      Guajillo chilli is a hot spice. It is mildly spicy however and offers sweet fruity flavours with a sour tangy aftertaste. Guajillo chilli pairs well with sweet vegetables like tomatoes, peppers and squash. Proteins like eggs, beans and meats go well with the slight sourness of the guajillo chilli.
