Ancho Chili Pepper Seeds

The Poblano Pepper is key to the cuisine of Mexico. This pepper is used numerous ways including in sauces, stews. It is also large enough to stuff. The Poblano Pepper is a medium sized pepper with a mild to medium heat level which makes it fantastic for use in the kitchen. If you are just starting to enjoy cooking with peppers this is the pepper to start with because it is very flavorful without as much heat as a Serrano, Jalapeno or Habanero.

The Poblano, when dried, becomes a broad, flat, heart-shaped pod called an Ancho Chile (meaning "wide" in Spanish), often ground into a powder used for flavoring recipes. ("Poblano" is also the name of an inhabitant of Puebla, Mexico, and refers to this pepper's origin).
