Ancho Chili Powder

Flavor profile & uses

Ancho Chili Powder is ground Ancho (Pablano) chili peppers. The Ancho Chili is a dark, smoky chili with a deep, rich flavor & mild heat ranging from 2-3K H.U. Their flavor is somewhat sweet with underlying fruit notes, and is a little raisin like. It is most commonly used in authentic Mexican cooking and as a staple in red chili & tamales. It is a terrific choice for those who are looking for a “milder” taste in their cooking. You can use Ancho Powder just as you would salt or pepper - sprinkle it on pasta, baked potatoes, vegetables, soups, pizza, popcorn and more. In addition to using in Mexican dishes, also try it to season chicken, stews, potatoes, and vegetables. Ancho is also one of three chilies used in the very popular mole sauce.

How is the heat determined for Cayenne & Chili Peppers?

The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat of the cayenne and chili peppers, as reported in Scoville heat units (S.H.U. or H.U.), due to the capsaicin concentration. The substances that give the peppers their intensity when ingested are capsaicin and the related compounds known as capsaicinoids. The greater amount of these compounds there are in the chili, the hotter it is.

Outstanding product and service

I am enjoying this ancho chili powder tremendously. I have found all the spices I've tried so far to be very fresh and high quality. Before finding Starwest Botanicals, I searched extensively for gluten-free spices, as I'm extremely sensitive to even tiny amounts from cross-contamination. Several other companies were unable to provide any assurances that their products are gluten-free, having been processed on shared equipment with gluten-containing products. Starwest Customer Service has been outstanding in responding in a thorough and timely manner to my questions about their products.
