Ancho Chile Powder (pronounced "AHN-cho"), Capsicum annum, is also called ancho chili powder, ancho powder, or chile ancho powder. The poblano chile, when dried, is called chile ancho, which translates to "wide chile".

The Ancho chile pepper is the most used dried chile in authentic Mexican cuisine and is the top-selling pepper to our Mexican restaurant customers. These chiles are especially popular in Southwestern and Tex-Mex cuisines.

Ancho Chile Powder has a mild fruity, sweet, slightly smoky flavor with undertones of plum, raisin, tobacco, and a hint of earthy bitterness.
