What is Ancho Powder?
Ancho Powder is ground ancho (pablano) peppers. In other words, it is a chile powder. Ancho Chili is a dark Smokey chili with a deep rich flavor and mild to medium heat. This pepper is the most commonly used in authentic Mexican cooking and is a staple in red chili and tamales.
A terrific choice for those who are looking for a "milder" taste in their cooking. Use Ancho Powder just as you would salt or pepper. Sprinkle on pasta, baked potatoes, vegetables, soups, pizza, popcorn and more. Also try it to season chicken, stews, potatoes, vegetables and, of course, Mexican dishes.
