F A Q
How to use Dried Pasilla Peppers?
These peppers are often sold whole or powdered. If using the chili as a whole, you need to roast them first before you can incorporate them into your dishes. Once the peppers are roasted, remove the seeds and veins and soak in hot water for about 5 minutes. Remove the peppers in water and leave them to dry. Once dry, you can stuff them with grated cheese or your favorite shredded meat. If preparing sauce, simply toast the chile peppers. If making sauce using powdered Pasilla peppers, stir in flour and chili powder in heated oil before adding other ingredients.
