When there are no fresh chillies at hand: Chilli paste for quickly seasoning dishes.
Ancho chillies are red ripened and dried Poblano chillies, one of the most popular chillies in Mexico. It`s a relatively mild variety (1,000 to 2,000 Scoville), and its color ranges from a dark brick red to mahogany. Anchos are very aromatic and sweet with a fruity aroma and notes of prunes, coffee, tobacco, liquorice and raisins. The anchos are mainly used in sauces. They give the dishes a plum and raisin note, indispensable for an authentic Mexican taste experience. The aroma also goes well with pork or chili con carne.
