Poblano/Ancho Chili Pepper
The Poblano chili pepper is a dark, rich green color and doesn’t typically turn red like other peppers. This is a pretty good sized pepper that is cone shaped, has a unique flavor and is very fleshy. The “Ancho” pepper is simply the dried version of a poblano. It is a popular pepper in the Mexican cuisine. It’s not real hot, but is full of flavor. It ranks between 1000 and 2000 on the Scoville Heat scale.
Uses of the Poblano
Poblanos are used in a variety of dishes. One of the most popular Mexican dishes which requires the use of a poblano is the chili relleno. Sometimes, an Anaheim is used in place of a poblano because it’s unsure how hot the poblano chili might be. When the poblano is dried, it is called an ancho or a mulato pepper. Another popular use of the poblano is to use it to make stuffed peppers. It can add a delightful flavor.
