Chili Peppers, Pasilla, Whole
Pasilla Chiles, Capsicum annuum, are indigenous to Central Mexico. Pronounced “pah-SEE-yah”, this is a key chile in the famous “holy trinity” of Mexican chiles used in Mexican moles along with the ancho and the mulato chiles.
Like many chiles these are known as one thing when fresh and are called something else when in their dried state. The fresh version is known as Chilaca chiles and these dark green chiles have a similar heat profile to the more popular Poblano pepper
