    best and most simple recipe for this wonderful dish that I have found. If you use the thicker, bagged chips found in most Mexican markets you can do this in a flash and it is just as delicious. Try the suggestion to add cilantro/green onion garnish. Guajillos are not overly hot either. Delish!

    Guajillo chile are moderately hot

  • Susana05 |

    Guajillo peppers are mild not too spicy. It all depends on how many you use. If you don't like spicy food than you can use california chili and it will taste the same without the hint of spice. You can purchase these at any mexican food store where the dried spices are.
