About Chili Pepper, Ancho Powder

Product Info:
Ancho (Ahn-cho) Chile (Capsicum annuum) powder (35 mesh) is made from grinding whole Anchos, seeds and pod both. Ancho powder is 100 pure to provide an authentic flavor. Grown in Mexico, Anchos are common to Mexican and Southwestern cooking. Anchos have a mild, sweet, fruity flavor. Dried Ancho has a dark, brick red to mahogany color and ranges from 3 to 5 on a heat scale of 1 to 10. Ancho is the most commonly used dried chile in Mexico. An Ancho is a dried Poblano Pepper and often is mislabeled as a "Pasilla" or "Mulato" pepper. Anchos can be used as a substitute for Guajillo or Pasilla Negro and visa versa. These chiles have the same heat range and flavor profile. Ancho, Pasilla and Guajillo form the "Holy Trinity" of chiles used to prepare traditional mole sauces. Approx. Scoville units are 1,000 to 2,000. 

Suggested Use:
Great in sauces, salsa, and soups. Add directly to the cooking liquid along with other spices. Use in stir fry, or sprinkled over poultry or fish before baking or grilling. Spritzing popped popcorn with water and then tossing with a bit of chile powder is a great snack.

Dried Ancho Chiles.

Basic Prep:
Chile powders require no preparation. Add directly to recipes when a boost of flavor and heat are desired. Substitute 1 tbs. of ancho powder when a recipe calls for 1 whole ancho chile.


Often also spelled Chile, Chilli, Chille.

    Fresh, Potent, Great Price

    I stumbled across this company on line last year. They have never let me down. Their products are reasonably priced for premium stuff. It's always fresh and potent. It becomes especially cost effective when you don't have to over spice your cooking to get the flavor you're after.

    The color and the flavor of this chili powder is wonderful. Order in small amounts so as not to loose it's effectiveness. Great price too.

    I like that I can purchase the spice by the ounce. The spice is great, taste so good in many recipes. Stores do not carry this spice. Sold at a low price.
