The 'Holy Trinity' of Chiles
“The Holy Trinity” is a tasty blend of 3 Mexican Chili Peppers. They are a staple in any Mexican kitchen and are used in many traditional dishes.
Dried, ripe Poblano Peppers and ancho Chilies have a distinct sweet, fruity flavour and are lower in heat than many other peppers. They are a staple in traditional Mexican dishes, such as Mole sauce and Tamales.
Mulato chilies are also dried Poblano pepper. However, they are picked when very ripe, so the flavour is distinctly different from Ancho chilies. They have moderate heat, and are still sweet like an Ancho, but also exhibit a smokey flavour. Mulato Chilies are the hottest member of the Holy Trinity and are extremely popular in Mexico.
The Pasilla Chile, or “Chile Negro,” is a dried Chilaca pepper. They are mildly hot, with flavours of sweet raisin and coffee. Pasilla chillies are used in a lot of meat and savoury dishes, particularly in the sauce.
A perfect gift for the chile lover!
