What is guajillo powder?
Part of the Mexican “Holy Trinity” of chili peppers commonly used in mole sauce, guajillo peppers have a sweet, slightly smoky flavor and a relatively moderate kick. It ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 on the Scoville scale – about the same heat as a jalapeño pepper. Use guajillo powder for more than mole sauces – it’s also delicious in salsas, rubs, soups, and many Mexican meals. See PepperScale’s profile on guajillo pepper.
