Ancho, powder

This wonderfully fruity and mild Mexican chilli powder will add a rich burgundy colour and a deep, warm flavour to your cooking. It is one of the most commonly used of all the Mexican chillies, and its slightly smoky flavour means it works extremely well in any dish with a tomato base, from salsas to stews. Many Mexican recipes include several types of chilli, and in these dishes the Ancho provides that smoky note and also a fruity, fresh balance, together with its colour. And because of its mildness, this powder can also be used as a seasoning on more everyday things, such as egg mayonnaise, or to liven up a tomato sauce for pasta. An essential for the store cupboard!
