Ancho chili is the dried version of Pablona Chili, which is native to Mexico. The ancho chili is a very mild chili that has a fruity, almost sweet taste,
reminiscent of dried raisins, liquorice, tobacco and coffee. Ancho chili is often combined with spicier chili varieties to significantly reduce the overall sharpness or spiciness.
This chili goes well with dark sauces, meat dishes and pasta. It can also be combined with chocolate and fruit to elevate the flavor.
