The Ancho Chile is the dried form of the poblano chilli pepper, which is believed to originate from the State of Puebla in Mexico. Roughly 4” long and 3” wide, dried Ancho Chiles have a mild paprika flavour with a sweet to moderate heat.
Ancho chillies, also known as “wide chillies” are a versatile ingredient that can be rehydrated, chopped and blended into a variety of Mexican cuisine.
The Ancho Chilli works great with the Mulato and Pasilla chilli peppers, especially when making mole sauces as they add the perfect amount of heat, flavour and colour. Shop our dried Ancho Chillies.
