Ancho, Chili Powder

Ancho chilies are dried poblano peppers. This wrinkled, brownish-black chili has an earthy flavor which is slightly raisin-like. Ancho chili powder and pasilla chili powder are often confused in the United States. The ancho has a wonderful savory flavor and is much milder with a Scoville level of just 1000 to 1,500 units.

Ancho chili powder is widely used in Mexican salsa, mole and tamales. Considered part of the "Holy Trinity" of Mexican chilies along with the guajillo and the pasilla, these three chili powders should be in every cook's pantry who enjoys preparing authentic Mexican and Southwestern cuisine.

Ancho chili, because of its mild heat and savory flavor, can be used in everything from ball-park chili dogs to chile rellenos. Many Mexican recipes use Ancho chiles and using our powder will help to lend a distinctively sweet, but piquant and authentic flavor to your Mexican dishes.

Silver Cloud's Ancho, Chili Powder is 100% pure. We do not add any salt, spices or preservatives.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.
