Dried Ancho Chiles - 1.25 oz

Item #: RTC201
Our Price: $3.99


The taste of the Ancho chile has become best known through its pairing with cayenne pepper in the making of chili powder. Ancho chiles are created by drying the poblano pepper which results in a mild paprika-like flavor with a sweet-to-moderate heat.

They have an exquisite earthy flavor perfect for use in meat rubs, salsas, or sauces.

Recipe included; see our website for additional recipes.

Ancho Chile Sauce
The dried version of the chile poblano, reddish black before soaking, the Ancho chile is one of the most versatile dried chiles. On soaking, it turns a rich mahogany red , contributing an attractive red color to many sauces. It has a meaty body and grassy notes of green bell pepper.

Ancho Chile Sauce (Busy Person's Mole)
Mole, perhaps Mexico's most famous sauce, is really a whole family of sauces based on varying proportions of chiles, spices, seeds, nuts, fruits, and chocolate. True moles are too time-consuming to make from scratch, but this simplified sauce uses many classic mole techniques: toasting the chiles and garlic in a hot skillet, soaking and pureeing the chiles, frying the sauce to develop its flavors, but in less than 1/2 the time.

Ancho Tortilla Soup
Ancho chiles are actually nothing more than dried Poblano chiles. This is the most widely used dried chile in Mexico. The chiles should be a dark reddish-brown, and they should have a mildly hot, somewhat sweet flavor. This soup has overtones of both sweet and sour flavors - mildly hot and very sustaining. Serve it with some freshly made guacamole and crunchy tortilla chips.
