Sorry, Sold Out
Whole Ancho Chillies - these dried ancho chillies are one of the most widely used chiles in Mexican cooking. They have the flavour of dried fruit with a hint of tobacco and coffee. Anchos are so named because of their broad shape, as ancho meaning broad or wide in Spanish.

When fresh, anchos are called poblanos. Anchos give a deep red colour and dried fruity flavour to dishes. Whole anchos can also be stuffed or pureed to make sauces for enchiladas, moles and salsas.

Scoville Scale : 1,000-1,500

To use these ancho chillies simply wipe clean then cut off the stalk and stem and shake out the seeds. Open the pepper out flat and then toast it in a dry frying pan for a short time until the chilli produces a nutty smell. Remove from the the pan and soak it for 15 minutes in water that has just been boiled. Finally drain the pepper and puree it. This puree can then be added to sauces, stews, soups etc.
