Ancho chili peppers are the dried version of the poblano pepper. Poblano peppers have a sweet flavor and mild heat, and are essential in Mexican cooking.
Grown and dried in Mexico, these ancho chilis are a beautiful red brown, with a sweet and distinct flavor. Both sharp and fruity, their mild peppery heat is balanced by a plum-like flavor and slightly bittersweet notes. Vine ripened and then dried, the already bold flavors of the poblano pepper are concentrated once dried. Use them in Mexican tamales, stuffed peppers, salsa, taco meat, and more. Stuff them with cheese, meat, or even chocolate.
These peppers can be used whole or ground into chili powder, toasted or soaked in hot simmering water until rehydrated. Most of their heat is contained in the seeds and veins, so for all the sweet flavor but none of the heat, remove seeds before cooking.
