The Many Uses of Authentic Mexican Chiles


Melissa Guerra’s Tamales Nortenos Recipe contains ingredients for a unique and bold-tasting meal. It is featured in Melissa Guerra’s own The Texas Provincial Kitchen Cookbook and includes peppers like Chile Guajillo, which adds a sweet, tea-like flavor to the meal; and Chile Ancho, which is actually a dried Poblano Chili that also adds a sweet and coffee-like flavoring.

Another meal that uses Chile Ancho is Melissa Guerra’s recipe for Caldo de Mariscos. This seafood soup is extremely delicious and bursting with flavor. With the right amount of cilantro, garlic, and of course, Chile Ancho, this recipe for Caldo de Mariscos is a definite must-have for any occasion. Be sure to check out Melissa’s blog on Ideas for Using Chile Ancho for a variety of meals that include Chile Ancho in their recipe.

For an easy-to-do and great-tasting salsa, follow Melissa’s recipe for making Salsa de Chile de Arbol, which includes a generous amount of Chile de Arbol for a salsa that is bursting with heat and flavor. This Mexican chili pepper is small in size yet adds a fruity and sharp flavoring to any meal.
