Pasilla Negro Chile

Pasilla Negro chiles (pronounced "pah-SEE-yah"), Capsicum annuum, are also referred to as Pasilla, chile negro, chile pasilla de Mexico, Mexican negro or pasilla bajio.

Pasilla Negro chiles are long and slender, averaging six to nine inches in length and are about two inches in diameter. The pepper's skin is wrinkled like a raisin and glossy. The color is dark brownish-red to almost black.

Pasilla translates to "little raisin" due to its dark, wrinkled skin. Many dried chiles are called one thing when dried and another when fresh; this chile is known as chilaca (“CHI-la-ka”) chile when in its fresh state.

There are approximately two dried Pasilla Negro Chiles per ounce.

1 Pasilla Negro Chile is equal to 1 Tablespoon of Pasilla Negro Chile Powder


Flavor Profile

The flavor of the Pasilla pepper is spicy and tangy with chocolate and raisin notes, and its rich flavor is supported by woodsy undertones.


Heat Level

Pasilla chiles have a heat range of 1,000 to 1,500 SHU and are considered mild heat chiles.


How to Use

Pasilla peppers are the signature flavor in tortilla soup; crumble on top for maximum flavor. Pasilla chiles are one of the famous "holy trinity" of chiles used in Mexican moles, along with Ancho chiles and Mulato chiles.

Pasilla peppers can be rehydrated and stuffed with flavorful blends of meats and cheeses. Once dehydrated, they can also be made into a paste or puree and added to adobos, chili, cream sauces, seafood chowder, salsas, enchilada sauce, or mole sauce.

Pasilla peppers can be toasted and ground into a Pasilla chile powder for use.

Very nice chilis. I prefer to shop locally when I can, but the quality of the several varieties of dried chilis I recently got from Spices Inc were far superior to the dried(out) chilis I could find in my area. I was very pleased with the product and the service.
