Chile Powder, Guajillo
While the Guajillo Chile is most frequently sold as a whole chile we have received numerous requests to expand our chile and chile powder selection and to offer the Gujillo in the powder or ground form. This is another chile from Mexico and these are considered a mild heat chile coming in at 1,000 - 2,000 SHU (Scoville Heat Units). The Gujillo has an earthy, bright red in color and the flavor while slightly hot is not overpowering with a simple dried-chile taste. It also has a hint of smoky tartness. Along with the Ancho chile which has a deeper richer taste, the Guajillo, with its zesty and spicy taste, is one of the workhorse chiles that are popular in many Mexican cooked dishes, soups, stews, salsas and sauces.
