So, what is ancho?

Ancho is a type of dried chili pepper that originates from Mexico. It is made by drying ripe poblano peppers, which are then smoked to give them a distinctive earthy flavor with mild heat. Anchos can be used in a variety of dishes to add depth and complexity to the flavor profile. They can be ground into a powder or rehydrated and pureed to make a paste. Ancho chili powder is commonly used in Mexican cuisine, but it can also be found in Tex-Mex and Southwestern dishes. Anchos are a versatile ingredient that adds bold flavor without overwhelming spiciness.
