Rich chocolatey heat!

Searching for a way to spice up your favorite dishes without burning your tastebuds? Look no further than the rich chocolatey flavor, stimulating aroma, and mild heat offered up by the ancho chile pepper.

Hailing from Puebla, Mexico, the ancho chile (Capsicum annuum) is a fully ripened and dried poblano pepper. Once harvested and dried, it takes on a deep mahogany color and flattens into a wrinkled, almost heart-shaped pepper that is just waiting to impart its sweet, smoky spice to your meal.

When cooking with ancho chile peppers, there are a few helpful tips to aid them in releasing their full flavor potential. Remove the chile's seeds and stems and then enhancing their flavor by roasting them in a dry pan or warm oven. Rehydrating chiles in hot water for 30 minutes can also soften their flesh which can make blending and pureeing easy for soups and sauces.

N.B. Anchos have an earthier, darker flavor than chile guajillos.
