Ancho Chilli

5/5 from 12 Customers

Large, fleshy chillies with a delicious, sweet and mild flavour with notes of raisins or liquorice. The thick flesh means that the chilli is rarely used uncooked - the best flavours are achieved through long, slow cooking or soaking the chilli in boiling water to soften, then making a puree that can be added as required.

Ancho powder is a wonderful and convenient ingredient in any kitchen adding an incredible depth of flavour without any real heat.

Uses:
Add the whole chilli or large pieces to a soup - then puree - or stew. Add a little of the chilli puree or powder to mayonnaise or sauces for a delicious, subtly spicy flavour. Use a pinch of the powder to season roast or grilled meats or vegetables.

Quick, efficient delivery! Products are great, and I look forward to trying more of the spices and chilis that are available on the site (especially ones that are much more difficult to find in shops)!

I've bought from The Spicery on several occasions. They are always prompt to send out orders, never any problems, and the quality is fantastic. Highly recommended!

Every so often I get a hankering for real anchos in my enchiladas and there isn't really another flavour quite like them. So being able to buy these from the Spicery is a real treat.

Unusual chilli which I've used in Mexican dishes. Adds flavour to Mexican stews/casseroles.
