FRESH CHILACA CHILI

Chilaca peppers, also known as Pasilla Negro, Chile Negro, Chile Pasilla, Morilla, or Pasilla Bajio, are mild, rich-flavored peppers. The gentle, full-bodied flavor makes it ideal for tasty enchilada sauces. This is the pepper of choice (once dried and ground into a powder) for the famous Mexican mole (mo-lay) sauce.

This pepper is also known as Chile Negro, or Chilaca when picked fresh. The name, ‘Pasilla’ means ‘little raisin’ in Spanish, referring to the dark brown, wrinkled dried pod. The plant height grows 30 inches tall and produces a large fruit in the size of 8 – 10 inches in length and 1 inch diameter. Like most peppers it is astronomically classified as a Capsicum annuum. It carries a very mild Scoville unit rating of 1000, making it a mildly hot fruit. The pepper is slightly sweet and has a very distinctive slender shape, it’s thin walled, and ripens from dark green to dark brown. When well ripened and used as a dried pod or in powder form, they have a unique rich and full flavor that is the key ingredient in mole, a signature Mexican holiday sauce from the Oaxaca region of Mexico.

The chilaca pepper is a mild to medium-hot pepper that has a rich and robust flavor. The chilaca is actually a reference to the ripe version of this pepper, when dried it is called a pasilla chile or chile negro. It is commonly grown and eaten in Central Mexico around Guanajuato, Valisco and Zacatecas and in several northwestern regions.

The name of this chili is derived from the Nahuatl acatl language and its rough translation means “gray hair” or “old,” which describes its bent and wrinkled appearance.

Chilaca peppers are most commonly twisted or slightly curved and are long and thin. These peppers commonly grow between 6 and 8 inches long and are roughly about 1 inch in diameter. 

The chilaca peppers achieve their coloring as they mature when red pigment is produced but the chlorophyll is still retained. When they ripen completely, they appear dark brown, like chocolate, or even black and are known to have a pungent flavor.

The chilaca pepper is often dried, becoming the pasilla, and used in that form. They are commonly put in sauces or they can be ground up into a powder for a seasoning. Pasilla de Oaxaca is a variety of smoked pasilla chile from Oaxaca used in mole negro.

If left fresh the chilaca can be used in salsas, stews, and soups that require some pungency.

It has a rich smoky flavor and can be used to flavor any dish. It has always been a long-standing staple ingredient in the Mole sauces of Latin America, and now this pepper is gaining favor among chefs as well for its uniquely dense pepper flavor. The Pasilla can even create an interesting twist in the flavor and appearance of the standard red chile enchilada sauce. It is also a favorite in combination with fruits or accompanying duck, seafood, mushrooms, garlic, fennel, honey or oregano.
