About Chili Pepper, Ancho

Product Info:
Ancho (Ahn-cho) Chile (Capsicum annuum) means "Wide Chile Pepper" when translated. The Dried Ancho has a dark red/mahogany color. The Ancho is about 4 - 5 inches long by 3 inches wide and is very flat. This chile is about a 3 on a heat scale of 1 to 10. An Ancho is the dried form of the poblano pepper and often is mislabeled as a "pasilla" or "mulato" pepper. Anchos combined with the pasilla and guajillo chiles form the Holy Trinity of chiles used to prepare the traditional mole sauce.
