Chile Pepper Profile #1 – Ancho

Ancho

The Ancho, also called poblano is a relatively mild chile pepper originating in the State of Puebla, Mexico. Dried it is called an ancho chile.

While poblanos tend to have a mild flavor, occasionally and unpredictably a poblano can have significant heat. Different peppers from the same plant have been reported to vary substantially in heat intensity.

One of the most popular peppers grown in Mexico, the plant (of the species Capsicum annuum) is multi-stemmed and can reach 25 inches in height.
