The deep, rich flavour of Ancho chillies have made them an important ingredient in many traditional Mexican sauces.They are one of the famous "holy trinity" of chiles used in Mexican moles, along with Ancho and Pasilla chiles. Guajillo chiles are a popular ingredient in Mexican cuisine, but if you don’t have them in your kitchen, is there a good substitute for guajillo chiles?

the dried fruit is seeded, soaked, smashed to a thin paste, then cooked with salt and several other ingredients to produce a thick, red, flavourful sauce.To make a versatile red sauce for enchiladas or chilaquiles, blend guajillo chilli paste with garlic, Mexican oregano and cumin and sear the paste in a hot saucepan with a film of oil ( carefully, as it splatters), stirring constantly until dark and thick. With 0 - no heat bell pepper and 2500 - 8000 - Jalapeno pepper this shows the heat of the Guajillo Chilli compared to these peppers. Guajillos can be used as a green chilli - see our Hatch New-Mex Green Chilli Sauce recipe for a description of how to skin chillies and a how to make a Devon version of the Hatch chilli sauce. You may have an old chile in your pantry, but that does not mean it can't be used or has lost all flavor. A guajillo chili has a medium heat, roughly similar to the jalapeno, with a sweet, aromatic flavour that’s sometimes compared to green tea.

Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat and dry roast the peppers for 15-60 seconds per side by lightly pressing them into the pan with a spatula. If the peppers float to the surface, weigh them down with a small bowl to keep them fully submerged.

If you’re looking for a guajillo pepper substitute, the Cascabel chile pepper is a popular option in Mexico.

Mirasol is used to refer to the fresh pepper, and the term guajillo is used for the dry form, which is the second-most common dried chili in Mexican cuisine. A guajillo chili or guajillo chile or chile guaco ( Spanish: chile guajillo) or mirasol chile is a landrace variety of the species Capsicum annuum with a mirasol ("sunflower" or "looking at the sun") chile fruit type.These have a sweet and smoky flavor with a slightly lower heat level, which makes for a milder guajillo substitute. Guajillo chillies have a tough skin, which means they need soaking for a while to rehydrate and it’s best done in very hot water. Chile de árbol peppers are also smokey and nutty, so you’ll have a similar rich flavor to guajillos. Some people claim that the guajillo is part of the Mexican ‘holy trinity’ of peppers along with pasilla and ancho (sometimes mulato). The downsides are that they may not be rotating the oldest chiles to the front, so you can't be sure of the age of the product you're purchasing.
