Ground ancho chilies
Pure ancho chile powder is ground from poblano chili peppers that have been dried. Ancho chilies are mild and prized for their rich, fruity flavor. They are a classic ingredient in traditional Mexican moles.
We also offer whole ancho chilies.

Store ancho chile powder in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.
Though they will not stay strong for as long as whole dried chilies, chili powders should retain their potency for up to a year.
RECIPES & TIPS
Ancho chilies are a classic ingredient in Mexican mole sauces. Ground ancho chile powder is easily used in homemade spice blends, rubs for meat or seafood, or mixed into dishes. Try blending it with hotter chili powders to bring more depth of flavor to them without making them more spicy.
1 tablespoon of ancho chili powder will substitute for a whole ancho chile.
