Pasilla Chile Powder Recipe - A Mild Blend
of Ground Pasilla Peppers and Spices

This pasilla chile powder is really quick and easy to make and ideal for those who like tons of flavour but less heat. Using a blend of pre-ground pasilla peppers and spices, it can be made in just minutes and will add fab flavours and aromas to numerous dishes. (See the bottom of the page for links to more of my homemade seasonings)

Note: For a lot of my recipes I try and use as many whole spices which I then grind and combine with other ingredients. However, I appreciate you may not have whole spices to hand so this recipe uses pre-ground powders which you simply combine creating a simple, tasty blend in minutes.

2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp paprika powder
2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp fenugreek powder
1 tsp ajwain powder (optional)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1-2 tsp fine salt

  • In a bowl, simply combine all the ingredients together

That's all there is to it!

Store your pasilla powder in a cool place, in an airtight jar and out of direct sunlight. Use within 3 months.

Note: You can easily buy pre-ground pasilla pepper online nowadays.

Note 2: I use a quality fine sea/rock salt for this recipe which is healthier than processed table salt. recommend. But if that's all you have, table salt will work.
