during the dehydration process (they are not smoked). Milder than a Jalapeño, these are the perfect everyday chili flake. 

Pasillas are essential to many Mexican dishes. They are used in mole, enchilada sauce and salsas, and their nutty flavor is also welcome in stews, tomato sauces, chili, marinades for meat and mushrooms, and roasted vegetables. They are dried low and slow, and the flakes have all the fruitiness of a fresh red pepper. They are perfect as a garnish, too: simply sprinkle on anything that needs a little extra warmth.

Not too hot

This has an authentic, rich subtle earthy flavor with a tinge of heat. It adds a punch to enchiladas and just about any southwestern sauce and rub. Perfect addition to Burlap and Barrel!

Adds good rounded depth of flavor

I really like this chili. It adds a real depth of flavor to my dishes, and I find I'm using it quite a lot. (If I want a lot of heat however, I choose another chili).
