  • Origin & History

    Ancho chilies are the dried version of poblano peppers that originally hail from Mexico. Chiles poblanos are named for Puebla, a Mexican city and state where they were used in the local cuisine long before the arrival of Spanish conquistadors. Ancho chilies are part of the Mexican holy trinity of chilies and a necessary ingredient of mole. Poblano peppers are green, but those destined to become Ancho Chiles are allowed to ripen and turn red before they are dried and sold.
