Pasilla Negro

Mexico / Capsicum annum

The heat level of pasilla negro is moderate, and the depth of flavor is vast. One of the darkest and richest chiles available, the grapish, winey character is delicious. One of the "holy trinity" used in moles, Pasilla Negro can also be incorporated into salsas, soups and stews.
