ANCHO CHILE POWDER - Kosher/Gluten Free



The Ancho (Ahn-Cho) Chile is the most commonly used chile in Mexico. Ancho Powder is made from grinding whole Anchos, seeds, and pod both. Ancho powder (35 mesh) is 100% pure. Grown in Mexico, Ancho Chiles are common to Mexican and Southwestern cooking, they are actually a dried Poblano pepper and are often mislabeled as a “Pasilla” or “Mulato” pepper. Dried Ancho Chiles are brick red to reddish black or mahogany color and range in size up to 4 inches in length. The Ancho Chile along with the Pasilla and Guajillo chiles form the "Holy Trinity" of chiles used to prepare traditional mole sauces. Ancho Chiles are often the ingredient in chili, soups, sauces, and salsas. Approx. Scoville units are 4,000 to 9,000.
