A small fruit of the capsicum species, Ancho chilies have the same aroma components as paprika, but contain capsaicin. Capsaicin provides the heat in any chile. Not surprisingly, the greatest variety of chilies originate in Mexico. Our Ancho chilies are a mild poblano pepper, so it has a sweeter flavor and rates low on the heat index.
Ancho chili powder is great base for Mexican or Tex-Mex spiced dishes like chicken or beef fajitas, tacos and chili. It’s also a great addition to beans, dips, pastas, rice, salsa soups and stews. Furthermore, it’s a key ingredient in mole or enchilada sauce. Use it as a dry rub or make a marinade with oil and citrus juice. Our ancho chili powder also pairs well with chocolate and can be used in brownies, cakes and hot cocoa. Mildly sweet it has fruity undertones like plum. The smoky fruity flavor won’t overpower dishes and adds deep and mild chili flavor to a wide variety of dishes.
