The Ancho Chile is a dried version of the poblano pepper. Sweet and full-flavored, our De-Stemmed Ancho Chiles provide medium to intense heat with an earthy, mild fruity flavor boasting notes of coffee and raisin.
The Ancho Chile is sometimes mistaken for a pasilla or mulato pepper, but it is actually a dried version of the popular poblano pepper. Mostly grown in Mexico, the word “ancho” means wide, referring to its flat, heart shape.
Mild in heat and rich in flavor the Ancho is must in many Mexican mole recipes. Slightly smoky with a bitterness reminiscent of baker’s chocolate, dried Ancho chile peppers are a welcome addition to stews, soups, and are a welcome addition to any chocolate dessert.
