Peppers, Pasilla, Dried - a serving size is considered 1 pepper or 45 grams and 20 calories.

The dried pasilla or "little raisin" is a long, thin and narrow, often dark brown to black with a wrinkled skin pepper. One of the "holy trinity" of chiles of mole sauce including ancho and mulato. Having a mild to medium hot rich flavor is also known as "chile negro".

The ancho pepper is sweeter but the pasilla can be combined with fruits or used in recipes for duck, seafood, lamb, mushrooms, garlic, fennel, honey, oregano, sauces, casseroles, soups, stews and spice rubs.
