Ancho Chile Powder
Ancho Chile Powder is the most common chile powder used in Mexican and Southwest cooking. It is the ground version of the dried Poblano chile pepper. They are dark red to dark brown in color, giving your sauce it distinctive dark reddish/brown color. The flavor is somewhat fruity but can also have a slightly smokey flavor, but it is not a smoked pepper. It has a medium heat in the 1,000 to 4,000 SHU range, and nowhere near jalapeno or the hotter chiles.
Use Ancho powder as the base for your Mexican Chile Sauces. Also use in your tacos, enchiladas, tamales, and other Mexican and other Southwest and Border recipes. Adds a great flavor to your moles and BBQ sauces. Use as a rub on your steak, chicken, ribs and other meats.
It is also used to season beans, casseroles, dips, pork, chili, rice, salsa, stews and chili con carne.
