Ancho chillies are poblano peppers that have been roasted and dried. They have a sweet and smoky flavour which adds richness to cooking. They have a mild heat and are reminiscent to raisins in flavour. These flakes are perfect for sprinkling over an array of dishes including salads, soups, tacos and much more. Scoville Scale – 1000 units – Mild to medium heat. Hydrate them for 5 minutes in hot water, remove seeds and vein, stuff with fresh cheese, soak them in whipped egg whites and fry them in very hot oil for 5 minutes. Serve with a tomato sauce. This is a delicious alternative to the poblano stuffed chillies.
Place the remaining chillies in an air tight container and keep in a cool, dry place.
