Mirasol chili pepper is known as guajillo chili when dry. This chili with a smooth appearance and a bright reddish color is approximately 10 cm long and is grown mainly in the states of Aguascalientes, Durango and Zacatecas. The guajillo chili is one of the most used chilies in Mexican gastronomy to give color and flavor to sauces, moles, marinades and a lot of other stews.
When we were little our moms cooked it with lots of fresh epazote to give it more flavor. In Mexico it is very common to combine the broth with a few drops of lemon and some tortillas handmade.
My husband and I wish you enjoy this delicious dish !!
