Reyes Produce - source for the most fresh Mexican produce including Chile Ancho...
- Deep red and translucent, the dried pulla (also known as "puya"), pronounced POO-yuh, is elongated and slightly curved. Tapering to a point and about three to four inches in length, its thin flesh has a light fruity flavor with a slight hint of licorice. Its medium-pungent heat is dusty, dry and quite intense. Scoville units: 6 (5,000-15,000).
- Dried pullas contain vitamin A, C, the B vitamins and significant amounts of iron, thiamine, niacin, magnesium and riboflavin. Chiles are cholesterol-free, saturated fat-free, low calorie, low sodium, and high in fiber.
- May be added directly to a recipe or rehydrated by soaking in hot water for 10 minutes. For more flavor, roast for three to four minutes in 250-degree oven.
- Delicious in stews, soups, dips, chutneys, casseroles, cooked vegetables, and as a seasoning for salsas and sauces. Give warmth to meat and poultry dishes with this dried chile. Add flavor to breakfast burritos, tortilla soup and to fish entrees
