Ancho Chile Powder

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 16 reviews

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

Like a fine wine, ancho chiles vary in flavor from season to season. You may notice our pure ground ancho chiles will differ slightly in color, heat, and flavor from lot to lot. 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 little to 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. Ingredients: Ancho chiles.

These really have flavor...not just some powdery heat!

Although the heat in these is the classic mild Ancho style, there's enough to awaken the taste buds. But for those who think of ground chiles as being merely powdered heat, they're in for a surprise here! I really don't care for hot spicy foods but these ground chiles or The Spice House's whole dried Ancho peppers are now a staple in my herb and spice drawers. My whole family loves the flavor. I recommend this to all my friends.

Just what I needed, I ran out and ordered a refill ....

It was time to order another 8 ounce bag of the ground ancho chili powder. I mostly use this for making the morning sausage egg and cheese muffin. The brand name sausage is rather bland and needs some doctoring up. This ground ancho chili powder is the ticket. But great on anything else you can think of. I like to sprinkle some over cold smoked meatloaf for a quick lunch or dinner.

Always Ancho!

In any Mexican cooking that I do (for myself, or the kids in my lunchroom at school) I use Ancho chili powder. It gives a deep Mexican flavor without being peppery-hot.
