SPECIFICS: ANCHO CHILE POWDER is widely used in Mexico and is made from fresh, mild Poblano chiles. Ripe Poblano chile pods are picked fresh from the fields and then they are professionally dehydrated. Once dried, the Poblano pepper is a broad, flat, heart-shaped pod then called Ancho chile. After dehydration, the product is ground into a powder. This powder has a sweet, earthy, rich, fruity flavor. It has a mild to moderate heat level varying between 1000 and 1500 Scoville Units and is deep reddish - brown in color.
