Chile Ancho Flakes

Chile Ancho is a mild, sweet-tasting variety of a dried ripened poblano chilli. Our chewy, nugget-like flakes are made from deseeded and diced whole ancho chillies.

Wrinkly-skinned ancho chillies are the most commonly used dried chilli in México with a fruity, earthy flavour that’s indispensable whether you’re making salsas, sauces or stews.

  • Really Cool Chile Fact

    Ancho (ahn-choh) chillies are made by drying fresh poblano chillies. Their name comes from their broad shape when dried (‘ancho’ means wide in Spanish).
