Ancho Chillies Ground

Product Overview

Ancho chillies, or Poblano chillies, originate from Mexico. Each dried, brick red chilli is 4–5 inches long and 3 inches wide then ground into a fine powder.

The chillies are sweet, smoky and fruity in flavour with notes of tobacco, liquorice and coffee. Hints of plum and raisin can also be detected within the flavour. Due to their mild taste, the chillies can add a subtle warmth to stews, meat rubs and sauces.

Ancho, Pasilla and Mulato chillies are the ‘holy trinity’ of Mexican cuisine and used to make authentic mole sauce. We also use Ancho in our fierce Chilli Powder.

    There is a subtle heat in these ground chilies but the main notes are smokey and sweet! Mexico in a stay-fresh bag. Very impressed. This was my second order after tentatively topping up my Indian spices on the first order. North Africa next,
    I think.
