Ancho Chile Powder has a mild fruity and smoky flavor with hints of tobacco and plum. Use it in mole and enchilada rubs or add it to Mexican style bean and rice dishes, dips, pizza, chili, salsa, and stews. If you are a fan of seafood, Ancho Chile Powder is the perfect partner for sauteed salmon. With slightly less kick than chipotle chile powder, this is a good option for those who prefer medium heat.
