Ancho Chili Pepper

Made from ripe poblano peppers, ancho chili powder has a deep, rich, smoky flavor with mild to medium heat. The most commonly used dried chile in authentic Mexican cuisine, it is a key ingredient in adobos, moles, and sauces for enchiladas and salsas. Ancho chili powder also works well in salsas and chilis or as a seasoning for meat, vegetables, and beans. The smokiness of this pepper counterbalances sweeter vegetables like corn and sweet potatoes. Add a visual richness to dishes and blends with this dark, brick-red powder. 

Originating in the Puebla Valley, just southeast of Mexico City, the ancho is one of the most popular dried chile varieties in the world.


Ancho peppers are actually poblano peppers that are left on the vine to ripen fully. They are native to Puebla, Mexico and members of the plant genus Capsicum.

Did you know?

Ancho is the most commonly used dried chili in Mexico. Together with mulato and pasilla, it makes the, “Holy Trinity of Mexican Chilies.”
