Mexican Chilé Ancho 25g

Known for their richness and depth of flavour, Anchos are simply the most commonly used chilli peppers in Mexican cuisine. And SPRIG’s dried version of this ‘Poblano’ or people’s pepper is a mild, sweet chilli, with a sweet earthy flavour of liquorice, tobacco, coffee and raisins.

With their deep, rich red colour and sweet-smoky flavour slightly reminiscent of raisins, these peppers are among the finest sourced from Mexico to give you an authentic experience of Mexican cuisine.

Ancho, together with Mulato and Pasilla chilé  peppers are popularly known as The Holy Trinity, and are considered the best for preparing an authentic Mexican molé sauce. Or salsa or stew.


Ancho chilé can be used whole, in which case they are soaked in hot water to soften them. Ancho powder can be used in spice rubs or for making molé, enchilada sauce and chili.
