Made from dried poblano peppers, ancho is brown in color and offers a mild flavor with plum and raisin notes. It is the most popular chili powder used in Mexican dishes. Ancho enhances salsa, soups, enchiladas and any sauce that needs a mild heat, such as mole. This chili powder generally ranks between 1,000 and 2,000 on the Scoville Heat Unit scale.
