Guide to Mexican Chilies

There’s a whole world of flavours when it comes to the dried chili peppers of Mexico. Wading into that diversity can seem a little daunting, which is why I’ve written this handy-dandy guide to the most common and important chilies in Mexican cuisine.

Broken down categorically, this guide gives you a primer, and each variety is linked to it’s own Pantry Page designed to teach you how to find, choose, and use the chili in question.

The guide currently covers the ‘Holy Trinity’ peppers (Ancho, Mulato & Pasilla), multi-purpose red chilies (Cascabel, Guajillo, & Puya), smoked peppers (Meco and Morita Chipotles), and hotter, spice-heavy peppers (Arbol and Chile Japones).
