Dried Oaxacan Pasilla Mixe Chile | Masienda | #1 of #1
Whole Pasilla Mixe Chile
1 KG / 2.2 LB
Pasilla Mixe is one of the rarest chiles in the world, and is exclusively grown in the Sierra Norte region of Oaxaca, a territory that is home to the indigenous Mixe people. Gently smoked for three days over smoldering oak wood, Mixe chiles are deep burgundy in color and complex in flavor: almost meaty in their smokiness, mild but assertive heat (like a less spicy chile de árbol), and raisiny sweetness.

Pasilla mixe chiles impart a rich, smoky umami flavor to any dish they’re used in, making them an excellent choice for vegetarian dishes. Try adding them whole to a pot of beans, rehydrating in boiling water to add to soups, moles, or salsas. We also like them toasted on a comal and ground or blended into a paste for a rich, smoky sauce for guisados or to add into your seasonal pozole.
