Description & Use
There are literally hundreds of different chillies, all of which descend from the original ones discovered by the Spanish when they found the Americas. Prior to this chillies were unknown to the rest of the world. The warming bite and delicious capsicum taste of chilli was warmly embraced by nearly every nation on earth, thus we find some form of capsicum or chilli in nearly every cuisine. Dried chillies have a very different flavour to fresh ones, as upon drying a caramelization of the sugars takes place which creates a delicious, robust taste not found in fresh chillies, in the same way a sun-dried tomato has a more complex flavour profile than a fresh one. As New Mexico chillies are difficult to import at the moment, Chilli Guallilo may be used as a substitute.
Guajillo Chillies: are a convenient way to add the flavour of Guajillo Chilli to many different meals. This chilli that originated from Mexico has a rich chocolatey flavour, making it a perfect partner to any kind of chilli chocolate dish such as Mole Poblano.
