Product Overview

Capsicum annuum

Called chilaca in the fresh form, and pasilla bajio as a dried pepper. The rich, smoky, mildly spicy flavor is indispensable in mole and adobo sauces.

Pasilla means "little raisin" in Spanish, referring to the dark brown, wrinkled, dried form of the chilaca pepper. Fresh chilaca adds character to red enchilada sauce and salsas. The dried pod, or pasilla, is a flavorful and important ingredient in traditional mole sauce. 1,000-2,000 Scoville heat units (mild). Plants are tobacco mosaic virus resistant.
