Ingredient: Ancho chillies (dried and ground.)
Chile ancho is the dried version of the poblano pepper, which originates from Puebla, Mexico. The ancho chilli holds a robust smoky flavour that resembles mild notes of paprika with a gentler sweet-heat. There may also be notes of prunes, coffee, tobacco, liquorice and sultanas.
The ground Ancho chilli presentation is an excellent way to add a kick of flavor to any dish and personalize it accordingly to individual taste. They are indispensable for Mexican dishes. Their aroma also harmonises perfectly with roast pork or chilli con carne.
Ancho chillies have a relatively mild heat (1,000 to 2,000 SHU).
