Cooking with Mulato Chile
Rehydrate these tasty peppers and use in all of your favorite Mexican dishes that call for very mild heat and loads of flavor. Mulato chiles are smoky like their cousins (ancho chiles), and sweeter with a hint of licorice like flavor.
Use in sauces and soups, or add to your favorite chili recipe and then get for the recipe requests that come rolling in.
Rehydrating these peppers is easy and quick. Simply rinse them under warm water and then soak your mulato chiles in hot water for about 10 minutes.
Here are a few of the most popular ways to use your rehydrated chiles:
Mole: mulato chiles are often used to make Mexican mole, or other sauces. Add rehydrated mulato to the other chiles in your recipe for this delicious and savory chocolate sauce.
Sauces: other sauces benefit from the smoky, aromatic flavor of mulato too. Because it has a very mild heat, you can add liberal amounts to any meat, rice, pasta or vegetable sauce.
Stuffed peppers: make a tasty treat by stuffing rehydrated mulato peppers with yummy cheese, seasoned breadcrumbs, shrimp or ground beef.
You can also add to Mexican rice, or substitute in any savory recipe that calls for red bell pepper with a tiny bit of smoky kick.
