We know it’s wrong to have a favorite child, but pasilla Oaxaca reigns as our favorite chile. Don’t tell the others. They are great in their own ways, but pasilla Oaxaca has it all. Piquant and smoky, without being too much of either, these chiles can be used in soups and stews, sauces and more. If you’ve never used them, this dip is a fantastic introduction. Pasilla Oaxacas are dried smoked chilaca peppers. They have more heat than their ancho pepper siblings, but less than chipotle, they are smoky and have a great depth of flavor. Just pop one of these in while the beans are cooking, then blend it all up for this creamy dip. Tasty hot or cold, this dip is delicious.
