Pasilla Chili on sale at Mexican online store MexGrocer. Pasilla is the dried form of the long and narrow chilaca pepper. Pasilla chillies are used in Mexican cooking to make sauces and stews.
Pasilla is pronounced pah-SEE-yah and literally means "little raisin".
It is a mild to medium-hot, rich-flavored chili. Generally, they are 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 cm) long and 1 to 1.5 inches (2.5 to 4 cm) in diameter. The fresh narrow chilaca can measure up to 9 inches (22 cm) long and often has a twisted shape, which is seldom apparent after drying. It turns from dark green to dark brown when fully mature.
