Dried Ancho Chilies
Ancho chilies are extremely popular in Mexican cuisine. They start life as green poblano peppers that are then dried to become Anchos. They are redish-brown in colour with a wrinkly look and soft texture; they have a lovely sweet, fruity flavour with only a hint of medium heat in them.
They smell like sultanas and they add a depth of flavour to many moles and sauces in Mexico. They're responsible for the beautiful red colour in Mole Poblano. Ancho Chilies also lovely in baking or stuffed! I use them a lot in my kitchen and since they're dried, they last forever in a mason jar!
