Pasilla Chili Peppers

(Peppers, Pasilla Chili) Pasilla chili peppers are also referred to as pasilla negro chili peppers. A true pasilla (pronounced pah-SEE-yah; literally "little raisin") is the dried form of the long and narrow chilaca pepper (pictured above). Pasilla chili peppers are mostly used in sauces, and are sold in the dried form pictured here or powdered. The pasilla has a heat index of from 250 - 3,999 Scoville units. It typically grows from 8 to 10 inches long, but we have seen smaller ones in the bags of pasilla chili peppers we have purchased. See the nutritional information below.
