Salsa Guajillo (Guajillo Sauce)

Salsa Guajillo (Guajillo Sauce)

There are several sauces that I would consider essential to make Mexican dishes taste better, these sauces are packed with lovely flavours of chillies and spices.

Today I am sharing with you an easy recipe for a Guajillo sauce that can be use for enchiladas, chilaquiles, broths, with meats, etc! It only has 5 ingredients and those are now very easy to find here in London.

Makes 2 cups of Guajillo Sauce


  • 6 guajillos cleaned, seeds & stems off
  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 small onion peeled
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • pinch of ground cumin
  • two cups of water


Place all the vegetables and dried chillies in a sauce pan and add two cups of water. Bring it to a boil. Boil for 10 min to medium heat.

Transfer everything to a blender and add salt and pinch of cumin. Pour back the sauce into the sauce pan and cook for further 5 min, so all the ingredients combine well.

You can use this simple sauce for chilaquiles, enchiladas, pozole, or pork in chile colorado.

*Tip: If you want your salsa a bit spicy, just add some arbol chillies.
