MexicanSpices-17-achiote-paste
Together with Ancho and Pasilla chillies, forms the holy trinity of dried chillies in Mexican cuisine. Mulato chillies are dried Poblano chillies. They have an incredibly beautiful scent, almost fruity and smoky. Flavour wise we can find chocolate, fruity and smoky flavours. With a moderate heat, it is an ideal dried chilli to use in many dishes where you want most of the flavour and less of the heat.
