  • Ancho Chile Powder


    The most popular of the ground chile powders. Ancho Chile Powder, a pure chile powder not a blend of spices, is the ground dried Poblano Pepper. Sweet and full of flavor, but not hot, Ancho Chile, 3-5 on a heat scale of 1-10, provides an earthy, mildly fruity flavor with hints of coffee and a faint raisin taste. Add when mild to medium heat and chile flavor are needed. A key ingredient in Mexican and Tex-Mex cooking, Ancho Chile Powder is wonderful in chili, enchilada sauce, salsa and marinades. Add to savory biscuits and egg dishes. Gluten free and non-GMO
