Beautiful guajillo chiles are perfect for salsas and spice pastes. Guajillo chiles have a modestly hot flavor with a slightly fruity aroma. The smooth, shiny skin is thicker than other chiles, so give them a little longer to soak that other varieties. Puree with tomatoes to make a thick dipping sauce. Also delicious as a compound butter to put on grilled pork chops or skirt steak.
