Ancho Chile Powder


Ingredients: ground ancho chiles

Ancho chili powder has a sweet, slightly smoky flavor with mild heat and is often found in authentic Mexican cooking as well as Southwestern and Tex-Mex cuisines. Ancho chile powder shines in spice rubs, mole sauces, and in enchilada sauces.

It's great on pork, rice, beans, beef, chicken, dips, pasta, pizza, eggs, potatoes, salsa, soups, casseroles, and stews. Try mixing a teaspoon of ancho chile powder with some fresh, raw honey for the perfect glaze for salmon or other sautéed fish. Sprinkle on your popcorn or anywhere you would use salt and pepper.

Ground from dried pablano chile peppers, ancho chile powder is considered a mild chile with a heat range of 4,000 to 9,000 SHU.
