Ancho Chili Peppers, Dried
Essential Spice Ancho Chilies are commonly known as the dried version of the poblano pepper.
They produce the sweetest flavor of all the dried chili varieties. Derived from Mexico, the Ancho, which is Spanish for "wide", chilies are typically flat, heart- shaped, and have a wrinkly-tough skin texture. This chili is great for making any mild to medium heat sauces & Mexican style chili pastes.
Ancho is commonly used the very popular Mole Sauce.
