Pasilla Chili Powder

Pasilla Chili Powder is made from ground dried pasilla peppers. Pasillas are a medium hot chili with a rich, smoky flavor. When ground into a fine brown powder, pasilla chili powder provides a spicy kick and deep chile taste. It is commonly used in Mexican and Tex-Mex cooking. Pasilla powder works well to season meats like beef, pork, and chicken for tacos, enchiladas, chili, and more. It can also be used in salsas, sauces, rubs, soups, and other dishes. Look for pasilla chili powder sold in plastic bags in the international or Mexican food sections of well-stocked grocery stores. Because of its bold, earthy flavor, a little pasilla powder goes a long way. It adds warmth and smokiness without being overly hot. Pasilla chili powder is the secret ingredient for authentic Southwestern cuisine.
