Ancho Chile Powder

Ancho chile powder is made from sweet and earthy chilies, that are mildly hot. The chilies are native to Puebla, Mexico. Along with chocolate, these chiles form the base of a popular mole. In Mexico, there are three peppers that change names when changing state: smoked jalapeños are chipotles, dried chilacas are pasillas, and dried poblanos are anchos. Also available in whole.

Details

Ground ancho chile is made from the mild outer flesh of the dried poblano chile pepper. Your palate will enjoy an intense, wonderfully rich chili flavor with practically no heat. These peppers measure in around 500 Scoville heat units. This maroon ancho chile pepper powder is a great base for Mexican dishes, homemade chili, sauces and meat rubs. Ground ancho chile powder is what gives all of our chili powders their rich, bittersweet base of flavors. (Chili, spelled with an “i” refers to an actual blend of spices for the popular Tex-Mex dish chili con carne.) The rich flavor of ground ancho also pairs well with chocolate; adding a bit to brownies, cakes, or hot cocoa enhances the chocolate flavor without adding heat. Contains silicon dioxide.

Can’t make my chili powder without it

I have used the Spice House ground Ancho Chile powder for over 10years. In the early days I tried to find other vendors for ancho that were cheaper, but, the life lesson of “you get what you pay for” proved true again. No other ancho I have tried has the gorgeous color, depth of rich flavor or flavor of this product. I buy it by the pound and it is totally worth it!

The Hardest Working Chili

Like Frank's Hot Sauce says, I use this **** on everything! It's the basis for my Chili con Carne (recipe posted on this site as Uncle Bill's Head Sweatin' Chili), and my southwest Rub. Add it to store bought barbecue sauce along with a little cumin and coriander seed for a deeper flavored sauce. Use it anywhere you want some extra oomph.
