Ancho Chili

Ancho chili is the almost mature dried form a Mexican chili variety called Poblano. They have a complex, unique taste with rich, earthy, fruity flavors and a mild, sweet heat. The dried poblano chilis of Ancho and Mulato are some of the most important ingredients in Mexican cuisine together with Guajillo. 

It is commonly used in sauces, spice rubs and marinades. It is used pureed, powdered or chopped. Ancho, Pasilla, Guajillo and Mulato chilis are the base in many of Mexicos traditional mole sauces and dishes.

Our Ancho chili is sourced from the state of Zacatecas, south of the city of Fresnillo, from a farm operated by Omar and his family. Here the dry cool climate is perfectly suited to grow many of the famous Mexican chilis with full sunlight, high temperatures and perfect rainfall in rainy season. It has been oven dried without smoke. During the drying time the taste changes significantly, one could compare it with grapes vs. raisins.
